Kelly Clarkson not allowed to take Austen's ring

London, Sep 28 : American singer Kelly Clarkson, who had purchased a ring that once belonged to English novelist Jane Austen in a bid, will not be able to take it out of Britain as its export has been banned.


The ban was placed by the British culture ministry, which decided it had too much historical significance.

The ring will now be placed in the Jane Austen House Museum in Britain for good.

"The export licensing system provides us with a 'last chance' to save treasures like these for the nation so they can be enjoyed by all of us," contactmusic.com quoted Culture Minister Ed Vaizey as saying.

The actress took the news sportingly.

"The ring is a beautiful national treasure and I am happy to know that so many Jane Austen fans will get to see it," she said.
