New York - The dazzling five carat sparkler on Amal Alamuddin's engagement ring finger made its public debut tonight as the happy couple dined out at the exclusive Upper East Side restaurant Nob-U-Like.
Thirty-six year old raven-haired beauty Amal looked stunning in $10,000 peach-colored off-the-shoulder Oscar De La Rent Boy original, perfectly coordinated with a pair of thousand dollar silver Manalos and a vintage Gucci crocodile clutch.
Clooney, 69, appeared pretty damned pleased with himself as the couple sipped $500-a-pop Dom Perignon and hand-fed each other tasty caviar morsels like a pair of love-up teenage trustafarians.
Their selfie posted later on the LA FagHagSlagMagNagNag.con celeb website very nearly brought down the blogosphere amid a mass eruption of speculation about Ms Alamuddin's enviable attractions.
"Maybe Amal's about ready to dump her top client Julian Assange," somebody tweeted, "who owes three years' lawyers fees and one helluva explanation."
The Oxford University and the New York University School of Law-educated human frights lawyer was in the public eye last February at the White House when Clooney took her to a private screening of his movie Monuments Men along with his parents, Nick and Nina Clooney.
Presidential aides later hinted they'd overheard Barack Obama bet George Clooney five thousand dollars that he 'didn't have the cojones' to propose to Alamuddin.
A copy of that IOU could make part of the lucky couple's prenup.
