The couple announced their shock separation on Thursday after just two-and-a-half years of marriage.

Now Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux will have to figure out how to split their assets and move on with their lives.

However, it seems one very blingy asset that won't be part of the calculation is the stunning eight-carat, emerald-cut diamond engagement ring that Justin gave her, said to be worth $500,000.

The stars likely drew up pre-nups before they wed in on August 5, 2015, at her Los Angeles mansion.

But that won't cover the ring that the 49-year-old's beau, 46, gave her on August 10, 2012, L.A.-based attorney and certified family law specialist David Glass told People on Tuesday.

'The engagement ring pre-dates the marriage, and therefore is Jennifer’s separate property regardless of whether it is mentioned in the prenuptial agreement,' he said.

The Friends star will not have to give back the eight-carat, emerald-cut diamond engagement ring, said to be worth $500,000, according to legal expert David Glass

'As long as the parties get married, then the recipient keeps the engagement ring.'

As for the rest of their assets, the Friend star is believed to have kept her $21 million L.A. mansion in her name.

Justin, who co-stars in HBO's The Leftovers, owns an apartment in New York City which he bought for $600,00 in the early 2000s and spent $1 million renovating in 2015.

Meanwhile, Jennifer's total worth is estimated by Forbes at $200 million, far more than Justin's.

'It’s likely that they had a prenuptial agreement that preserved the separate property value of any pre-existing, premarital assets and the increase in value of those assets,' David Glass said.

When it comes to the rest of their joint property, Glass told People the only items up for division would be things like joint bank accounts and any property they bought together.

Their last big event together was in July.
