Crystal Harris's ring from Hefner to be auctioned?

Hugh Hefner's former fiancee Crystal Harris has said she didn't know what to do with the diamond engagement ring Hef let her keep, but it seems she's figured it out.

According to TMZ, Harris has put the 3.39 carat rock up for auction at Christie's in New York. The bauble, estimated to be worth $90,000, will be sold to the highest bidder next month. A listing is estimating that the ring will rake in somewhere between $20,000 and $30,000.

Anonymous sources tell TMZ that Harris just couldn't bear to keep the jewelry, since looking at it brought back "bad memories." Crystal herself, however, has tweeted in response to a remark about her keeping the ring, "don't believe everything you hear."

Harris, if you'll recall, is the Playboy Playmate 85-year-old Hefner was on track to wed in June. They never made it down the aisle, however, because aspiring singer Harris called off the wedding five days before the ceremony.

    Putting the ring on auction is an acceptable move I guess. It's gotta be really expensive, even a href="">pre-owned watches nyc at e-bay are sky rocketing expensive.

    He's just too old. I once dated a very old man like Hef and sleeping with him was the most disgusting thing I ever did. Sorry, but that's how I felt. He felt bad about it too and gave me money to ease his guilt. Ladies, stay with men that are age appropriate.

      I bet sleeping with you is no picnic, either. Your sweaty fat rolls stinking up the bed, your farting all night, that nasty briar patch between your legs and those floppy pancakes sagging from you chest.

      I wouldn't worry. Her 15 minutes are already up. Whatever amount she gets for the ring won't last her very long. She'll be the next hostess at Planet Hollywood.

    Yes, by all means, let's focus on a gold digger and the old perv with too much money... Maybe if we figure this one out we can move on to better n more important things like the economy or world hunger, but let's focus our attention on this fabulous event in human history.

    anyone who thinks these young women, in the prime of their life, with extrme youth, beauty & vitality ever "loved" Hefner is delusional. yes, they may care about him but it is not "love" in the sense of a physical attraction. She probsbly read the prenup & figured it wasn't worth it to committ to a marriage & he told her to keep the ring. did anyone really think she wouldn't sell it? let's get real...i am a former "trophy" girlfriend & know what I am talking about....

    I am jso glad she let QUICKIE GO! She knew the deal. How did she LAY there all this time with this OLD OLD MAN and sleep withhim. I Thank Her for letting this OLD OLD FOOL GO! Heff, go sit in a chair and enjoy a movie. Go visit some nursing homes and find a friendship with someone your AGE. OOPS That's a BAD WORD, AGE!!!!!!!!and yes I know age is nothing but a number, but his AGE minus a babies age is DISGUSTING!

    I was waiting to see what charity she was going to donate the money to. I guess she's the charity. Speaks volumes of her intentions in regard to Hefner. Auctioning it off is about the cheapest, tackiest thing she could do. If she had an decency she would give it back to Hef.

    Proof she is a money grubbin ho, a classy lady returns the ring when you dump a dude. Some states require it legally to be returned.

      If you are calling her a money-grubbing ho, I can't imagine what you are calling Hugh Hefner. Talk about needing to put on some real clothes and relax in the sunshine! That old dude is such a loser piece of c__p.........

    I read that she offered to give back the ring but Hef told her to keep it! I also read that she knew it was a marriage in name only, that Hef had already picked out her replacement & that she didn't feel good about continuing a charade (plus I think She had a hot young boy-friend waiting)! I'm guessing she's in need of some quick cash now that Hef is no longer footing her bills, & her "singing career" is stalled! Ring comes in "handy"!! 😉

    Yes, I know just I would have kept it because it's a piece of what you shared together, your love, etc.. I stayed friends with some of my EXs and it's cool.

    Normally the ring goes back. The don't keep them! I doubt if Hef really cares. He gets a piece here and there and pays a small price to get prime meat!

    @mimi~ Yeah...that's pretty sad. I know he played the game and he got a lot coming back to him. If she wasn't in love with him she shouldn't have played the old fool. Well he is an az$ also to think she would go for him. Either way I don't think he was in love as well. So pretty much..2 media attention fools.. Money makes one stupid I guess.

    Reply to B-Vixen: I never, for one moment, believed she genuinely loved Hugh. But I will say she's one smart cookie because she knew there are a dime & a dozen like her, so to get her 15 minutes of fame & get noticed, she pretended to be in love with Hugh and accepted the engagement. Then once she got the attention & realized the wedding day is closing in, she wanted out.

      Ah, yes. The ol, "Tell em you love em so they buy you a ring, them dump em and keep the ring and sell it for cash." Right out of the player's playbook. Sure beats trying to make it on your own. I wonder who the next sap will be?

    Wow..seems like he meant sh!t to her. If she really had loved him, she would have just kept the ring.
