SANTA BARBARA, Calif., April 30 (UPI) -- George Clooney
proposed to fiancee Amal Alamuddin with an "ethically mined" diamond estimated at 7 carats.
People snagged a close-up look at the emerald-cut diamond when Clooney and Alamuddin dined with Cindy Crawford and her husband Randy Gerber at dinner in Santa Barbara, Calif., over the weekend.
The 52-year-old actor and longtime bachelor reportedly got down on one knee to propose to the 36-year-old lawyer last week.
Alamuddin's law film confirmed the engagement news on Monday.
"The barristers and staff of Doughty Street Chambers offer their best wishes and congratulations to Ms Amal Alamuddin, a member of Chambers, and Mr George Clooney on their engagement to be married," the firm said.
