When jokester and Jackass star Johnny Knoxville wed longtime girlfriend, Naomi Nelson, last Friday in Los Angeles, he did it with some truly unique bling. According to Los Angeles-based jeweler Larry Platt of Platt Boutique Jewelry, the bride came in about a week-and-a-half before the nuptials searching for a “one-of-a-kind, personal piece.” Nelson ultimately ended up choosing a delicate 2.50-carat, Edwardian antique ring with a pierced open-work design, circa 1910-1915. “When I took it out to show her I could tell she felt an immediate connection with it,” Platt tells PEOPLE. “She left that day with a picture of the ring and returned the following Thursday with Johnny,” — only one day before the wedding! And while the ornate piece may not be a traditional engagement ring, what better way to cement a union than with a personal, one-of-a-kind stunner? Tell us: What do you think of Naomi’s engagement ring? –Hana Choi; reporting by Jessica Wedemeyer
