The precious stone has a special meaning for the couple: Emeralds originate in Colombia where Ruben is from.

The ring is a natural Colombian emerald on a platinum art-deco inspired setting for a vintage feel, which is Hilary’s favorite, according to her rep. The piece was designed exclusively for Ruben and Hilary by Andrea Jaramillo from the Colombian-based jewelry brand Tres Almas. And she proudly wore her new bling in the stands at the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament in Indian Wells, California, on Sunday.

The couple also stepped out Saturday night post engagement news, where Swank paired her sparkler with a navy and white striped dress by Tory Sport and ankle-strap sandals from the brand.

Congrats to them both, but “longtime love”? It makes it sounds like they’ve been together for a decade or at least more than a couple of years.

It must be hard to be a celebrity. One guy buys his future wife a big rock, and the rest have to keep up or be shamed. lol

Beautiful and unique, just like her! Love the colored gemstones making engagement rings original and special!

Though I have to say, referring to them as “longtime loves” when they’ve been together a couple years (maybe) is kinda silly. I hate this new trend in celebrity reporting. If they’ve been together longer than 6 months, they’re not “long time loves”. Make it 5+ YEARS…lol
