Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson were apparently spotted browsing for engagement rings just weeks before news of the actress’s fling with Rupert Sanders emerged, according to reports.
The couple have always been notoriously private about their relationship but are thought to have been dating for around three years.
And it seems that they may have been getting set to take the next step, after reportedly being seen browsing at exclusive jeweller Neil Lane.
A source is quoted telling the Daily Star newspaper: "They looked so much in love. He could not stop staring at her as she tried on gold rings."
Rob was said to be planning to splash the cash on a whopping big diamond sparkler for his Twilight lovely, to present to K-Stew as he asked for her hand in marriage, setting him back around $500,000.
But hopes of a happy ending for the pair now seem rather distant, after removal vans were seen at the luxurious mansion they shared in Los Feliz, Los Angeles.
It’s not entirely clear if Rob has moved out or Kristen has fled - or perhaps both of them have – but either way the signs aren’t looking too good for the Hollywood couple.
Stories emerged last week that Kristen had been caught in a compromising position with the director of Snow White and the Huntsman, Rupert Sanders.
Fans of the 22-year-old actress had initially hoped that it was nothing more than a mere rumour.
But their worst fears were confirmed when K-Stew released a statement apologising for her actions. The statement, published by People, read: "I'm deeply sorry for the hurt and embarrassment I've caused to those close to me and everyone this has affected.
“This momentary indiscretion has jeopardized the most important thing in my life, the person I love and respect the most, Rob. I love him, I love him, I'm so sorry.”
Rupert also released a statement that said: “I am utterly distraught about the pain I have caused my family.
“My beautiful wife and heavenly children are all I have in this world. I love them with all my heart. I am praying that we can get through this together.”
Rob and Kristen are said to be barely on speaking terms, with the pair communicating solely by text message.
But Rupert and his wife Liberty, who have two children together, are said to be trying to repair the damage to their marriage.
South African actress Charlize Theron – who became friends with both Liberty and Kristen during the filming of Snow White and the Huntsman – is said to be “absolutely fuming” with K-Stew for becoming involved with Rupert and feels “betrayed” following the revelations.
