Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne has been ordered to turn over an expensive piece of jewelry her estranged husband Tom Girardi purchased for her — allegedly with stolen money.

According to court documents obtained by Radar, the federal court judge presiding over the bankruptcy for Girardi’s law firm issued his ruling earlier today.

Last month, the trustee presiding over the Chapter 7 demanded the Bravo star hand over earrings that Girardi bought her back in 2007. Financial records allegedly show the once-respected lawyer used money from his client’s account to make the purchase.

Girardi is accused of running his law firm like a Ponzi scheme. Many former clients accuse him of owing millions.

His victims include orphans, widows and a fire burn victim. The trustee is trying to collect as much money as possible to pay back those owed money.

Last week, the trustee accused Jayne of refusing to comply with his request. She argued they had no right to take the jewelry from her. She then agreed to let a third party take possession but not the trustee.

On Tuesday, Jayne changed her tune and reached a deal to turn over the earrings to the trustee after days of backlash.

The agreement said the trustee had permission to hire an appraisal to determine the value of the earrings but was not to sell them.

Now, the judge has made it official and entered an order incorporating the deal Jayne and the trustee reached.

The order states Jayne has 5 days to turn over the diamond earrings. The RHOBH star is now expected to make her plea for why the jewelry should not be taken from her.

As Radar previously reported, Jayne has not only been catching heat over the earrings from fans but also from her costar Garcelle Beauvais.

On The Real, Garcelle and the other cohosts discussed the earring battle.

“I would give up the diamonds quickly,” she said. “There’s so much more she could do, even if she’s not guilty of knowing everything Tom [Girardi] was doing.
