Can I sell my engagement ring if we broke things off? Posted on February 18, 2011

I recently broke off my engagement. My ex owes me money from our joint credit card bill (where he was only the authorized user and therefore does not have the debt in his name). He gave me written permission to sell the ring and told me to use the money to cover his debt. However, jewelers have quoted me prices that they will pay for the ring, and they are nowhere near the amount that he owes me. So I have been holding onto the ring until he pays me. Can he sue me for keeping the engagement ring (which I have every intention of returning when he pays me?
