Sandra Lee spotted ring shopping with fiancé Ben Youcef

Sandra Lee and fiancé Ben Youcef are celebrating their one-year anniversary by checking out wedding rings.

The lifestyle guru and her love were seen soaking up the sunshine on the stunning Amalfi Coast Saturday.

And they were beaming as they popped into Conte Gioielli Jewels to try on rings.

The couple got engaged last year, and will celebrate their anniversary on Sunday. Friends say they do plan to wed, and Youcef is already wearing a ring on his wedding finger as a sign of their commitment.

Lee, 56, and Youcef, 43, an actor, producer and interfaith leader, first met in Los Angeles, where Lee moved following the break-up of her 14-year relationship with disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

We revealed how the “shock” romance had brought some much-needed happiness back into Lee’s life after Cuomo is believed to have cheated on her.

The couple were in Italy for Lee’s birthday in July and are back for the summer.

Lee, wearing a simple white off-the-shoulder cotton dress, tasted gelato and joked around with Youcef as he tried on hats while sauntering along the quaint streets of Minori.

They’re touring Europe for the summer and were recently seen in St. Tropez in the South of France.

Youcef was also by Lee’s side as she underwent a grueling hysterectomy in March and suffered complications. She fought breast cancer in 2015.

She told Page Six in April they were planning a big summer vacation, saying their romance was “perfect”.

She wrote on Instagram on her birthday: “First and most importantly I am making my years count instead of counting the years.

“After this past year of health struggles, I know that life is too short not to celebrate every single chance I can get.”
