A diamond isn't always forever ... sometimes it's only for 6 months -- especially for Hugh Hefner's ex-fiancee Crystal Harris ... who just put her engagement ring on a pretty famous auction block!

TMZ has learned ... the platinum ring, which boasts a 3.39 carat circular-cut diamond -- will be auctioned off by Christie's in NYC next month.

According to the listing, the ring is expected to sell somewhere in the range of $20 -$30k.

Sources close to Crystal tell us ... the former Playboy model "couldn't bear to look at the ring anymore because it brought back bad memories."

Think how the guy who paid for that rock feels ... right, Hef?

proper etiquette states that if the man breaks off the engagement, the woman keeps the ring
and if the woman breaks it off, she is supposed to give the ring back to the man

not that I'd expect someone amoral like her (or Hef for that matter) to know that

Hef should sue her for the amount she gets for the ring since the ring is given on a condition that there will be a wedding. She called off the wedding so he is entitled to get his ring back!

Isn't it customary to return the ring when you break off an engagement?

Such BULLSH*T. She's a gold digging money grubbing whore who said she's marry him just to get the publicity. Her only "bad memories" are that she didn't take him for more money. If she had even one ounce of dignity or integrity, she would have given the ring back instead of selling it to feed her attention whoring addiction...

Bad memories ? Or Bad Bed memories ? :) In our modern crazy world of everything about the Money, the humans go downhill, selling themselves for things, becoming things themselves...

Anyone tha*****ches Judge Judy will tell you that an engagement ring is part of a contract, as a deposit. If the contract is broken, for what ever reason, the ring HAS TO BE RETURNED. No matter what this woman sells or pawns this ring for, Mr. Hefner's lawers will go after her for the FULL PRICE he paid for it.

Since she bailed on the wedding she should have returned the ring - not sell it like the sleaze she is. Low life!

THAT'S IT? HE'S DIRT CHEAP! An engagement ring should be three pay checks not 1% of one of your pay checks.

OMG, these two are both ridiculous. Hef....you really thought she loved you????? She was there for one thing. Sorry, but a 20 year old is not getting weak in the knees for any 90yr old. The whole thing is a crime against love. Grow up people!!!!!

First off, an engagment ring is a legally a gift that is given in good faith as a promise of marriage. Long story short, it's legally not her ring to sell. Grow a set Hef and sue this gold digging biotch!!
