Kerry Washington‘s wedding may have been secret, but there’s no way to keep her beautiful new wedding ring under wraps.

At the ABC TCA party representing her hit show Scandal, the star displayed her new bling with a minimum of fanfare — but it was hard not to notice the sparkle coming off her left hand.

The ring reflects her “simple and sweet” wedding ceremony to San Francisco 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha in that she’s not rocking a 17-carat canary diamond like many of her peers in Hollywood. Still, the striking style has plenty of pizzazz, as it appears to be channel-set with diamonds on all sides.

Below the diamond number, Washington wears a thin yellow-gold band, which may be the ring she exchanged with Asomugha on their wedding day — though she remains tight-lipped about the details, so we can only speculate.
