The Importance of Being Earnest

In Act 3, what did Cecily do and pretend Algernon did it?

Cecily wrote the letters by herself and she also bought the ring for her, but she pretend Algernon did it. Is this the answer?

This is essentially correct,

"On the 14th of February last. Worn out by your entire ignorance of my existence, I determined to end the matter one way or the other, and after a long struggle with myself I accepted you under this dear old tree here. The next day I bought this little ring in your name, and this is the little bangle with the true lover's knot I promised you always to wear."
