Zoë Saldana may want to keep her marriage (to ponytailed hottie Marco Perego) under-the-radar, but she’s going to have a hard time doing the same with her engagement ring. She’s worn her new sparkler on the street, but kept to her simple wedding band on red carpets, meaning we haven’t been able to get a good look at her new bling — until now.
At the LACMA gala, the star accented her super-sexy sheer Gucci gown with her engagement ring from Perego. Glimpses of the jewelry in paparazzi photos meant we knew it was emerald (and pretty sizable), but it’s even more jaw-dropping than we figured. Flanking the giant center stone, a pear-shaped emerald, are two smaller diamonds, and the halo surrounding the emerald as well as thin band both appear to have diamonds embedded as well.
We had a feeling the perpetually stylish star would have a ring that really stood apart from the rest, and despite the long wait (from her July wedding) to get a good look, we definitely were not disappointed. What do you think of her mega-watt sparkler? Do you have a colored-stone engagement ring, or would you want one?
