Jesse James picked out a surprisingly traditional engagement ring for his tattooed fiance, Kat Von D. The L.A. Ink star was spotted at the 16th Annual Los Angeles Art Show Opening Night Premiere Party held at the Los Angeles Convention Center proudly showing off her new ring.

Kat’s ring is from Neil Lane (who also created rings for Nicole Richie and Jessica Simpson, among others). It is a four-carat-plus platinum and diamond ring and is from his archival collection.

“It’s a beautiful ring set with a central round diamond in the middle with smaller surrounding diamonds for an overall dome shape. It has a delicate filigree pattern with very pretty scroll-work,” Lane says.

In case you were wondering, Jesse also used Neil Lane for his engagement ring to ex-wife Sandra Bullock.

James took to Twitter yesterday to express his love for Kat Von D, tweeting: “An amazing woman who stood behind me when the world turned their backs. I have never met anyone so kind and loving and committed to making the world a better place every day. My love for her is beyond description. So honored that she said ‘yes.’ Growing old with her is going to be a (expletive) blast!”

What do you think of Kat’s engagement ring? Do you think it is too traditional — and not edgy enough? Or do you love it?
