As soon as word broke that George Clooney was engaged to British attorney Amal Alamuddin, we knew two things for certain. First: Our hearts are broken that George is off the market. Second: Amal’s engagement ring is undoubtedly gorgeous.
And as it turns out, we were right! People got a sneak peek at Amal’s brand new sparkler, and now that we’ve seen it, we’re practically blind.
George and his new fiance hit the town in Santa Barbara, California with friends Cindy Crawford and her husband, Rande Gerber, to celebrate Rande’s birthday, which is where Amal showed off her ring for the first time. Check out the ring here!
Now that we’ve seen the ring, here are the details: The emerald-cut diamond, which is estimated at a whopping 7-carats, features a platinum setting with two tapered baguettes. And to make an already special ring even more unique? George helped design it himself.
Amal’s colleagues first confirmed their engagement on Monday, putting the rumors that began over the weekend to rest. This will be George’s second marriage after divorcing Talia Balsam in 1993. That’s right: He’s been a bachelor for more than a decade!
Congratulations, George and Amal! May your future together be as bright as Amal’s new ring.
