Turns out, being “engaged to him” has some fun perks — including some gorgeous new jewelry!
Courteney Cox, 50, announced her engagement to Snow Patrol musician Johnny McDaid, 37, on Twitter Thursday. But the night before, Cox gave a clue that an announcement might be forthcoming when she flashed a glimpse at her new hardware while out on a date with her fiancé at Craig’s Restaurant in L.A.
She mostly kept her left hand entwined in McDaid’s, but when she went to drive away, a second ring was visible under the chunky silver band she always wears. It appeared to be a super-thin, delicate band with pavé diamonds set with a large emerald or princess-cut diamond (we’ve been studying photos all morning and can’t agree on a cut!). Walking into the restaurant, she appeared to be trying to keep the ring under wraps, but by the end of the night, her pretty sparkler was on full display.
The ring was created for her by longtime pal Jennifer Meyer (also the wife of Tobey Maguire). “I guess he liked it so he put a Jennifer Meyer ring on it!! Xo #Johnny💘Courteney #jennifermeyer #engagementring” Meyer tagged the above photo on her own Instagram.
Coincidentally, Cox and her BFF Jennifer Aniston are now planning weddings together — and though their rings couldn’t be more different, the two have similar styles and have fallen for rocker-esque younger guys, so we can’t wait to see how their big days turn out. And we’ll confess, we’re hoping for a reprise of this memorable Friends bridesmaid look.
