Eeep! Angela Kinsey, aka Angela Martin from The Office, just got engaged and her gorgeous ring is just about as swoony as her proposal story.

As Angela tells it on Instagram, her daughter and her boyfriend’s sons played the part of little Cupids, getting her in position in the backyard by pretending they wanted to show her a fort they had built (slick moves, kids, slick moves). Then, they told her to sit on a blanket by the pool and brought her flowers before her boyfriend came around the corner with the ring.

And WHAT a ring. In a sea of diamond engagement rings, the square-cut emerald stunner with a gold band is totally original and totally swoonsville.

So why emerald? As Angela explains in the post, emerald is the birthstone of all three of their kids (which means May is birthday SEASON in the Kinsey household), so rather than go with a diamond, Angela’s boyfriend decided to get his girl a precious gemstone that carried a heckuva lot more personal significance.

Is this the beginning of a trend towards birthstone engagement rings? Or will this just remind everyone how thoroughly dope emeralds are, and will we see more green start to regularly pop up on ring fingers? Only time will tell!!
