So Kat von D and Jesse James are engaged, and despite how you might feel about the couple (James notoriously cheated on former wife, Sandra Bullock, just a year ago for those of you living in a cave), you have to admit her vintage-style engagement ring is totally cool.

And wouldn’t you know? Neil Lane is the designer responsible for the celebrity ring bling. (If I had a diamond for every time I wrote that sentence…)

Lane tells People the ring is a four-carat-plus platinum and diamond ring from his archival collection, adding,

“It’s a beautiful ring set with a central round diamond in the middle with smaller surrounding diamonds for an overall dome shape. It has a delicate filigree pattern with very pretty scroll-work.”

Not so delicate? The way this couple is gushing all over town about how perfect their lives are now that they’ve finally found true love. Ick!

Kindof reminds me of when Brad and Angelina couldn’t keep their mouths closed long enough to realize it might not be in the best taste considering Jennifer Aniston has a pair of eyes and ears that work just like everyone else and….

OK. Big inhale…

Update to original post of September3, 2010): Well, it’s official. Jesse James and Kat Von D are engaged, according to People.The vintage(?) diamond ring I spotted on her back in September must have been the real deal. Seems a little fast if you ask me. Hmmm…

Call me crazy, but that is, indeed, a diamond on Kat Von D’s ring finger, right?

The heavily-inked artist was out in LA celebrating both the opening of her new gallery, Wonderland, and her new relationship with Sandra Bullock’s lying, cheating ex – Jesse James – when photogs snapped a few close-up shots of what appears to be a lovely vintage diamond engagement ring.

While it’s no surprise the tattooed twosome found some things in common, they only started dating a month ago – and James’ heavily covered cheating scandal still smells like a rat.

But – hey. To each their own.

So far, they say they are just dating. But when People asked Von D if James is ‘The One”, she told the mag, “I believe he is, so yeah.”

Hmmmm….

What do you guys think? Is this a fashion ring or the real deal? Wonder what Sandra thinks of her ex’s new gal pal?
