Ring to Reveal: When Stars Let Their Bling Speak for Them
ADAM BRODY: TWO DAYS
We never actually saw his girl Leighton Meester's engagement ring; it was the former O.C. star who quietly spilled the beans about his nuptials while posing for a fan photo at LAX on Feb. 18 and prominently displaying a wedding band. It was still there the next day on his trip to the gym, and on Feb. 20, PEOPLE confirmed that he and the Gossip Girl actress tied the knot in a "super intimate, under-wraps wedding" a few weeks earlier.
HALLE BERRY: 2 MONTHS
The actress caused a stir in January 2012 when she started stepping out with an emerald-and-gold ring on that finger. Though a jeweler claimed the bauble was in fact an engagement ring, it was not confirmed until that March, when now-husband Olivier Martinez told The Miami Herald, "Yes, of course it's true," and clarified that the ring was actually designed by his Paris neighbor, Robert Mazlo.
KELLY ROWLAND: 3 WEEKS
After offering a sneak peek of her bling in a friend's Instagram video, Rowland flashed her hefty-sized diamond while out and about in November 2013. Though rumors swirled, the singer stayed mum – until three weeks later, when she opened up about the happy news in an interview with The Queen Latifah Show. "He put a ring on it," she said of her manager beau, Tim Witherspoon. "He asked me first on Skype … it was just that simple to say yes."
AMBER HEARD: 4 DAYS
Blink and you'll miss it! Heard was snapped attempting to hide an impressive sparkler while exiting an L.A. restaurant on Jan. 17. While she and Johnny Depp have never spoken publicly about their relationship, the sighting caused the pair to confirm the obvious: "They couldn't be happier to be engaged and excited to share the rest of their lives together," a source told PEOPLE.
ANGELINA JOLIE: 2 DAYS
It's hard to keep a secret for long when you're Brad and Angelina. Shortly after an April 11, 2012, photo of Jolie sporting a serious rock from jeweler Robert Procop gained traction two days later, news was out that she and longtime partner Brad Pitt were finally headed down the aisle. "It is a promise for the future and their kids are very happy," the actor's rep told PEOPLE.
SCARLETT JOHANSSON: 1 DAY
Given her statement necklace and cleavage-baring gown, it could've been easy to miss Johansson's newest accessory at the Venice Film Festival: an engagement ring. A day after she hit the Sept. 3, 2013, red carpet sporting the new bauble, a rep for the actress confirmed she's set to wed French journalist Romain Dauriac. The news came seven months after the Her star first sparked rumors of an impending wedding by wearing a pear-shaped diamond ring.
ROBIN WRIGHT: HOURS
A photograph is worth a thousand words, or in the case of Wright and beau Ben Foster, just three: They're getting married! The House of Cards actress debuted her ring on the evening of Jan. 10 at the opening of the Diane von Furstenberg "Journey of a Dress" exhibition in L.A. The next morning, her rep revealed the couple's plans to marry.
