The couple was vacationing in Aspen, Colorado with their son, Greyson, when Anthony popped the question on the morning of December 31. In an interview with PEOPLE posted on January 12, the RHOM mom dished about the proposal. "Anthony isn't the most emotional person, but out of nowhere he started sharing some really beautiful sentiments about our lives and relationship — honestly he kind of lost me at this point, because my heart started racing as I realized what was coming, and all I could think was, 'Oh my god, oh my God… is this really happening right now?!'" Nicole said.
"The next thing I hear is him say, 'I don't want another year to go by without making sure you know that I love you, and I want to spend forever with you,'" she recalled. "And just when I thought my mind was blown, he pulls out the most stunning ring."
Anthony presented Nicole with a beautiful cushion-cut stone. The antique sparkler is set on a thin pavé diamond band that's ultra dainty against the large rock. "He knew that it was my favorite cut of diamond," Nicole explained. "I'm obsessed. The ring is elegant and sleek. I'd call it simple, but it's hard to use that word when describing a 10-carat stone."
The couple has been together for over seven years after meeting in Las Vegas in 2015. Following the engagement, Nicole told PEOPLE that they are "not rushing anything" when it comes to planning the wedding.
"I'm just getting used to the sparkle on my hand," she said. "I'm loving every moment of my life with Anthony and Greyson."
In a January 12 Instagram, Nicole shared a photo of her and her soon-to-be husband as she flashed the striking ring.
"Creating a life we love… Always," she captioned the sweet snap.
