It may have been a rough year for many of us, but there were still plenty of highlights that kept us swooning 鈥 Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth鈥檚 rekindled (and adorable) romance, Ciara and Russell Wilson鈥檚 lavish wedding, and Margot Robbie鈥檚 super stealthy yet sentimental AF ceremony, just to name a few. And that now includes Ashley Greene鈥檚 engagement and absolutely stunning ring.

Ashley Greene

On a gorgeous holiday getaway with her longtime boyfriend, Paul Khoury, the 29-year-old Twilight actress was enjoying a truly magical moment hiking through the forest and ending up at Bridal Veil Falls in New Zealand (we see what you did there, Paul!). And that鈥檚 when it happened.

Ashely shared what will surely be a treasured memory on Instagram with the message, 鈥淭his is the most beautiful moment I could have ever hoped for. You鈥檝e successfully made me the happiest, luckiest woman alive. I can鈥檛 wait to show you my unfaltering immeasurable love for the rest of our lives. #engaged #馃拲 #loveofmylife #futurehusband.鈥 Swoon!

She also shared a couple of pics of her ring, a lovely oval diamond with smaller stones adorning the band. She added, 鈥淚鈥檓 SO lucky and SO excited that I get to spend the rest of my life with my best friend 鉂わ笍 but the ring doesn鈥檛 hurt either. It鈥檚 the most beautiful thing I鈥檝e ever seen 馃槏馃槏.鈥

Congratulations to the loving pair!
