Yes. Whether you'll win or not is another question...

Under the rules governing the conduct of attorneys in New York it may be necessary to remind you that this answer could be considered attorney advertising.

Engagement rings are considered gifts under the law of Minnesota. Therefore once you give her the ring, it is no longer your property. I litigate this issue quite frequently in divorce cases and generally judges have let the woman keep the ring. So although you can attempt to sue for return of the ring, you may be unsuccessful.
