The Bachelor’s Engagement Ring Features 264 Diamonds!Mar 16, 2011 @ 4:30 pm
Brad Womack proposed to Emily Maynard on the season finale of The Bachelor this week with a ring designed by celebrity jeweler Neil Lane—and it’s a sparkler! Lane, whose A-list clientele includes Reese Witherspoon and Kate Hudson, told us that the 3-carat platinum bauble was “what Brad had always imagined.” “He wanted a soft romantic ring and we went through five of them, and he liked them but I could tell it wasn’t really there,” Lane said. “I had an intuitive feeling about what Brad would like, and when I brought the sixth one out, that was it!” Maynard also seems delighted with the ring, which features a cushion-cut diamond accentuated with 263 round, brilliant-cut diamonds. “She loved the ring she couldn’t be happier,” Lane told InStyle. “They’re very much in love, it was a lovefest, she loved it he loved it, he loved it on her.” The accessory cost $50,000, according to People, and Lane told us he’s designing something similarly sparkly for The Bachelorette, although he’s keeping the details under wraps for now.
