He put a ring on it — and now we're getting up close and personal! Ryan Phillippe's fiancé, Paulina Slagter, finally showed off her brand new engagement ring while the couple was ringing in 2016 in Miami. Were those New Year's Eve fireworks or just the sparkle off of that diamond stunner?
It was no secret in Tinsel Town that Phillippe was flipping over his gorgeous girlfriend. He even gushed over the law school beauty on Howard Stern's SiriusXM radio show, stating that that he was "not opposed" to walking down the aisle again (the actor was previously wed to his Cruel Intentions costar, Reese Witherspoon). "She's awesome," he said. "When people see her they have these judgments because she could be a model but she's about to graduate Stanford Law." And after the actor proposed on Christmas Day to Slagter, we've been positively dying for a peek at the rock! We finally caught a glimpse over the weekend when the to-be-wed twosome went out on the town and oh-so-subtlety flashed Slagter's new ring.
According to People, Phillippe worked with celebrity jeweler Neil Lane to find a ring just as his gorgeous fiancé. "He wanted it to be truly special — and he had a vision," Lane divulged of Ryan's ultra-special shopping trip. "He wanted a ring that was beautiful, elegant, and classic. We looked at dozens of rings but he kept coming back to this one and after a while he was certain that this was it!"
Ryan's perfect pick turned out to be a simply stunning sparkler — Lane's Classic Tulip Diamond Ring, featuring a round brilliant-cut diamond set in a platinum band and — wait for it — encircled with almost 200 pavé stones. Yup, you read that right. Even in the celebrity world, that's a whole lot of bling!

According to Lane, Phillippe fell in love with the romantic ring for it's "simplicity, elegance, and detail work... He thought it was perfect."
We couldn't agree more!
