Kerry Washington may be keeping quiet about her recent marriage to Nnamdi Asomugha, but that sparkly wedding ring on her finger is making a whole lot of noise.

The "Scandal" star was spotted at Sunday's ABC party at the Television Critics Assn. in Beverly Hills wearing a diamond ring paired with an orange and white Giambattista Valli dress and Christian Louboutin pumps, according to E! News.

The "Django Unchained" actress, 36, secretly married San Francisco 49ers cornerback Asomugha, 32, in Idaho on June 24. The couple are said to have been been dating for about a year.

The TCA party marked her first official public appearance since the nuptials and thanks to the power of photography and zoom-in technology, fans got to get a glimpse of two bands on her ring finger: a diamond-encrusted band and a simple gold band. 

However, Washington refuses to say anything about the nuptials in person or on social media.

"So... I just wanna say: its great being back & I LOVE reading all your tweets but...FYI I still dont talk about my personal life on here," the actress tweeted in July, adding "I seriously <3 you guys!"

Washington, who followed up her "Django Unchained" Oscar nomination with an Emmy nod for "Scandal," is also grateful for her recent success and was dubbed the "the hottest woman on TV" by Elle magazine last May.

"I'm the luckiest broad in Hollywood now," Washington said in the June issue of the fashion mag. "To be the lead actor on 'Scandal' and to be in the highest-earning Tarantino movie — I don't get to ask for more."
