What a gem! For his surprise proposal on American Idol Wednesday night, Ace Young selected an 18-karat yellow gold, platinum and diamond engagement ring to present to longtime girlfriend Diana DeGarmo.

The David Webb sparkler, which features a 1-carat fancy yellow center stone, also boasts two side diamonds weighing .2 carats.

Young helped to design the ring, after hearing DeGarmo drop a hint. “A month ago, she said, ‘Gold needs to come back,'” Young told PEOPLE after Wednesday’s finale. “I was like, ‘I agree,’ so mental note. Her favorite thing is a sunflower and she loves yellow, so one of our dear friends [helped me] put together a ring that has a yellow diamond, a gold band and two smaller diamonds on the side that are clear, so it’s like a sunflower.”

The couple, who’ve been together for two years, met in the spring of 2010 when both signed on to costar in the Broadway revival of the musical Hair. DeGarmo appeared on Idol season three, while Young was on season five.

how does that look like a sunflower? apparently he doesn’t know what a sunflower looks like.

It doesn’t look like a sunflower to me either.

I love yellow diamonds and yellow gold but it’s not easy to put them together. A white diamond halo around the stone would boost it’s color significantly rather than it getting lost in a sea of somewhat dull yellow. Hopefully it looks better in person and the picture is just not reflective of it’s sparkle.

If she loves it and it makes her feel special, then it’s the very best ring of all though.

I love how they say his “long time girlfriend” and they have only been together 2 years. I guess that passes as longtime in Hollywood :)

It’s not my taste and I don’t really think it looks like a sunflower (wouldn’t it need black?) But, it sounds like he paid attention to the things she likes in designing it which is really sweet and most likely means she likes it.

Not impressed…..

Nowhere does he say it “looks like a sunflower.” He said, “…so it’s like a sunflower.” I’m guessing that nobody would want a ring that actually looks like a sunflower.

Today is my 21st wedding anniversary. I wish Diana and Ace all the love and best wishes for their engagement! Beautiful ring.
