As goes the ring, so goes the union.
As Tom returned yesterday to the California set of Oblivion, his bare ring finger did not go unnoticed.
Although Katie made her jewel-free public debut in New York back on July 2, Cruise has been keeping a low profile since word of their split broke, finally surfacing yesterday on the set of his new sci-fi thriller.
Earlier in the day, Tom was spotted receiving hugs from members of the crew; by the time the final scene of the day was shot, he was seen chatting with a photographer, casually draping his arm around the man's shoulder and showing off, in full view of the trailing paparazzi, his deblinged fingers.
In any case, there'll undoubtedly be more photo ops to analyze in the coming days as filming is expected to continue on location in June Lake through the end of the week.
