A rep for the actress did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment.

Slate also showed off her engagement ring in the Instagram gallery she shared on Monday. The actress posted the photo as the last one in the gallery, smiling at the camera as she held up her ring finger while in France.

The unusual and striking ring appeared to be an antique prong-set sapphire with a halo of diamonds and a gold band.
