Words are, the 3.39 carat circular-cut diamond ring is up for auction at Christie's in New York in October because Crystal Harris couldn't bear to look at it anymore.
Crystal Harris is getting rid of the engagement ring she got from ex-fiance Hugh Hefner. TMZ reported the former Playboy Playmate, who called off her wedding to the 85-year-old just days before the big day in June, has put her 3.39 carat diamond ring up for auction which will take place in October at Christie's in New York.
A description put on the auction house's site read, "A diamond ring. Set with a circular-cut diamond, weighing approximately 3.39 carats, to the circular-cut diamond hoop, mounted in platinum." In its listing, it was revealed that the sparkler is expected to sell somewhere in between $20,000 and $30,000.
On the reason behind the auction, a source told TMZ that Crystal "couldn't bear to look at the ring anymore because it brought back bad memories." The 25-year-old, however, wrote recently on Twitter, "dont believe everything you hear," in response to a follower's criticism, "When you break the engagement, you give the ring back. Maybe no one told you that. It's the honorable thing. Golddigging c**t."
Crystal got engaged to Hef on Christmas night, December 25, 2010, but five days before the big day she called off the wedding. Following the split, she reportedly tried to return the $90,000 engagement ring and Bentley car the Playboy founder gave her, but he allegedly told her to keep them.
