Are Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez engaged? Or not so much?

Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez

So about Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez getting engaged -- the story's not quite that simple.

It was reported Wednesday that Berry, who'd been spotted wearing an emerald-and-diamond bauble on her left-hand ring finger after swearing years ago she'd never again wed, got engaged to her "Dark Tide" costar over the holidays. A rep for jeweler Gurhan then told People mm hmm, it's an engagement ring.

Cut to Thursday and "sources close to the couple" were telling TMZ that although the ring was a gift from him to her, and although the relationship was a "committed" one, and although marriage hadn't been ruled out, that rock was not indicative of an engagement.

Turn the page to Friday and a rep for the jeweler is buzzing People with the word that, hey, we can't even say for sure the ring is a Gurhan design.

So maybe Berry was for real in 2004 when she told Oprah Winfrey, "I will never marry again. I mean it with every bone in my body."

Now who's going to break it to Martinez's ex, Kylie Minogue?
