Crystal Harris -- Pawn Queen

6/25/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Crystal Harris is angling to cash in on the $90,000 engagement ring Hugh Hefner slipped on her finger ... with a little help from a San Diego jewelry store.

Our jewelry spies were there when Harris stepped inside Prospect Jewelers in La Jolla, CA, asking for an appraisal on the ring.

The owner asked Harris if there was any documentation on the quality of the ring (cut, clarity, etc.,) but the playmate was in the dark. So Crystal called over to the Playboy Mansion -- on speaker phone -- for info on the ring.  The person on the other end of the line offered to fax Crystal the info -- but not immediately -- so Crystal left.

Our spy overheard the owner telling Crystal he was sorry to hear about Hef, to which Crystal replied, "Are you kidding? It was all for publicity."

WHAT? Their love wasn't real??? Get out!!!!

I think the fault lays with Hef almost as much as Crystal. He's been around beautiful women his whole life. He should've seen her coming a mile away. Maybe he's slipping in his old age. A Hef in his prime would have sniffed her out.

Sheesh. Wait a decent period of time and be discreet. Liek get someone else to so this. On the other hand, Hef's not exactly a class act either.....

Why doesn't this lowlife and gold digging trash give back that ring to Hugh Hefner? Didn't she run away from the wedding?

I've noticed Hef is already hanging around some 25 yr. old. I remember Mike Francesa mentioning one time that the hardest thing for an athlete to do is to call it a career, as it means symbolically they are also giving up their youth. I just hope Hef has the wisdom to know when to call it a career.

That anyone comments on this is as stupid as the two people directly involved.

Almost all women do as she did except on a smaller, more socially aceptable scale: it's about being taken care of by a guy. She's just an exaggerated white trash Human Barbie doll version of it. She's upset your middle class version of the socially acceptable contract of sex for money/marriage.

Hef is trying to rev up a dying, dumpy magazine 40 years past its prime. And selling dreams of breast implanted "available" slutskies to rubes from the mid west who think its cool to jo to pictures or live like a hipster.

Two users who deserve each other.

The rest of you, who read this crap daily and actually "feel" outrage, need to read a book other than the Bible or Readers Digest.

I'm sure both her and hef where in on it. She needed attention and he is an old bastard.
The thing is that starting your career as a hefner whore is not the road to A list stardom. Sleeping with an old prune who knows he will get it for a spot on a show and a magazine. Jackpot.

what's up with all the racism and woman bashing? one whore screws over one rich dude and ALL WHITE women are the same?

Fred Farkel
"White women have all morphed into gold-digging whores.
ALL OF THEM.
NO EXCEPTIONS.
Even the ugly ones in the mid-west."

my suggestion to you and anyone else who shares your opinion is to change teams if you don't like how we are. f**king moron...
