Shiny!

If love is blind, then Blac Chyna's new 7-carat engagement ring is probably to blame. 

After revealing that she and sole Kardashian male, Rob, were engaged to be married, the hip-hop music video star gave the world an up-close and personal look at the rock — and boy, does it sparkle. 

"I'm so blessed and honored to have a good man in my life," Chyna wrote on Instagram of a video that shows off the blindingly bright ring from all angles. 

Kardashian's jeweler, Ben Baller, also posted the video on Instagram, writing a special message to his bud: "I have never seen you this happy before and I've known you since you were a teenager. I'm glad you came to your day 1 homie to get this massive [ring] for your lady. You know I don't play when it comes to diamonds. God bless."

The VVS 7-carat rock came from Baller's shop, IF & Co., which boasts other celebrity clientele including Justin Bieber, Floyd Mayweather and Tom Cruise. Though it's quite the statement ring, at 7 carats it's relatively modest in the world of celebrity. (For comparison, Kim Kardashian's ring is 15 carats, Beyonce's is 18 carats and Mariah Carey's is 35 carats.) 

The happy couple's whirlwind romance began in January of this year, but it wasn't without its drama.

Khloe Kardashian posted cryptic tweets about her little bro's relationship given the long-standing feud between Rob's younger half-sister Kylie Jenner and Blac Chyna. The two got into a beef after Jenner began dating Tyga, the father of Blac Chyna's 3-year-old son King Cairo Stevenson.

No word yet on how the rest of the Kardashian klan has reacted to the engagement announcement — shockingly, they've all kept mum on social media.
