Kelly Clarkson easily waved the white surrender flag over her winning bid on a turquoise ring that once belonged to English novelist Jane Austin. After Clarkson bought the ring last year, a temporary export ban was put into place by the government in England, preventing Kelly from brining the ring home. While all this was happening The Austen Museum folks were able to raise 245 thousand dollars and buy the ring back!

So yes, the ring stays in the U.K. Kelly Clarkson said at the end of all of this, she’s happy that Jane Austen fans in England will get to see the national treasure.
