If you’ve been in the Las Vegas area lately, you may have known Holly Madison was engaged even before she announced it on her blog.

That’s because her brand-new accessory is so giant, the reflection can likely be seen from miles away!

The ring (given to her by love Pasquale Rotella atop a Ferris wheel at Las Vegas’s Electric Daisy Carnival Sunday), is an 18-carat, cushion-cut yellow diamond surrounded by pink and yellow diamond flowers.

“My fiancé designed it himself,” with the help of celebrity jeweler Alan Friedman, Madison tells PEOPLE, “because I told him that’s what would make it most special.”

Part of what makes it so special: hidden touches Rotella included in the ring’s overall design. “Because we love owls, there is a hidden owl engraved on the rose gold in between two of the flowers,” she says. “The band is art nouveau-inspired, to go with the flowers.”

“I couldn’t have asked for a more wonderful or magical proposal!” Madison wrote on her blog of her night with Rotella, with whom she has daughter Rainbow, three months. And we can’t imagine a more magical ring, either.
