Emily Maynard announced her engagement to Tyler Johnson back on January 7, and things seem to be going blissfully for the 28-year-old Charlotte gal. But on April 21, she alarmed fans when she posted a picture of herself lounging with one of her many pets, minus a certain accessory: her famous stack of engagement rings!

"I wanted a stack of bands," she told GMA's Lara Spencer back in January. "I just wanted, like, gold bands, but he did a very good job. This is way more than I thought." The colorful rings often make an appearance in Emily’s Instagram feed, but they were noticeably absent in her recent share.

So, what happened? Is her fourth engagement already off? Not so fast. While Emily’s wristful of bangles stayed on for her naptime selfie, her rings were elsewhere — getting shined. Several fans asked Em about the whereabouts of her four jeweled baubles, especially since the Season 8 Bachelorette captioned the shot, “She’s over it.”

Clearly, she was referring to her pup, but she was quick to respond to fans’ worries, reassuring her followers, “I put it in the cleaner right before this pic!” We assume the jewelry lover/designer owns a fancy metal polishing machine; otherwise we don’t really know what “the cleaner” means.

Does that clear things up for you? Do you think something’s going on in Emily’s world, or is she just keeping things spiffy?
