Woman Refuses To Return Her $30,000 Engagement Ring To Her Ex, Now He’s Suing Her


Here’s the scenario: girl meets guy at a bar, guy proposes to girl three months later with $30,000 engagement ring, girl breaks up with guy, guy wants engagement ring back, girl doesn’t want to give it back.

I mean, would you want to?

This is exactly what happened between Philip Langer and Ashley Jae Chesler. According to the New York Post, Philip Langer wants the custom ring worth 30k back from his ex-fiancée. Of course, Ashley is like, “Over my dead body, buddy.” It’s been months, and she’s still holding onto the stunner. According to court papers, the custom ring is a “2.52 carat diamond surrounded by 34 rubies and another 55 smaller diamonds,” so it’s clear why she isn’t too keen on giving it up easily.

Now Philip is suing Ashley for the ring (or the $30,000, whatever works), saying that New York State law requires her to.

I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not an expert on dating, but I could have told this fool that getting engaged to a chick he met in a bar after three months was probably a terrible idea. It didn’t work for Khloe and Lamar, and it’s probably not going to work for you. And did you really expect her to just hand the ring back over? I know I would be hesitant.

Despite these dumb moves, it seems like Philip is right. According to NY State Law, “An engagement ring is considered a conditional gift, where the condition is that the marriage actually takes place. This means that if the marriage does not take place and the bachelor asks for the ring back, then the potential bride will most likely have to return the engagement ring to the bachelor.”

Better luck next time, Phil.
