Despite splitting from Jake Pavelka, Vienna Girardi is still wearing her engagement ring.

The new issue of Us Weekly, on stands Wednesday, has exclusive photos of Girardi in L.A. Monday with the $50,000, 3-carat Neil Lane bauble. The former Hooters waitress, 24, was wiping tears from her eyes just hours before a rep for the couple confirmed their breakup to

Girardi was all smiles earlier as she got her hair done at L.A.'s Platinum Image Spa.

A shocked Pavelka, 32, broke his silence early Tuesday morning to Us. "I don't really know what's going on," he said.

He also told photographers, "I'm saddened by the whole thing. Sometimes love just isn't enough in a relationship."

He said he still speaks to Girardi: "No matter what happens, Vienna and I will remain friends."
