Engagement Ring

The Mississippi Court of Appeals decided Lomax v. Lomax last week located here.  The issue in the case was whether an engagement ring was martial property.  The court ultimately found it was separate property given before the marriage.  It had all the criteria of a gift.  This was despite the fact that the husband claimed it was a family heirloom that the wife was only to keep temporarily.
