What tops most girls to-do lists the minute they get engaged? Hitting the nail salon for the perfect mani to match their new bling, of course. Jenny McCarthy, who just announced her engagement to Donnie Wahlberg Wednesday, made sure her tips were freshly painted — though no nail art could distract us from that new mega-carat engagement ring sitting pretty on her left hand.

The View co-host shared her exciting news on air while showing off her sparkler to the other hosts. “It’s a yellow sapphire,” she said of the bauble, which looks to be 5-plus carats (if we had to guess) and is surrounded by a halo of diamonds. (Get an up-close look at the bauble — and her hot-pink Sally Hansen manicure — above.)

McCarthy couldn’t contain her excitement on set, jumping around as she flaunted her rock. Wahlberg — who proposed to his girlfriend of less than a year last weekend with the help of her son Evan — even made a surprise appearance to kiss his bride-to-be. But the couple isn’t in a rush to head down the aisle. “We don’t know yet,” she responded when pressed by her co-hosts about a wedding date.

While we wait for more answers (and imagine some gowns we’d like to see McCarthy wear — not to mention the New Kids On the Block set list that will inevitably be performed at their reception), we’re going to add the star to our celebrity wedding calendar, which is really starting to fill up — Kim Kardashian, Mila Kunis, Lauren Conrad, Olivia Wilde, Jamie Chung … the list goes on.

What do you think of McCarthy’s ring? Do you like her colorful stone, or are you a fan of the classic diamond? Share your thoughts below!

Congrats — she’s awesome. Love that she didn’t go with a standard diamond (they’re DISGUSTING by the way and overpriced). But alas, I’m intelligent and 80% of the females in this country are complete morons. Not surprised at some of the ignorant comments. You aren’t women – you’re little girls.

Glad she’s happy with it. I just prefer white diamonds for engagement rings. To me, when it’s any other color, it doesn’t look like an engagement ring. It just looks like a big ring.

Love the yellow ring! Diamonds are disgusting and overpriced for what they are. also, to the ladies trash talking – seriously? How completely sad are you? Get lives, please.

Ugh, product placement for everythîng these days. I hated how she referred to Jim carey as Evans dad on Oprah and probably at home. She hasn’t even been with this one a year. They may be married 5 or even 10 years but it’s not a forever relationship.

She is crazy. Give it less than 5 years. I agree with the porcupine comment above ewww
