"She offered to give the engagement ring back to Jay, and he took it," an insider close to the former <em>Hills</em> star divulges to <em>Life & Style</em>.<br />
Handing over the 5.2-carat-diamond bling wasn't easy for the 24-year-old, who was stunned by Jay's sudden decision to split on July 23.
Kristin had previously told Life & Style that her ex-fiancé did an "amazing job" picking out the ring. "It's absolutely beautiful. It's an Asscher-cut diamond, which is my favorite," she said in April.
Kristin felt Jay started acting differently shortly before the split. "She noticed a change in him," shares the insider. "He suddenly became more supportive of her career. Up till then, he'd always talked about it coming to an end once they got married. It was like Jay knew he was leaving the relationship and didn't want Kristin to miss out on great opportunities in LA."
