While Internet reports that Maria Shriver is wearing a suspicious ring on that finger fueled rumors of a possible reconciliation with husband Arnold Schwarzenegger, PEOPLE has learned there's a different explanation.
The bling seen on Shriver's left hand is actually her late mother's engagement ring. Shriver, who was extremely close her mom, has been wearing the ring since Eunice Shriver's death in August 2009.
As for rumors that Shriver is having second thoughts about divorcing Schwarzenegger, a source close to the couple denies it.
"The reports of a reconciliation are not true," says the source.

Maria Shriver and Arnold Schwarzenegger have come together for another major occasion since the journalist filed for divorce from her husband in July.
A source close to the family tells PEOPLE the two spent Christmas together with their children at their home in Brentwood, Calif., and they "had a really nice time" over the holiday.
According to the source, they also attended the Los Angeles Lakers' season opener game at the Staples Center in the afternoon.
Spending time together, however, isn't unprecedented for the two.
Since their split, Shriver, 56, was by her ex's side on his 64th birthday in July.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is ready to tell his story.
The actor and former California governor is writing an autobiography that will touch upon his recent breakup with Maria Shriver while also covering his childhood in Austria and his careers as a bodybuilder, action star and politician.
"This book will not be a tell-all," a source tells PEOPLE.
Schwarzenegger, 64, will work on the book, tentatively titled Total Recall: My Unbelievably True Life Story, in between shooting scenes for his next film The Expendables 2, with Sylvester Stallone.

It's been a difficult year for Maria Shriver, but she's had plenty of support from friends and family – no more so than this weekend.
California's former first lady, who filed for divorce this summer from Arnold Schwarzenegger, joined her brother Anthony and her children at a charity bicycle race Saturday that also served as an emotional pick-me-up.
“I appreciate your support, particularly this year, for sticking with me,” Shriver, 55, told a crowd at a barbecue Saturday at Hearst Castle as part of the 100-mile race.

Though both of Katherine Schwarzenegger's parents attended the Fashion's Night Out event she hosted in Los Angeles Thursday, it was clearly Mother's Day for the eldest child of estranged spouses Arnold Schwarzenegger and Maria Shriver.
"I have the best mother in the whole entire world," Katherine, 21, told PEOPLE. "I could not have asked for a better mom. She supports me in everything that I do. She's always there for me, and we're, like, inseparable."
She added: "I always say we talk way too much. … I actually tell her everything. I should probably stop doing that! Because we're just so close."
