Simpson wears wedding ring
13:30 21 April 2006
Jessica Simpson is wearing her wedding ring again - but insists she isn't back with estranged husband, Nick Lachey.
The 'Newlyweds' stars, who are in the middle of divorce proceedings, split last year after three years of marriage.
Jessica has now been spotted wearing her wedding band on a chain round her neck.
A friend of the singer-turned-actress insists the blonde has decided to wear it again to remind herself of the happy times the couple shared.
The pal told America's People magazine: "You can still move on and have the memories.
"Nick will always be an important part of her life."
The ring is accompanied by two crosses, one that was given to Jessica by her parents, while the other matches a crucifix that both her sister, Ashlee, and mother, Tina, wear.
A source close the 'Dukes Of Hazzard' star also revealed the jewellery represents "a combination of things that are important to her."
Meanwhile, Lachey, 32, has revealed how he was shocked when she called time on their relationship.
The former 98 Degrees singer said: "I was blindsided when she turned to me after dinner one night last November and said, 'I think I want a divorce.'
"I basically said, 'Please, let's sleep on it', but when we woke up the next day she was still sure."
