Engagement Rings – Kentucky

In Kentucky, engagement ring is “gift in consideration of marriage” which must be returned on divorce.  In Walter v. Moore, the court held that a ring given by a man to the woman to whom he was engaged to marry as a token of the engagement is given in consideration of the agreement to marry, although the agreement is not entered into in consideration of the ring being given.[1]  Therefore, the man is entitled to the return of the ring upon a judgment of divorce being entered after the marriage of the parties, under Ky. Stats. section 2121, entitling each party to a return of property received before or during the marriage in consideration thereof.
