How Do You Feel About Ashlee Simpson's Over-the-Top Engagement Ring?

Getty ImagesIn case you haven't heard: The youngest Simpson sister is getting married too. Yep, Ashlee Simpson is getting hitched to Diana Ross' son Evan, and she has a giant ring to prove it.

Simpson gave the world a first glimpse of her new bling in a Twitter picture Monday, but it had a hazy filter so it was a little hard to see just how ridiculous it is. Today, there's a very clear picture of the diamonds (and rubies).

The ring is definitely unique, there's no doubt about that. And it was a labor of love. Ross went to jeweler to the stars Neil Lane for the piece. "He took it very seriously and it was a wonderfully intense process," Lane told People. "Evan was really, really sweet and he was looking for something beautiful, a unique ring that said everything: love, romance, beauty, character. He didn’t want anything traditional." 

It also had to be expensive. It's a five-carat platinum and gold ring and also has 140 white diamonds and small ruby gemstone accents.
