Jennifer Lawrence caused a media meltdown when she was pictured flashing a huge diamond sparkler on her ring finger while posing for a photo with director David O. Russell last week.
But when the giant rock had been removed for the Oscar-winner's glamorous red carpet appearance at the London Hunger Games: Catching Fire premiere just days later, confusion set in.
While J-Law stunned in her decedant Dior gown, her rumoured engagement candy was nowhere to be seen - and now we know why.
A close source has just leaked to E! News that the A-list actress is 'not engaged' to her British boyfriend Nicholas Hoult. 'The ring is not an engagement ring', it added.
While wedding bells may not be on the horizon for the too-cool couple, who recently reignited their on/off romance earlier this summer, they are said to be stronger than ever, with many expecting the lovebirds to say 'I do' in the not-to-distant future.
Us included. We're suckers for a fairytale ending.
