Kelly Clarkson may have a blingin' canary yellow diamond on her left ring finger, but she's got another ring of MAJOR sentimental value on her right hand as well!
Fiance Brandon Blackstock surprised Kelly with a turquoise ring that's almost the exact replica of a ring once owned by Jane Austen, of whom the singer is a HUGE fan!
As we mentioned before, Kelly bought the original ring at a London auction, but wasn't able to actually fly it overseas with her!
"They claimed it as a national treasure and I can’t take it out of the United Kingdom. Behind my back, Brandon was trying to get that ring out of the country as my engagement ring. He was trying to work with my lawyer and they wouldn’t do it.”
Why would you let someone bid on a ring that can't leave the country?! But we digress.
Wanting to make his lady love happy as can be, Brandon commissioned a Beverly Hills jeweler to make a replica.
"It looks just like [the original] except he embellished the gold with diamonds. I’m such a hopeless romantic. Obviously — I’m a Jane Austen fan!"
Aww, they're like a modern-day Elizabeth and Darcy!
The 30-year-old has already been seen wearing the ring at the Inauguration last month and just a few days ago at the Grammys, and we bet we'll be seeing a lot more of it from here on out!
