Eva Longoria and Jose Antonio Baston just announced their engagement with the exchanging of a kiss – and a ruby engagement ring – in the desserts of Dubai!
The 40-year-old former Desperate Housewives actress shared a photo of herself and Baston, 47, surrounded by sand dunes and standing among richly-colored red rugs and stacked pillows. The two are stealing a smooch in the image she posted on Instagram Sunday, December 13, where she offered up the news of their engagement.
Longoria not only revealed her ruby red ring bling by holding Baston’s face with her left hand as they kissed, she also confirmed that Baston proposed by captioning the photo, “Ummmm so this happened….#Engaged #Dubai #Happiness.” Longoria’s gorgeous ruby engagement ring matches the surrounding outdoor decor.
Simon G. gemologist, Elizabeth Woolf-Willis, tells The Knot, “Her ring is a classic halo style, with diamonds surrounding the center stone. The center ruby looks to be between 6-8 carats and a lovely deep red color.” Woolf-Willis adds, “The style is somewhat similar to Kate Middleton’s, but with a ruby center stone instead of a sapphire.”
