Suppose someone's partner presents them with an engagement ring that once belonged to their own ex-partner who they broke up with. This is type of 'recycling' unacceptable?

This situation has never happened to me, but with recycling a 'thing' nowadays, is there anything wrong with using an engagement ring that was given to someone who was engaged to the giver, but no longer is? To me it's not the same as using your mums or other relatives ring which has meaning to it so I'm not sure how I would take it if I was in this situation.

What do you think, would you be offended if this happened? Would you consider it bad luck? Or wouldn't it matter since a ring is a ring is a ring?

Its a bit in bad taste. And I would not want a ring that someone just turned up with, surely it should be a thing you need to pick out yourself and get the right size and design. I would be questioning the whole relationship if someone did this to me. The motive or reasoning behind someone thinking this is ok, would be a worry to me. Giving me a ring that was chosen for another person.
I would be running away as fast as I could.
I don't think there is anything wrong with recycling and I think it would be ok to take the stones out and reuse the gold to have it made into a new ring - that would maybe cost more than buying another ring.

I did design my own and it was a combination of my mother, mother-in-law and nan's that was made into a combined wide wedding band and engagement diamond. Reply

Difficult to answer Red... but i think it all depends on the intention(s) of the one whose giving. The receiver must ask the giver why he/she’s doing it. And if the reasons are more than enough for the receiver to understand and believe the giver, then that’s what I call a “True love”..ring is just a material thing. The relationship is more important. My opinion Red. Reply

If I was the recipient of an engagement ring.. consider it mine. It's a present so it wouldn't be returned in the first place... problem solved. New partner, new ring. Reply

I'd want to design/choose my own... not take what someone else rejected! Reply
