Hollywood has seen a number of broken engagements recently. Now that Kristin Cavallari, Kat Von D and Crystal Harris are back on the market, what should they do with their rings?

Celebuzz talked to Andrew Streyer, a certified gemologist and Director of Evaluations for, to evaluate their sparklers. Andrew says it's actually very common for a former bride-to-be to sell her engagement ring, rather than give it back to the man who popped the question. Hey, he GAVE it to her, ok? 

How much does he value these celebrity diamonds?

Firstly, he says, "A stylish setting, or designer setting, will net you more money, but either way most of the money is in the diamond."

With that in mind, he says the market value for each of the rings is vastly different -- with Kat Von D's being the most expensive. 

He says the tattooed reality babe could fetch $325,000 for her ring, depending on the clarity and color. 

Meanwhile, he values Kristin's ring at $70,000 at wholesale or auction and Crystal's ring at "possibly $45,000."

If they do decide to sell, they should do it quickly, because Andrew says the price won't likely be any more due to their celebrity status. "Maybe in the short term, the glamour is still there, but usually not much more," he says.

    I think they should return them or beware of bad Karma. I imagine none of them are that desperate for money to sell them and the men are most likely not going to reuse them. Maybe they could auction them off for charity?

    Gold diggers keep rings; gentlewomen return them.
