Call us excitable but we always tend to get a little giddy when one of our favorite celebs is spotted out and about, wearing a suspicious gold band or diamond ring on that very special finger. We hear wedding bells and start envisioning bridal gowns before the engagement announcement even hits newsstands. So when we noticed Kate Mara flaunting a dainty, diamond-encrusted band on her left ring finger, we couldn't help but speculate about her ongoing relationship with boyfriend Jamie Bell. What does this mean?! Did he pop the question?! Can we go dress shopping with you, Kate?! Well, our questions were (thankfully) answered when Mara addressed those engagement rumors during Paris Fashion Week.
When the House of Cards actress and Fantastic Four actor hit the streets of Paris for this season's Fashion Week, it was hard to miss the glided gold ring she was toting. It was an unfussy, delicate design, but it was on that finger, after all! Embellished with tiny diamonds, the look was simplistic chic and reporters couldn't help but question the piece when the couple attended the H&M Studio show Wednesday night.
So? What's the verdict? Are these sweethearts heading down the aisle in the near future? According to E! News, who spoke Mara and Bell at the fashion event, the answer is sadly a no for now. And considering the fact that the couple has been dating less than a year — they were first spotted out together last summer, promoting Bell's Fantastic Four blockbuster — and how hush-hush these two tend to keep their romance, we can't say we're too surprised.

But, hey, you can't really get more romantic than the City of Lights for a surprise proposal! Hint, hint, Jamie! "We just came for H&M.," reassured Mara. "I'm here with Jamie and also Johnny, my stylist, and we're having fun." Whatever you say, Kate, whatever you say...
