It's only been a few weeks since WWE power couple Nikki Bella and John Cena called off their engagement — but what did she do with the ring? A new report reveals that the 34-year-old tried to give it back.
"Nikki tried to return the Tiffany & Co. engagement ring to John, but he refused to accept it," a source told Us Weekly. "Nikki loves the ring but didn't want to keep it because she had been the one to call off the wedding."
Apparently, John, 41, is hoping the two will reconcile. "John is hoping they will get back together, which was the main reason why he refused it. Even if they don't get back together, John wanted Nikki to keep it as a reminder of their love."
A second source added, "[John's] made it very clear to the world that he's not giving up on their relationship and that he loves her. And Nikki has made it clear to the world that she's taking time for herself and needs to focus on that right now."

Just one week after announcing their split, Nikki stepped out without her big ol' rock. The star's left ring finger was noticeably bare as she attended the Nirvana Food & Wine Festival with her twin sister Brie Bella and her sister-in-law, What Lola Likes blogger Lauren Garcia.
She took to Instagram on Sunday, April 22 to share a handful of photos from the event, which she attended on behalf of the wine brand that she owns with Brie, Belle Radici. Nikki smiled and laughed in the photos, seemingly making it very clear that she isn't sad about her split from John.
Although the actual reason for their breakup is slightly unclear, one thing's for sure — it wasn't due to cheating. A source confirmed to Hollywood Life that the two were always monogamous. "There was no cheating between the two. It was just the commitment of marriage that was the elephant in the room. They both had different ideas of where and when they wanted to do it and if they wanted to do it at all. They never got on the same wavelength when it came to that, which was the catalyst to the relationship ending." RIP love.
