Is Crystal Harris Auctioning Off Hugh Hefner’s Engagement Ring?
A ring that looks suspiciously like Crystal Harris’ engagement ring has shown up at Christie’s. Is she trying to auction it off?
After Crystal Harris and Hugh Hefner broke off their engagement just days before the wedding, one question was very firmly on a lot of people’s minds: What was going to happen to the engagement ring? Well, TMZ thinks they’ve found out: Crystal might just be putting it on the auction block at Christie’s next month.
Just in case haven’t seen pictures of it before, here’s Crystal’s engagement ring:
It’s a beauty, isn’t it? Hef didn’t settle for mere gold—this ring is platinum, and it’s set with a 3.39 carat circular-cut diamond.
And hey, look what showed up on the Christie’s website!:
It’s a 3.39 carat circular-cut diamond set it in platinum! What a coincidence!
However, it hasn’t been confirmed that this is, in fact, Crystal’s ring, so maybe we should still take this news with a pretty hefty grain of salt. It might just be a remarkably similar ring. Stranger things have happened.
Interestingly, though, the worth Crystal’s ring was estimated at $90,000 according to the Daily Mail, while the ring listed on the Christie’s website is expected to fetch only $20,000 to $30,000 at auction. If it IS Crystal’s, maybe she just wants to get rid of the damn thing as quickly as possible; after all, $30,000 is still nothing to sneeze at. I mean, I could live off of $30,000 for an entire year—even in New York, where the ridiculously high cost of living terrifies its denizens daily.
Then again, Hef is the one who’s out $90,000, so if we should be feeling sorry for anyone, maybe it’s him. Women can be cruel. Isn’t that right, Hef?
Tell us: What do you think? Is Crystal auctioning off her ring?
