You certainly don’t need to be a Spy Kid to detect Alexa Vega’s new engagement ring.

A week after confirming her engagement to Big Time Rush’s Carlos Pena to PEOPLE, the actress gave onlookers a glimpse of her brand-new sparkler as she walked through the L.A. airport.

After dropping some Instagram hints about their big news (Vega tagged one shirtless shot of Pena “Hello fiancé…,” while Pena showed off a peek at the ring), the actress had her new bling on full display, and it’s pretty major. It appears to be a princess-cut canary diamond surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds that also encircle the band.

This is Vega’s second engagement ring — the 25-year-old star also had a brief marriage to producer Sean Covel that ended in 2012. But the two seem to have parted on good terms — Vega retweeted Covel’s best wishes to the newly engaged couple, in which he said “May your days be happy, lives be long, and your children, somehow, be tall. ,-)”

Thoughts on the actress’s new bling? Would you want a colored diamond?
