Jane Austen, A to Z: Kelly Clarkson


Kelly Clarkson forced to sell $250,000 ring to Jane Austen museum

The last post was about Janeites, fans of Jane Austen. Kelly Clarkson is a Janeite. (FYI: As far as I know, Kelly Clarkson fans are called Kellebrities.)

Did you guys know that Kelly Clarkson owned one of Jane Austen’s rings for a very brief time?

The United Kingdom wouldn’t let the ring leave the country. They enforced a temporary export ban since the ring is considered to be a national treasure.

While the export ban was in place, the Jane Austen’s House Museum raised the money to buy the ring from Clarkson.

She sold it to the museum. Clarkson really is a better person than most of us.

I could be the worst cook in America. My boyfriend tells his friends about my cooking disasters. I'm glad someone is amused. I like movies, music, comic books and corny jokes.

  1. The ring is beautiful! Didn’t know I was a Janeite and a Kellebrity. I love Jane Austen. I’ll be back to read through the posts after A-Z they look short and sweet, just as I like them. – Dragons & Spaceships
