Not since a certain journey to Middle-earth has a ring caused so much fuss.
As it is, Miley Cyrus has broken her silence in the wake of rampant speculation that she got engaged to her beau of three years, Hunger Games hunk Liam Hemsworth—rumors sparked over the weekend when the teen dream kept showing off what appeared to be a diamond sparkler on that finger.
Well, guess what? Things aren't always what they appear to be.
"I'm not engaged," Miley tweeted this morning. "I've worn this same ring on this finger since November! People just wanna find something to tal about! It's a topaz people!"
It's a topaz that Miley had no problem showcasing without comment on Twitter last week, ostensibly while showing off her manicure.
Then a few days later, she appeared on Liam's arm at the Muhammad Ali Celebrity Fight Night, and by that point, there was no stopping the speculation.
Well, until now, that is.
