Jenna Dewan Steps Out Without Her Wedding Ring in Los Angeles -- See the Pic

By

Jenna Dewan stepped out in Los Angeles on Saturday, and the actress was noticeably not wearing her wedding ring.

Less than a week after Dewan and ex Channing Tatum announced that they had "chosen to separate as a couple" after eight years of marriage, the 37-year-old World of Dance host headed out for a day of shopping in Chinatown.

Dewan rocked a classy-casual, mid-length denim spaghetti strap dress, some black, strappy heels and a pair of dark aviator sunglasses, as well as a delicate gold necklace. However, she was entirely sans ring as she perused the shops and purchased various souvenirs.

This appears to be the first time Dewan has been seen publicly without the band.

Just hours before the celebrity couple released a joint statement on April 2, addressing their decision to call it quits, Dewan was spotted out and about with her wedding ring clearly visible. The model wore her diamond encrusted band to her yoga class.

She was also photographed wearing both her sparkling engagement ring and wedding band on the red carpet at the iHeartRadio Music Awards on March 11.

The couple announced their split in a post on Instagram, writing, "First off, it feels odd that we have to share this kind of thing with everyone, but it’s a consequence of the lives we’ve chosen to lead, which we also happen to be deeply grateful for. We’re living in an incredible moment in time, but it’s also a time where truth can easily get distorted into 'alternative facts.' So we want to share the truth so you know that if you didn’t read it here then it’s most certainly fiction."

The statement explained that they "lovingly" decided to break-up and that "Absolutely nothing has changed about how much we love one another, but love is a beautiful adventure that is taking us on different paths for now."

Tatum and Dewan met in 2006 while filming the dance drama Step Up and began dating soon after. They tied the knot on July 11, 2009, with a gorgeous ceremony at Church Estates Vineyards in Malibu, California, and welcomed their daughter on May 31, 2013.

In February, Dewan opened up to Health magazine and said that her marriage to the Magic Mike star wasn't "perfect" and that there are days where they "don't really like each other."

"When people say, 'You guys have such a perfect life,' I want to scream and tell them, 'No one's perfect,'" she shared. I think there are such things as great fits. It is a great fit as long as you are growing together, and I think up until this point we've really grown together. Even if one starts to grow, the other catches up and vice versa."

"But I think a couple needs to be conscious and to want to do the work and be willing to look at the parts of you that need work," she continued. "Both of us have been pretty aware and willing to do that. We’ve always had the same values."

A source recently told ET that the former flames had put in the effort to make their marriage work but ultimately couldn't. According to the source, Tatum has not been in production on any films for more than a year because he wanted to spend time with Dewan and their daughter.
