MANILA, Philippines -- With the phenomenal success of her hit daytime series "Be Careful With My Heart," actress Jodi Sta. Maria rewarded herself with a major purchase.

On Wednesday, Sta, Maria posted a photo on her Instagram account of what appears to be a diamond ring.

But in her official Twitter account, Sta. Maria stressed that she bought the ring as a gift to herself.

"Hold your horses tweeps! The ring is my gift to myself. :) Rewarding myself for all my hard work :)," the actress tweeted.

Sta. Maria had to make a clarification amid speculations that the ring might have been given by boyfriend Jolo Revilla as an engagement present.

Revilla has publicly credited Sta. Maria for bringing "light" into his life, while the actress, who was initially coy about the aspiring politician, is more open about to being seen hand-in-hand with the son of Senator Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.

Sta. Maria recently campaigned for the vice-gubernatorial candidate in Imus, Cavite.

Rumors romantically linking Sta. Maria and the younger Revilla surfaced in September last year and the "Be Careful With My Heart" star has since referred to actor-politician as her "special someone."
