The Dancing With the Stars judge will marry the pro hockey player on Saturday, July 8, so now fans are wondering what her engagement ring looks like! Back in 2015, Brooks presented his lady with a stunning, six-carat ring designed by Lorraine Schwartz.
Julianne’s engagement ring from Brooks.
After their engagement, Julianne gushed about the piece of jewelry on her website. “The ring itself makes me feel very feminine and takes my breath away every time I look down, which I can’t stop doing, by the way… I’ll even wake up in the middle of the night to make sure it’s still there! I never thought I’d be the girl sticking her hand out to her friends and screaming in unison but here I am, shrieking all over LA,” she wrote of her bling at the time.
The 28-year-old also shared the story of how Brooks proposed to her two summers ago. “Although I knew Brooks was the one the day I met him, I had no idea what to expect as far as when and how he’d pop the question. Well… let me tell you guys, it was magical and sweet. We were at home, romantic and relaxed, which is perfectly very ‘us,'” she said on her blog.
“We stood on the deck, watching the sun set over the lake and listening to our favorite songs… I was so taken aback when Brooks got down on one knee I completely blacked out! It was like a rush of heat and a wave of uncontrollable emotion swept right through my body. I didn’t have any words at first (me! no words!). All I could do was explode into his arms and experience pure joy from head to toe,” Julianne continued.
She previously opened up about their special day — and revealed they’ve been putting a lot of work into their first dance!
“I never thought that we would do [a choreographed dance], but [Brooks] really wants to do a first dance and have it be like a special thing,” the actress said. “Even before we ever met, as a kid he really wanted to dance. He’s always wanted to dance.”
We can’t wait to see photos from the big day!
