"Parks and Recreation" star Amy Poehler was looking glam on the red carpet in advance of the Emmy Awards. But it was her ring that made quite a sentimental statement.

Poehler, an Emmy nominee for lead actress in a comedy, was wearing a sparkly halter dress with plunging neckline from Stella McCartney. And her jewelry? Instead of $2 million bling, the blonde opted for a $2 adjustable ring that came out of her child's toy box.

She wore the oversized accessory in place of a wedding ring.

The comedian has faced some serious challenges this year. The actress recently announced her split from Will Arnett, her husband of nine years. They have two children together, who apparently don't hold back on the fashion advice.

Poehler told Ryan Seacrest of her son's pushing the kiddie ring, "He told me I should wear it, and I listen to him." She called her children "super great and cute."
