An Australian has sparked heated debate online after she put her expensive engagement ring up for sale on Facebook after her relationship ended.

The Tiffany & Co ring is valued at more than $26,000, but the woman is selling it for just $18,500 on a Facebook group that specializes in luxury items.

Many people commented on the post, arguing that the woman should have returned the ring after their relationship ended.

“Generally, if the marriage does not go through, the ring belongs/goes back to the person who proposed,” commented one user.

“It will be considered a gift and it is hers!” wrote another.

The topic was a hot topic at Sunrise, and many people shared their thoughts.

“An engagement ring is a gift,” said journalist Derryn Hinch, who has been married five times.

“It’s a sign that you want to get married, but if the relationship ends then you’re not entitled to get the ring back.”

Commentator Kathy Lipari agreed.

“Where does this idea that it’s illegal to keep a gift come from? It’s crazy,” Lipari said.

“Should she have to return every gift (received) during their relationship?”

But Melbourne residents that Sunrise spoke to thought the ring should be returned.

“I can see how the man might have some rights to it after spending so much money,” one person told Sunrise reporter Sarah-Jane Bell.

“Give the ring back!” said another.
