We couldn’t be happier for newly-engaged Mad Men couple Vincent Kartheiser and Alexis Bledel—though we’re not going to lie: We’re super excited that we’ve finally gotten a peek at the engagement ring!
We first caught a glimpse of Alexis’ sparkler at the L.A. premiere of her TV movie, Remembering Sunday, this past Wednesday. We adore the black and white Pamela Roland cut-out dress she wore to the event—but we’re even more taken with her ring! Here’s a closer look at it, courtesy of People:
The ring consists of an octagonal-shaped diamond, set it what looks like platinum (although it’s always possible that it could white gold or even silver). It’s simple yet elegant, and we’re absolutely loving the vintage vibe it gives off. “Vincent picked it out,” the actress gushed to Us Weekly. Excellent job, Vincent!
Somewhat hilariously, Vincent practiced his proposal on costars Elisabeth Moss, AKA Peggy Olsen, and Jessica “Megan Draper” Pare before popping the question to Alexis herself last month. “It was purely comedic,” Jessica told People last month, “but he was giving [Elisabeth] and I a facetious rendition of his planned proposal. We were like, ‘Great! Let’s do this one without cursing and yelling!’”
But it was all in good fun. Elisabeth added, “They are such a yin and yang. I’ve known Vinny for twelve years and Alexis is just the sweetest. I’ve never seen Vincent like this. It is really cool.”
No word on when the wedding will be yet, but we’re sure it’s going to be a good one. Congrats again to the happy couple!
