Newsies alum Lohr, 40, proposed to the Frozen star, 45, with an engagement ring designed by Brilliant Earth. The jeweler provided specific details about the piece in a release to The Knot and other outlets on Friday.
Menzel’s fiance got down on one knee with a vintage, platinum-diamond baguette ring that features an “ethically-sourced, beyond conflict-free” 2-carat diamond. The star’s band includes a hand-engraved floral pattern.
The Wicked powerhouse, 45, and her future husband, 40, made their first, joint-red carpet appearance last April at the White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. The couple—longtime friends after starring together in the film adaptation of Rent—purchased a home together several months later in Encino, California.
This is the second marriage for Menzel, who was previously married to Taye Diggs for 10 years. The couple separated in December 2013, and share a 7-year-old son named Walker.
