Nikki’s engagement ring is finally here and it’s amazing! Instead of choosing a traditional diamond, Ian opted to propose to his lady love with a stunning sparkler that looks more like a cocktail ring. We’re obsessed!
Ian Somerhalder, 36, sure has good taste! Not only has he chosen the perfect woman, Nikki Reed, 26, but he’s also chosen the perfect engagement ring! Nikki’s flower-shaped diamond stunner is super unique, just like her — plus, it’s ginormous!

Have you ever seen anything so gorgeous? Nikki’s huge ring features one round center diamond surrounded by many smaller diamonds that come together to form a blinged-out cluster that looks like a flower. We’ve taken the liberty of including two very similar rings below.
This must have cost Ian a fortune, but we’re sure it was worth it to see the look on her face when he popped the big question! We reached out to jewelry expert, Shari Fabrikant of Robert Fabrikant Inc. in NYC, who told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY, “Each stone is a nice size. The ring probably has approximately 6- to 8- carat diamonds. The value could be upwards of $50,000 retail.”
Nikki’s ring has a very vintage vibe and while we can’t be certain that it’s an antique, we do know one thing!
“Vintage is in! This ring shows a great sense of individuality,” Shari explains. “Vintage cluster rings have been popular since Victorian times. It is great to have something so different. Really beautiful!”
Shari adds of Nikki’s ring, “It is a yellow and white gold cluster style ring. It is a design of several large round stones to create a floral effect. The ring is a vintage style, one that has been popular for at least 100 years. The stones look to be excellent quality and are quite sparkly! This is a very unique ring and very, very cool!”
Nikki showed off her ring for the first time when she and Ian stepped out in Los Angeles on Feb. 2.
The adorable couple were caught mid-kiss by a People magazine photog who was definitely in the right place at the right time. They look so happy together!

Nikki and Ian are clearly so in love and we can’t wait for their big day! The couple have reportedly set a June date, but even though they won’t hit the altar for months, they’re already in the honeymoon phase.
Nikki was recently gifted a trip to Aruba at the Sundance Film Festival, according to Life & Style, and she’s planning to use it to whisk Ian away on a romantic getaway!
“She kept making sure the trip was for two, because she wanted a getaway with her future husband,” a source told the mag. “She said they’d never been on vacation together, and this was a perfect first place to go!”
