Alex, I didn't know the value of the ring mattered. It is a hyperthetical question. If the value does matter then let me know please. I re-itterate that the main thing I need is a case or two to quote with regard to this subject. Thanks Karen.
Ok let me look into this
Hi Alex. If it helps the ring is worth £20,000. Karen
Hello Karen, I have researched this.
The case you need is:
The header is: When an engagement ring is given by a man to a woman, there is an implied condition that the ring shall be returned if the engagement is broken off.
Jacobs v Davis  2 KB 532, 86 LJKB 1497
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
This is supported by:
Cohen v Sellar -  All ER Rep 312
Alfred Maragh v ***** ***** And Edith Williams; Rachael Williams v Leonard Maragh - (1970) 16 WIR 322
Does that help?
