Crystal Harris, Hugh Hefner

Elayne Lodge/ Playboy

Hugh Hefner's runaway bride is getting some serious bling the second time around.

Crystal Harris showed off her new, improved engagement ring on Twitter Tuesday. "My beautiful ring from @hughhefner," the 26-year-old blond beauty wrote, just weeks ahead of her and the Playboy mogul's New Year's Eve wedding.

Crystal, of course, was supposed to say "I do" to Hef, 86, in June 2011 but got cold feet. Although she initially planned to return her original 3.39-carat sparkler to her fiancé, she ultimately sold it for half its value at Christie's Auction House in October 2011.

But to all of you concerned about Hef's heart this time around, don't worry. "Dear past, thank you for all the lessons," his second-time fiancée tweeted recently. "Dear future, I'm ready."

Second time's the charm. Let's just hope no bunny gets hurt!
