Do you want a piece of a failed relationship? Do you want the expensive symbol of a romance that imploded in the harsh public eye? Then we have a deal for you!

Crystal Harris, the Playboy model who broke off her engagement with Hugh Hefner, is putting her 3.39 carat diamond engagement ring up for auction. The $90,000 dollar ring (reported cost) is expected to fetch a more realistic $20-$30,000 when it hits Christie's in New York.

A source claims that Crystal "couldn't bear to look at the ring anymore because it brought back bad memories." So naturally, the logical step is to put that bad memory up for a very public auction.

Crystal told Access Hollywood in July that "I got cold feet." That must be why she was spotted at a pool party in sunny Las Vegas on the exact day she and Hef were to be married -- she must have been warming her feet in the heated pool.
