A ring is a ring is a ring. Unless it's worn on the left ring finger, in which case everyone freaks the freak out.
As our pals at Elle have noted, celebrities have been known to keep the media guessing with fake engagement rings. As such, it's highly possible that there's nothing to really read into Lea Michele stepping out with a prominent rock on her ring finger. Maybe it just fits that finger better. Maybe it has a special symbolism that has nothing to do with weddings. Maybe it's just a ring.
Michele, who flashed the bling during her visit to the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! yesterday, is now fielding rumors that she and live-in boyfriend Matthew Paetz are headed down the aisle. That's also possible, but a look at the Glee star's Instagram account suggests otherwise.
Oh, look, there she is flashing all the onyx ring alongside other fancy jewelry! And, she's thanking jewelry designer Jennifer Meyer. Could it be that Meyer simply loaned her the baubles for her TV appearance? That's what we're betting on.
Besides, Michele strikes us as the kind of girl who'd pair a classic Tiffany diamond with a tattooed band around her ring finger. If we see one of those, we'll know it's real.
