Did Jessica Simpson Pay for Her Own $100,000 Ring?

The sight of Jessica Simpson's $100,000 ruby-and-diamond Neil Lane engagement ring alone is enough to make you gasp, but the fact that she may have purchased it herself is enough to bring you to tears.
"No way could Eric, who doesn't have a job at the moment, afford to purchase such an expensive ring," a friend of Jessica's tells me. "Yes, he made a little bit of money in the NFL and is from a wealthy family, but unless his parents helped him out, Jessica must have paid for it herself."
Jessica, who unveiled her flashy bling on Nov. 14 at a Kansas City department store, has long made it clear that money is not an issue with her, but even so her friends are concerned about the star's $100 million fortune.
"First, we find out that Jessica doesn't want to have a prenup, and now we find out that she might have paid for her own ring. It just doesn't feel right to me," a family friend tells me. "We all want Jessica to be happy and finally find true love after all she has been through, but she doesn't understand that in the long run if she pays for everything it will hurt her relationship with any man."
Our friends at Stylist reveal that Jess's second engagement ring features an approximately 4-carat, oval-shaped ruby stone flanked by two diamonds from Neal Lane, known for his rare vintage jewels. Its worth is estimated to be at least $100,000.
"What's the big deal? Jessica has more money than she can ever spend," another friend explains. "If she wants to treat her future husband, friends or even herself to an expensive piece of jewelry, it's her business and no one else."
What do you think? It just doesn't feel right to me.
