Can’t stop, won’t stop! Country superstar Kacey Musgraves shared a new photo of her sparkling engagement ring on Tuesday, January 24, alongside an adorable message for her fiance, Ruston Kelly.

The “Follow Your Arrow” hitmaker, 28, posted a ring selfie with the words “happiest month ever” embellishing the post. “Thank you for showing up & showing me what a real man and real love is, @rustonkelly,” the singer captioned the image. “It’s somehow already been a month but I still can’t stop looking at my hand.”

Musgraves’ ring is one of the most popular designs of the moment. According to The Knot 2015 Jewelry and Engagement Study, 63 percent of those surveyed favor a clear diamond center stone with side stones or accents (or both). Musgraves’ ring also includes a halo, with 22 percent showing preference for that particular setting. Finally, nearly 1 out of every 2 people surveyed (49 percent to be exact) would like a round cut diamond.

Musgraves and Kelly got engaged on Christmas Eve in her childhood home in Golden, Texas. The star recalled the proposal details in a post the following morning.

“We had just been at my parent’s house randomly having a night of watching bittersweet old home tapes of all these beautiful family memories that were made in this little, old country house I grew up in that I now have,” she shared. “…It was so special. Of all the places in the world I’ve gotten to see, nowhere could mean more than this happening in tiny Golden, Texas in the house that completely made me who I am.”

She subsequently added in a separate post that the proposal took place in her bedroom. “The best man I’ve ever met got down on one knee in my little pink childhood the same room I played with my ponies and barbies and asked me the easiest question I’ve ever been asked,” she shared in a sentimental Instagram update. “ I finally know what everyone means when they say ‘you just know.’”

The future bride and groom started dating in 2016. Kelly echoed Musgraves’ sentiments last month on social media. “What a moment that will forever be one of the happiest I’ve ever experienced,” he expressed. “Happy to call them future sibs in law. And Kacey, I love you. Thank you for it all. Two for the road. MERRY CHRISTMAS.”
