Ex-etiquette: Divorce costs

Q. My wife is trying to get me to pay for all the divorce costs. We were married for two years. The wedding ring from our marriage is a family heirloom from my mother's side. I think my wife and I should split the cost of our divorce and when I told her that, she handed me the ring and said, "This should pay for anything I owe you." Our marriage didn't last, so I don't think she can put a monetary value on the ring. I think she should return it and pay for half the cost. What's good ex-etiquette?
