They never have to return the ring, it's a gift on any day it's used.

"Conditional gifts are the exception to the rule that gifts cannot be revoked if given properly. Though the receiver may be able to prove that the engagement ring was a gift, the ring could still be returned to the giver if the court considers the engagement ring a conditional gift.

A conditional gift is one where the giver gives the gift to the receiver with the expectation that some future event or action will take place. If the agreed-upon event does not occur or the agreed-upon condition is not met, then the gift-giver has the right to get the gift back. The majority of courts classify engagement rings as a conditional gift, and award the engagement ring to the giver in broken engagement cases.

Thus, there is a trend toward a "no-fault" approach. Simply stated, at the end of an engagement, the ring reverts to the gift-giver regardless of fault. In other words, she has to return the ring no matter what. New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, New Mexico, Wisconsin, Kansas, and Iowa all currently apply the no-fault approach."

If the ring is given on a day where it is customary to give gifts then the ring is no longer seen as a "conditional gift" and is instead viewed as a normal one, thus nullifying both of the above cases. Basically girls have to give the ring back unless the ring was given as something other than a conditional gift.

You're obviously not married.

This applies to a broken engagement, not a divorce.
