Someone quoted the law on the previous page, and it looks like the gentleman in question has no recourse. Whether or not she 'owes' the ring back to him in a moral light is hard to say without knowing the couple and what sort of relationship they had. For all we know, one of them lived with the other without contributing to rent or bills, which I think would more relevant to a financial question than the sexual behaviour of either partner.

Yep, so is keeping the ring...
Many people get engagement rings on 0% finance over 2/3 years and have split up before they have finished paying for the ring never mind the wedding itself.
She wont give it back so move on with your life and thank god you did not marry her !
Coming back to question: contact one on those no win no fee solicitors If they cant get it back nobody can! ( or maybe kidnap her garden gnomes,only if she left you):j
As far as i know, this hasn't changed.
She's not letting you have the ring back for one of these reasons:
1. She hates you, and knowing you want it back, she's not going to let you have it;
2. She still loves you and is keeping it as a memory of all the fine times you had together;
3. She's had it valued and is going to sell it, or has already sold it;
4. She's lost it / someone's stolen it / mugged her;
5. Someone has told her it's an imitation, so she's chucked it in the bin, and that person has retrieved it later;
6. The dog swallowed it / it fell down a plug hole or drain;
7. Following the break-up she's been eating like mad and can no longer get it off her (fatter) finger.
8. Something even sillier (suggestions welcome)
Whatever happens, you're not getting it back!
If both parties breaks off amicably (e.g. On good terms and not because of infidelity) then the ring should be returned to the purchaser.
If your fianc!e has broken off because of your infidelity then no it should not be returned to you - as they are the 'injured' party.
If you broke up with your fianc!e because of their infidelity then yes, you are the 'injured' party and they don't deserve such a trinket.
Hope this helps.
