Britney Spears

Here's Your

Ring Back

0111_britney_spears_engagement_ring_Article_1
The newly-unencumbered Jason Trawick is once again the proud owner of a $90,000 engagement ring ... because we've learned Britney Spears has already given it back.

Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Jason did not ask Brit to return the 3.5-carat, Neil Lane ring ... she returned it on her own.

By the way ... there are reports that Britney bought the ring herself. Not true.

FUN FACT:  In California, the ring -- which in legalese is a "gift in contemplation of marriage" -- must be returned if the wedding is cancelled, UNLESS the dude is the one who called the whole thing off.  If it's a mutual break-up, or if the woman is the one who pulls the plug, the ring goes back to the guy.

The question -- If Jason gets engaged again, is it bad luck to give that ring to his fiancée?

they should also have to give the ring back if they end the marriage after 72 days.

Jason, here's your chance. Please find a Jewish girl. You know the saying, "there's nothing worse than an old shiksa!"

Bad luck? No! But luck is something different than common decency! Every women wants something special for her! Not what some other women gave back!

They seem to have a lot of fondness for each other , love and respect.
People around Brittney are probably still pushing her career and another pregnancy would get in the way,
Lots and lots of greedy people seem to surround some of these vulnerable artists.After all, it is big business.
I hope they both find happiness, either on their own or getting back together..

Oh please! She bought it herself and it isn't a $90,000 ring.

Ok no guy should ever give a ring that one woman wore(unless it is a family heirloom such as the Diana ring or any ring handed down that has family sentimentality)to another woman. Secondly I do not care who breaks the engagement IMHO the ring should be returned unless the guy does not want it(he may say sell it and keep the money). I for one would not want to wear the ring of someone I decided I did not care to marry or who did not care to marry me. I would return it if we did marry and then Bam although I do not see myself getting married if I was not sure.
