Christina Aguilera had a very romantic — and very sparkly — Valentine’s Day, when her love of three years, film producer Matt Rutler, proposed in Hawaii with an enormous, elaborate engagement ring, a photo of which Aguilera shared on Twitter Friday. “He asked and I said … ” she wrote, letting the sparkler do the talking for her.

For example: “The actual band weaves and intertwines [the] diamonds. Every connecting criss-cross symbolizes how their paths crossed … the ring narrows at the base [to] reflect how their bond continues to grow closer and stronger over time,” the source says, adding that some of the most special features of the ring aren’t visible to others. “There are nine special multi-color gemstones that you cannot see. They all symbolize something meaningful to the couple. Christina is very spiritual and having the stones touch her actual skin will emit positive energies surrounding her at all times. They represent things like love, protection and healing.”

As for the unique, vintage-feeling setting of the ring? Rutler was inspired by pieces he knew Aguilera already adored. “He took two of Christina’s favorite rings … to design something that incorporated [both designs] into one,” the source says. “Similar to both their lives coming together as one.”

We can’t wait to see what Rutler comes up with for their wedding bands! What do you think of Aguilera’s ring? Do you love the meaning behind it? Tell us in the comments!
