Fashion editor Laura Brown just got engaged and the ring is immense.

InStyle magazine editor-in-chief Laura Brown is engaged – and her ring is nothing like we’ve ever seen before.

The Australian fashion journalist announced her engagement to her New York-based writer partner Brandon Borror-Chappell on New Year’s Day after he proposed while the couple were caring for rescued kangaroos at a sanctuary in Alice Springs.

Fans were thrilled for the 44-year-old and her 28-year-old fiance – but really just wanted to get a closer look at the ring, and on Wednesday she obliged with a close-up.

The ring, by Melbourne jewellery designer Stefano Canturi, in a unique, geometric take on the halo ring design everyone seems to be wearing these days.

Oh and here’s what it looks like in sunlight:

The pair has been dating since 2015 and live in New York together where Laura edits the US version of InStyle magazine.

Brandon has previously addressed the raised eyebrows the couple sometimes receives because of their 16-year age gap.

In a personal essay for Refinery29, he wrote: “I think the curiosity stems from a combination of genuine interest in the age gap between Laura and me and the fact that she is successful — and quite publicly so.”

The comedian also described just what it was about his partner that he loved so much.

“Her sunny disposition, quick wit, and obvious comfort in her own skin allow her to shine anywhere. And she is thoroughly decent, irritatingly creative, and has razor-sharp instincts, encouraging whomever is in her audience to feel naturally themselves,” he wrote.

Congratulations to the happy couple.
