When Kris Humphries proposed to Kim Kardashian in May, he did so with the reality star’s “perfect” ring: a 20.5-carat bauble designed by Lorraine Schwartz. But now that the couple’s 72-day marriage has come to an end, what will become of the stunning sparkler?

Though mum’s the word for now, laws on the matter vary by state. Some states see engagement rings as gifts that can be kept by the receiver; others view broken marriages as breaches of contract, and suggest the ring be returned to the giver. However, it will likely be up to Kardashian and Humphries to decide who keeps the ring, which features a 16.5-carat emerald-cut center stone flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids. If you were Kardashian, what would you do?
