Hours before Kris Jenner and Bruce Jenner told E! News they were separating, our favorite momager had taken off her wedding ring.

The Kardashian matriarch paid a visit to a storage center in Calabasas, Calif., on Tuesday, Oct. 7, looking chic and casual in a white button-down, jeans and black boots. While she was wearing two simple bands on her left thumb and forefinger, that finger was noticeably missing the giant sparkler she'd worn the past 22 years of marriage.

Fortunately, though, Kris and Bruce's split is an amicable one. "We are living separately and we are much happier this way," the pair said. "But we will always have much love and respect for each other. Even though we are separated, we will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority."

The separation doesn't come as a complete surprise. Kris, 57, has been spotted without her wedding ring in recent weeks, and Bruce's Malibu bachelor pad was featured on Keeping Up With the Kardashians. While Kris, Bruce and the entire family were a united front refuting split rumors, a source told E! News this separation has "been coming for a while."

"Kris is in a good place about it, she accepted it and is very focused on other aspects of her life," added the source. "Obviously it is very sad for everyone, but it's no surprise and everyone has had time to adapt to this new reality."

Kris and Bruce, 63, are parents to Kylie and Kendall Jenner and each have four children from previous marriages.
