One Bay Area man has a new way to show his sweetheart that she really lights up his life. He created a special engagement ring for his fiancée that lights up when he's nearby.

Ben Kokes, a 36-year-old San Francisco engineer, spent five months perfecting the ring before finally giving it to his fiancée Julie.

She was so excited that she didn't even let him finish his proposal speech.

Kokes has to wear a transmitter armband to make the LED ring light up, but he says it can be tucked under his jacket.
