Extra. Inset:Javier Mateo/Startraks

Model Behati Prinsloo can’t stop gushing about her engagement to rocker Adam Levine. And with good reason; did you see that gorgeous engagement ring on Extra?

And after we finished ogling it in person, we had to ask: Was Prinsloo, 24, surprised when the Maroon 5 frontman got down on bended knee to present her with the vintage 1930s sparkler? “You know, you have a feeling, but you don’t know,” the model told PEOPLE at a fragrance launch for Victoria by Victoria’s Secret (for which she’s the face) in NYC on Tuesday. “We’re just very excited to start a new chapter.”

She’s also excited to spend her big day with her nearest and dearest, including fellow model Coco Rocha — whose 2012 wedding Prinsloo photographed. “[Coco] is one of my best friends, so she will be front and center,” Prinsloo said. “When I was there at her wedding taking pictures, it was such a special moment seeing them together and I would love for her to share the same with me.”

But all that is well down the road; at the moment, Prinsloo is all about promoting the new fragrance, which she says “is very fresh and feminine but it’s sophisticated at the same time.” And she should know a little something about it; her groom-to-be just launched his first fragrance as well.

Tell us: What do you think of the model’s new bling?
