A broken engagement is almost always a source of pain, disappointment, and turmoil for those involved.

But for one formerly betrothed couple in Florida, there’s also a huge rock worth thousands of dollars on the line.

Wyatt Koch has filed suit against Ivie Gabrielle Slocumb, his ex-fiancée, saying she failed to return her $ 250,000 engagement ring once their relationship ended, The Daily Mail reported Wednesday.

According to the Palm Beach Daily News, Koch bought the ring for $ 180,000 at Manufacturing Jewelers on New York’s Madison Avenue in March.

Koch is the 31-year-old son of the billionaire William Koch, who broke away from his brothers in the 1990s and hosted fundraisers for Donald Trump during his presidential campaign, according to Fortune.

Wyatt Koch lives in Florida, where he runs a fashion line, Wyatt Ingraham.

Here’s a look at the life and career of Wyatt Koch.

Koch’s parents, William Koch and Joan Granlund, divorced when he was young, and he was raised in Greenwich, Connecticut, and New York. He told Palm Beach Illustrated that he had fond memories of spending time at Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard too.

Koch’s love of fashion began early, from when he first donned a “Yves Saint Laurent black with white pinstripes ensemble” at the age of 15. He told the Palm Beach Record that he was voted “most fashionable” in high school.
