Courtney Robertson split form fiance Ben Flajnik…so she’s giving back the ring!
The Bachelor winner scored a stunning $80,000 Neil Lane engagement ring from Ben on The Bachelor season finale back in 2011. After attempts to take it slow, make it work, and…I don’t know…every slow-down synonym in the book, the two are calling it quits. Court is returning the ring this week, after the two formally announced last week that they’re calling their relationship quits.
“She still has the engagement ring, but she is returning it to the jewelers this week,” a source close to Robertson tells RadarOnline.com exclusively about the 3-carat custom cushion cut diamond ring. “It’s still in her possession, but she isn’t wearing it anymore.”
Ouch. Even sadder?
The fact that the contestants need to stay together for a certain amount of time after the show is over in order to keep the ring. Until then, the ring is technically considered the property of ABC. If (and when) the couple splits, the ring must be returned as soon as possible to ABC.
So, who gets the ring? Does it go to some blinged out prop house, with the rest of ‘em?
