Starfield ‘A Break at Dawn’: Should you keep the engagement ring or give it to Yumi?

Starfield often presents you with moral choices, making you choose between credits and being a good person. The New Atlantic mission, A Break at Dawn, presents you with a decision like this: Should you keep the engagement ring you confiscated from Hugo or give it to Yumi at Security?

Starfield’s A Break at Dawn mission sees you hunting down a ‘criminal’ who stole a valuable ring from a man called Octavio. It turns out it was an engagement ring and was kept by the victim’s scorned lover, Hugo, after the two had a big bust-up at a local restaurant. If you decided to persuade Hugo to give back the ring, then you’re left with a choice: Do you keep it and sell it, or return it to Yumi as instructed?

Whatever your decision, you need to return to Yumi at UC Security to complete the mission. When you speak to him, he asks you whether you’ve recovered the ring. If you want to keep the ring, choose the option “[Keep Ring] The ring wasn’t stolen. It was gifted.”

Yumi accepts your explanation and, despite your fault morals, you are rewarded 2000 Credits and 100 XP. You also have a shiny new ring that you can sell at a merchant for 675 Credits.
