Scarlett Johansson Engagement Ring Showdown: Romain Dauriac vs. Ryan Reynolds
Bigger, better bling? Nearly three years after removing her wedding ring from Ryan Reynolds, Scarlett Johansson is sporting a new rock on her finger. A rep for the 28-year-old actress confirmed to Us Weekly on Wednesday, Sept. 4 that she is engaged to boyfriend Romain Dauriac.
"I can confirm that Scarlett and Romain are engaged," the rep said in a statement. "They haven't chosen a date for the wedding."
Johansson debuted her new engagement ring while walking the red carpet at the 2013 Venice International Film Festival on Sept. 3. The Under the Skin star's vintage sparkler from her French journalist fiance appears to feature three round diamonds on a large rectangular, Art Deco setting.
The bride-to-be's ring is a stark contrast from her first engagement ring from first husband Reynolds. In May 2008, The Change-Up actor, 36, proposed to Johansson with a traditional round-cut diamond set on a yellow gold band. Having separated in December 2010, the two stars' divorce was finalized in July 2011 after nearly three years of marriage.
Reynolds remarried in September 2012 to his Green Lantern costar Blake Lively, 26. For his second marriage, the actor chose a slightly different look for an engagement ring. "Ryan chose Lorraine Schwartz to help him find a flawless, light pink oval diamond," a spokesperson for the jeweler told Us Weekly. "They worked together to design a custom setting in rose gold and pave diamonds with a nod to deco."
In an interview with Cosmopolitan magazine in 2011, Johansson said her marriage to Reynolds was "the best thing I ever did" and the "right thing to do because it was natural."
That being said, she also admitted that their marriage was "complicated." She confessed, "Being married is a living, breathing process. I think I was not fully aware of the peaks and the valleys. I wasn't prepared to hunker down and do the work... Both of us were extremely busy. We spent so much time apart. It's very difficult."
