Not to be outdone by her former husband Nick Lachey, Jessica Simpson announced her engagement to footballer Eric Johnson just a week after her ex-hubby revealed his engagement to Vanessa Minnillo. The couple, who have grabbed headlines with their PDA-filled globetrotting, have only been dating for six months but have decided to take the plunge and tie the knot. Jessica was spotted this weekend sporting her new sparkler at an event at Dillard’s and it appears that hubby number two really has outdone himself. A departure for the classic pear-shaped diamond that she received form Lachey, the new bauble is a vintage yellow-gold Neil Lane stunner. With a 4-carat oval-shaped ruby accentuated by 2-caret diamonds on either side, this is a rare find. Worth a reported $100,000, Johnson opted for the ruby rock as it is the bride-to-be’s birthstone and represents love. This is definitely a unique choice for her second trip down the aisle but we have to ask, do you think Jess’s ring will start a whole new ruby trend? Take our poll below!
