After a year of quietly dating, Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds surprised fans in 2012 when they got married in a secret ceremony. Since the two never made any formal announcements about their engagement, it wasn’t surprising that Lively never posted a close-up shot of her engagement ring on social media. Still, it’s impossible to ignore it: Lively’s engagement ring is so gorgeous that it stands out at events no matter what else she’s wearing. 

Simple yet show-stopping, Lively’s engagement ring features a solitaire-set oval pink diamond in a light blush shade. Pink diamonds are thought of as some of the rarest colored diamonds in the world, which only makes her ring seem more special. The rose gold band matches the stone perfectly and is covered in more tiny sparkling diamonds. The Zoe Report estimates that Lively’s ring comes in at a whopping 12 carats, which explains why it’s always the center of attention. The ring is estimated to cost around $2 million.

Reynolds worked with Lively’s friend and favorite jeweler, Lorraine Schwartz, to design the piece—and he didn’t ask his wife for any help picking it out. Lively told British Vogue that this is one of the reasons the engagement ring is her favorite thing she owns, saying, “My most treasured possession is my engagement ring by my dear friend Lorraine Schwartz, because of the love and meaning it symbolizes. No, I didn’t have any hand in its design—I married a gentleman.”  Schwartz also designed the couple's wedding bands.

Lively definitely isn’t the only one who loves her ring: Engage Studio cofounder Ji Song once told Popsugar that Lively’s ring is the most requested celebrity ring from their customers, which he believes can be attributed to the fact that “it has a lot of intricate details.” 

With a ring like that, you have to assume that the proposal was equally extravagant. Unfortunately, though, we don’t know the details, as Lively and Reynolds have never publicly talked about that moment in their lives. And we only know a little about the wedding, which has been a source of controversy: the two got married on a former slave plantation in Charleston, South Carolina, something Reynolds has said is "something we’ll always be deeply and unreservedly sorry.” 

If the former Gossip Girl star’s engagement ring has inspired you to go for a blush-colored diamond as well, here’s a look at some similar options (and don’t worry, they come in at less than $2 million!).
