When Jake Owen surprised his girlfriend with an impromptu proposal Easter weekend, it was so spur-of-the-moment that he was unable to "put a ring on it"--because he didn't have a ring! Not to worry, though. He's more than made up for that little oversight.
People reports that Owen has given fiancee Lacey Buchanan a truly stunning sparkler--a 2.5 carat oval solitare set in platinum, which he designed with the help of an Atlanta jeweler. (Check out photos of the ring here! Not bad, eh?)
"I was so excited to give it to her," Owen noted to People. "She's the most unique, amazing person I've ever met and I needed something on her finger just as unique as she is." Awww.
Owen presented the ring with some sweet words, as well. "The sparkle is never going to go away in that ring, and I don't want our sparkle to ever go away either," he told Buchanan. Awww again--ladies, are you all swooning by now?
There's no date set for the wedding yet, but I'll keep you posted as I hear anything (you all know me and my country-wedding fetish, right?). In the meantime, Owen will be hitting the road with Kenny Chesney and Tim McGraw this summer as part of the Brothers of the Sun tour. You can keep up with his schedule here.
