Many fans of Schapelle Corby are wondering if she is preparing to walk down the aisle.

The convicted drug smuggler, who is currently celebrating her 47th birthday in Paris, caused a stir on Wednesday when an attentive fan spotted a glittering ring on her left hand.

In the photo posted on Instagram, Schapelle looks like a thoroughly stylish fashionista as she poses in front of the Eiffel Tower wearing a beret and resting her jeweled hand on her leg.

“Happy birthday to me #27… oops #47,” she wrote in the caption.

It didn’t take long for Schapelle’s followers to flood the post and wedding bells could be heard all the way from the city of love.

“Is that an engagement ring on your finger, haha?” they asked after spotting the ring.

However, it seems that not everything is as it seems.

Upon closer inspection, it is clear that the image is “flipped” and that she is actually wearing the eye-catching ring on her right hand.

A clear indication that the image has been “mirrored” is that the Olympic rings on the Eiffel Tower in the background of the photo are upside down.

In photography, a “mirrored” image is one in which the right and left are actually swapped – as if you were looking at it in a mirror.

Previously, Kyle Sandilands recently expressed his theory about where Schapelle Corby’s drug-filled boogie board bag really came from, following her infamous arrest at Bali airport almost 20 years ago.

Schapelle was sentenced to nine years in prison for attempting to smuggle cannabis into Indonesia.

She was arrested at Bali airport in October 2004. Her boogie board bag contained 4.2 kg of cannabis wrapped in plastic.

Schapelle has always maintained her innocence, and her lawyers have argued that she became a drug courier unintentionally, suggesting that porters had placed the drugs in her bag.

Radio shock host Kyle, 53, spoke about her detention on the Kyle and Jackie O Show on Wednesday morning.

He assumed that the smugglers had forgotten to take the cannabis out of their bags after their onward flight from Brisbane to Sydney, which meant that it had accidentally travelled on to Bali.

“I think they forgot something that was supposed to be transported from Brisbane to Sydney. They missed it and it was diverted to Bali,” he said.

Schapelle has built a new life for herself since being released from an Indonesian prison in 2014 after being convicted of drug smuggling and now makes her living as a successful watchmaker

His co-host Jackie “O” Henderson also expressed her condolences to Schapelle and claimed that she did not deserve the nine-year prison sentence.

“She almost freaked out about it. Anyway, even if she did it, I don’t think she deserved what she went through,” argued Jackie, 49.

Schapelle has built a new life for herself since her release from an Indonesian prison in 2014 and now earns her living as a successful watchmaker.

Earlier this year, she promoted some of her colorful watches, which typically retail for around $220, to her 162,000 followers.
