Are you done staring at Ashley Tisdale’s new sparkler? Have you pinned it to your “Someday” Pinterest board? Good. Now, let’s talk about it.

The actress debuted the mini planet orbiting her ring finger at the InStyle summer soiree in L.A. Wednesday night. We have to admit we were expecting something funky, unique and even a little bit out-there (maybe we’re just used to all the unique engagement rings stars are wearing lately). But the Tiz surprised us, because the bling is pretty traditional.

Traditional: yes. Understated: not at all. The ring features what appears to be a mega-carat cushion-cut diamond … surrounded by a halo of small diamonds on a platinum band … covered in diamonds. And if you look closely, you’ll notice that she seems to be teaming her engagement bling with another ring, a simple gold band.

So, who’s responsible for this stunner? Annie Automatic musician Christopher French, who proposed to the 28-year-old star (after less than a year of dating) on top of the Empire State Building in N.Y.C. She shared the big news with fans, Tweeting, “Best night of my life. We’re on top of the world.”

Earlier this year, Tisdale described her type as “the dark, mysterious bad boy” and said she’s “definitely old-school when it comes to dating.” (Her previous two-year relationship with music video director Scott Speer ended in December 2011.)

Tell us: What do you think of Ashley’s new bling? (And don’t forget to share snaps of your engagement rings here!)

It appears to be the craze in wholeywood right now THE ENGAGEMENT RING!!! along with how many dresses to wear at the over the top WEDDING to have along with wanting to get pregnant regardless if its a longterm partner or getting married FIRST. I just want love to be forever married first then baby so no sex b4 marriage so it does not happen and self control is the only thing that’s gonna manage that and the world even though I want everyone to be happy and fulfilled is so out of control that’s why there are so many MORE problems today. Pray for love and self control! Congrats Ashley for for foever love and family!

It’s cute,I guess. Another platinum and diamond ring. Meh. I would have thought an unusual setting and colored gems would be more her. The ring looks a little big in that top picture. Oh congrats to them as well.

I don’t really like or know much about her but congrats. And that’s a gorgeous ring

I think these gigantic celebrity rings are super tacky. I loved Alexis Bledel’s engagement ring. It’s smaller, unique and doesn’t look like it might have popped out of a toy machine.

Happy for anyone who is getting married, BUT, kinda tired of that ring style…even though it’s pretty, EVERYONE has it.
