Kat Von D and Jesse James may not look like the most traditional couple at first glance, but when it came time to pick out an engagement ring, it was a classically elegant style that won out. The newly-engaged L.A. Ink star hit the 16th Annual Los Angeles Art Show Opening Night Premiere Party held at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Wednesday night, showing off her sparkler. The gorgeous ring is the creation of star-favorite jeweler Neil Lane, who has recently created engagement rings for everyone from Nicole Richie to Jessica Simpson. Lane describes it as a four-carat-plus platinum and diamond ring from his archival collection, adding, “It’s a beautiful ring set with a central round diamond in the middle with smaller surrounding diamonds for an overall dome shape. It has a delicate filigree pattern with very pretty scroll-work.” –reporting by Elizabeth Leonard

Why can’t men ever be alone?

CONGRATS! Im so happy for the both of them, Kat is so beautiful and i wish her the best..

I thought she didn’t believe in marriage or having children… Well, Jesse James has kids, so she’s going to be a step mother.
I guess I’m skeptical.

Nice ring but you really can’t see it with all of those tatoos on her fingers.

Cindy on

you cant even see it due to the overload of ink on her hand!

My opinion is Lane is overrated. Yah…the rings are lovely but is he seriously the only ring designer out there that is capable. In fact, I think when someone has a big name like that and knows they are going to get repeat customers they tend to not try as hard. I find all the rings look the same these days. In saying that, I really like this ring…but not for an engagement, in my opinion. I wish more celebrities would be a little more original…Neil Lane…the thing to do!

As for Von D and James – not a fan, never was and couldn’t figure out how someone as lovely as Bullock could not see that long before the scandal he has a huge ego. Don’t buy his tears, or his love for Von D. They are definitely better suited, not because of how they look because people can look mismatched and it can work out fine, but because neither of them are particularly loyal, or have much depth. Best of luck to them.

If Jesse wanted this engagement/marriage to work he would move right back to Ca.What’s the expression:When the Kat’s away the rodent will play? Hmm

Does anyone know why she wears a wig?

Hey everyone, why does everyone hate on Kat? Maybe just maybe Jesse and Sandra should never have been together in the first place. Yea, he said some things like I want to win her back, then we saw him with kat right away, but I’m sure Sandra new his lifestyle when she married him. Kat is a MUCH better match for Jesse. I wish them luck. And no ones relationship is certain.
