As her estranged husband Jon Gosselin gallivants around New York City and the Hamptons with other women, Kate Gosselin has taken a more subtle step toward a new life: She’s removed her wedding band, people.com reports.

The reality star was photographed Friday for the first time without her ring during a coffee run near her Pennsylvania home.

Just last month, removing the ring seemed like a symbolic gesture that she was not yet ready to make. “I haven’t taken off my ring,” she told People at the time. “It would devastate my kids. It’s not necessary. I was looking at it while I was in the shower this morning, and I thought, I’m not taking it off. I’m not ready.”

Ready or not, Jon has made it clear he’s prepared to move ahead into single life after a decade of marriage. He went to Saint-Tropez with his new 22-year-old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, rented a bachelor pad in Manhattan, and then holed up at Michael Lohan’s house in Long Island with a tabloid reporter.
