Here's to the ones who dream—of über-unique engagement rings! La La Land director Damien Chazelle has popped the question and proposed to his girlfriend, now fiancé, Olivia Hamilton. The couple just announced their nuptial news via an Instagram engagement ring selfie, featuring Hamilton's brand new—and totally one of a kind—bridal bauble.

The couple revealed today on social media that they are set to wed, posting a seaside selfie shot of themselves on a romantic rocky inlet. Hamilton, who had a minor role in her hubby-to-be's hit film, is seen holding up her left hand, showing off the engagement ring on her finger as Chazelle plants a kiss on her cheek.

Chazelle and Hamilton aren't exactly strangers to public shoutouts. According to Us Weekly, Chazelle previously gushed over his bride-to-be while accepting his Critics Choice Award for La La Land last December. "This is a film about love, I think, more than anything," the director told the crowd. "So I have to thank the love of my life, Olivia Hamilton."

Hamilton returned the love by taking to her Instagram to write, "Congratulations to @lalalandon the critics choice wins. Incredible. So so so unbelievably proud of the film and this man."

Well, like the to-be groom's Oscar-winning film, we think this ring is worthy of an award of its very own! In her Instagram ring selfie, Hamilton is wearing a sparkler by jeweler Monique Pean, who is known for her cool-girl, open-band designs. This particular bauble looks to have two diamond stones set on an open gold band. We're obsessed.

Now that the question has been popped, our minds are already on Chazelle and Hamilton's upcoming wedding. Will Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, and John Legend make the guest list cut? Will there be a La La Land singalong at the reception? Will the bride and groom perform an elaborate choreographed number for their first dance à la Mia and Sebastian? Fingers crossed!
