We’re already starting to pick out wedding dresses for our Celeb Style Council member, but let’s talk about that rock first. This is the first time Reed has been seen with her (frankly, enormous!) ring. And she’s not wearing a classic, cushion-cut bauble. The sparkler is very unique featuring what looks like a round center diamond surrounded by smaller round diamonds for an antique, floral-cluster vibe. And of course Reed made sure to get the perfect pale-pink mani for her new bling’s big debut. Get an up-close look below.

First spotted together in July 2014, their relationship has been a whirlwind; just six months later, Somerhalder, 36, popped the question in January, PEOPLE confirmed.

Reed was previously married to American Idol alum Paul McDonald; their split was announced in March, and their divorce was finalized in early January. For his part, Somerhalder dated his Vampire Diaries costar Nina Dobrev for several years before splitting in May 2013.

“We have such an amazing future ahead of us,” Reed previously revealed to PEOPLE. “Anything we put our minds to will become a reality. I’m just excited for all those possibilities.”

While big, I don’t think it’s pretty. It looks tacky and cheap.

WOW! That picture is SO natural and not staged at all

So they got engaged for a second time?
Because your previous exclusive featured a different ring, guys.

Still on the fence with these two, neither has had time to get over their last relays. Seems to me they are rushing into marriage, neither has been alone for long, Nikki since June of last year, and Ian since late 2013. Just don’t see this lasting long, both seem like they are in love with being in love, instead of for the right reasons.

In regards to Nikki Reeds dress she should get her pick of the litter first but I’d see her in an aline fitted lace with a silk silhouette for extreme attention for her features they do look quite adorable as a couple and glad they found happiness together. Don’t mind the size of the ring it’s the most special gift someone will give you shouldn’t it be exquisite

Love how this girl uses people to get ahead. First paul and now Ian. Her career is going nowhere and she needs someone to latch on to. How wonderfully staged all these photos look.

Wow! I love her ring! I think it is so unusual but so beautiful. Ian obviously knows that she likes down-to-earth-flowery kind of things. I bet they aren’t blood diamonds either! They are such a great power-couple! Love the ring and Love them both!

It’s cute and feminine. I think they make a lovely couple.
