Rick Ross called off his engagement to Lira Mercer less than two months after proposing, but we’re sure it was good while it lasted. What everyone really wants to know is: Did the Bawse get his $350,000 engagement ring back when they decided to call it quits?

Although Lira posted a photo of herself wearing the extravagant gift following news of their breakup, new reports say it was an old photo and she actually gave up the 11-carat rock before she and Rozay went their separate ways.

TMZ dishes:

Lira Galore posted a pic on Monday of her wearing the 11 carat, $350k rock … just a day after they broke up. 

We’re told it’s an old photo, and Rick has the ring firmly in his possession. We’re also told they broke off the engagement at Rick’s home and when Lira left she was not wearing the ring. We do not know the circumstances under which the ring left her finger for his hand.

If you’re wondering whether or not Lira’s the rightful owner of the engagement ring, she isn’t – at least not in the state of Georgia.

If Lira wanted to keep the ring, it was a losing battle. In Georgia, an engagement ring is a “gift in contemplation of marriage” … meaning if the couple doesn’t get hitched, the guy gets it back.

Hey… you win some, you lose some.
