Aly Michalka managed to keep her engagement a secret for more than a week!

Director Stephen Ringer proposed to the Two and a Half Men star under Bixby Bridge in Big Sur, Calif., on July 8, the 78Violet singer's rep tells E! News, adding, "They are planning for a late 2015 wedding."

Aly first flashed her ring at Just Jared's Summer Fiesta over the weekend, but her new bling went undetected. " one's noticed yet," she wrote on Instagram Tuesday. "#Lookcloser." The bride-to-be eventually published a picture of the diamond ring and wrote, "So this happened.....7/8."

According to Michalka's rep, "It's a vintage ring from the '20s." Zaven Ghanimian, jewelry expert and CEO of Simon G Jewelry, told E! News Wednesday that the "Rush" singer's jewelry features a 2 to 3.5 princess cut center stone. He estimated the platinum ring cost Ringer between $20,000 and $30,000.

She also shared a black and white Instagram picture of herself posing with Ringer, writing, "So proud to be your girl @auhasardspr love this photo from our first trip to Big Sur #engaged."

AJ Michalka also dropped a new wedding detail. "I couldn't be happier for my sweet sister Aly and brother in law Stephen! I love you both so much," she tweeted. "What a special couple. #maidofhonor."
