Supermodel extraordinaire Molly Sims may be best known for flashing her smile in ads for Cover Girl, and her other assets on the pages of the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issues, but it was an engagement ring she got spotted flashing over the weekend while out her new fiancé, producer Scott Stuber. The couple has been together for a year and a half and apparently she’s been waiting for the right one, because unbelievably, this will be wedding number one for the 38-year-old model/actress (Stuber is on number two).
The ring itself is a gorgeous Diane von Furstenberg creation that Sims’ soon-to-be hubby helped to create (he has apparently been working on it for several months with top designers at DVF). Unfortunately, Sims has reported only that she has no idea how big her brand new rock is, but the carat count has got to be pretty high. Not only is the central stone easily upwards of three carats (with what looks to be a cushion cut), but there are also the stones in the pave halo and those around the band to consider. It’s no Kardashian, but it certainly has some heft.
However, the ring pales in comparison to the actual proposal. He not only gave her a huge rock, which the starlet says she can’t stop looking at, but he also made the occasion even more special by flying her parents in to help them celebrate. Sims told reporters that they were waiting in the kitchen when she came downstairs after the proposal. Aww! Not only does this man have excellent taste in jewelry, he’s also a total sweetheart! Yup, he’s a keeper.
And Sims seems to be over the moon, gushing about how surprised she was and proclaiming that she is excited that she gets to keep the gorgeous rock. She may not be a spring chicken anymore, especially not in the world of fashion, but that doesn’t mean she can’t be a blushing bride. The only question now is: will the wedding be in Las Vegas?
