Before proposing to Alexis Bledel, her Mad Men costar (and now husband-to-be) Vincent Kartheiser once said, “Girls, as much as they are independent, want on a certain level to have certain things.” Well, if Bledel is one of those girls and one of those “certain things” for her was a big, stunning diamond ring, she definitely got what she wanted.

The actress, 31, showed off her dazzling octagonal-shaped diamond, set in what appears to be platinum, for the first time at the premiere of Remembering Sunday in Century City, Calif., Wednesday evening.

The ring has a vintage vibe to it, appropriate considering the couple got to know each other on the set of Mad Men. (Bledel played Beth Dawes, who has an affair with Kartheiser’s character Pete Campbell.)

She debuted her bling with a positively modern Pamella Roland black-and-ivory cutout dress.

It’s the first marriage for both, but it’s not the first time Kartheiser proposed. The actor, 33, admitted he practiced the proposal on costars Elisabeth Moss and Jessica Paré before popping the question on Bledel in March.

“It was purely comedic but he was giving [Elisabeth] and I a facetious rendition of his planned proposal,” Paré told PEOPLE. “We were like, ‘Great! Lets do this one without cursing and without yelling!'”

What do you think of Bledel’s bling?

I’m afraid for her. He treats women in real life much like his character does. He said he’s never been monogamous, and undermines women’s independence in a huge way. Prepared to be a disrespected housewife, Alexis.

Gina on

Tiny by Hollywood standards!

Octagon? How cool!

I have always thought she was a very special girl…seems she found a very special guy to appreciate her.

This is one of the better celeb engagement rings I’ve seen. It’s not too gaudy like most and is absolutely gorgeous!
