i was once in paris and a girl tried this exact scam on my wife and i near the arc de triomphe. she gave me the ring and later asked me for some money since she was poor and hungry. it didn't make any sense to me that she would give away a gold ring if she was indeed poor so i was obviously suspicious. instead of money, i offered her some food that i had in my backpack. she turned it down and asked for the ring back. i always figured it was a scam, but now i know without a doubt.
