Back during Golden Globes weekend, Jessica Biel kept showing up at various events, looking either gorgeous or tragic, and always flying solo and without an engagement ring. The rumors/reports/confirmations were flying heavily in the weeks preceding the Globes that Justin Timberlake had proposed to Jessica while they were vacationing in Wyoming. We could endless speculate as to WHY he proposed (to get her to STFU?) or why Jessica said yes (because that’s all she’s got going?), but that’s neither here nor there. I truly believe Jessica and Justin are engaged – his grandma said so, and I believe in Us Weekly’s reporting because they have a history of dealings with Biel’s publicist. So why wasn’t Jessica wearing an engagement ring? Was it because she doesn’t have a lot going on, and she just wants to draw out the speculation for as long as she can? Or is it because Justin cheaped out on a tiny diamond? Survey says…
“Bling it on!” That’s what Jessica Biel told Justin Timberlake after turning up her nose at his skimpy diamond engagement ring, sources say. Biel – who hit the Globes red carpet solo, and with a ringless finger – has ordered Justin to splurge on a new sparkler, where has Justin enlisting his mom’s help!
“When Justin proposed to Jessica, she was disappointed with his choice of ring,” said a source. “Jessica isn’t a fancy girl, but she wanted something stunning – a bigger diamond that would impress her friends. Instead, Justin went more minimal, thinking she’d prefer something less flashy.”
But Biel believes Justin will be her partner for life, and wants a diamond that reflects their lasting love, the insider divulged.
“Jessica told Justin that although she was moved by his proposal, she wanted a ring with more bling,” maintained the source. “He was very understanding, and told her that she deserves to have what she wants. To placate her, Justin has not only enlisted his mom for help with her ring, but he’s going to propose all over again.”
“Justin will tide Jessica over with a ring – one that she’s happy with.”

Is it wrong that I see Justin’s frame of mind with the whole “minimal” thing? That is how Jessica puts herself out there, like she’s too busy hiking to care about jewelry. That being said, Jesus, Justin. You have millions of dollars! Buy her a nice, big ring if you really want her to STFU.
