The Bachelorette‘s JoJo Fletcher finally found her suitor on the August 1 season finale of the popular ABC dating show, as viewers saw Jordan Rodgers propose with a serious diamond.
According to Life & Style, JoJo’s engagement ring from Jordan is worth an estimated $80,000 and came courtesy of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette‘s go to luxury jewelry designer, Neil Lane.
Glamour dished the details on the engagement ring Jordan eventually proposed to JoJo with on The Bachelorette Season 12 finale, reporting that the stunning piece of jewelry featured an “oval-cut center stone in a four-prong setting with band that’s encrusted with a few hundred more diamonds.”
Both Jordan and rejected finalist Robby Hayes met with Lane during The Bachelorette finale to choose their perfect engagement ring for JoJo, and as fans of the ABC dating show saw, Jordan revealed that he wasn’t taking the decision lightly.
“Overwhelming is the right word for sitting there, trying to pick out a ring,” Jordan said of picking out the perfect ring on The Bachelorette season finale. “An engagement ring is forever — it’s going to represent that promise that it’s gonna be her and me for the rest of our life.”
Jordan also revealed in the episode that he was “scared in the best way” during his meeting with Neil Lane before the football star settled on an oval cut diamond for the big engagement.
Prior to the big finale airing, this years’ bachelorette spoke out about her dream engagement ring with In Style, where JoJo revealed that she was hoping for a ring with one large stone that was “timeless.”
“For the last few years, I’ve thought a lot about the type of ring I’d want and I always go back and forth about the different cuts,” JoJo told In Style before The Bachelorette finale.
“I always lean towards a more simple setting,” JoJo continued of her dream engagement ring, adding that she would love “something timeless” and “one big rock on a dainty, small band” rather than multiple stones.
And it looks like JoJo got what she wished for, though Jordan’s proposal doesn’t necessarily mean she can keep the engagement ring forever.
Radar Online previously claimed that The Bachelorette and The Bachelor couples must stay together for two years for the stunning engagement rings we see on the show to actually become theirs to keep.
The site alleged that the ring actually belongs to the show until the couple have passed the two-year mark, even reporting back in 2010 that former The Bachelorette star Jillian Harris had to give back her Neil Lane diamond, estimated to be worth $60,000, back to the ABC reality show following her split with Ed Swiderski.
Neil Lane previously spoke out about designing luxury engagement rings for both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette with StyleCaster, where the jewelry designer admitted that he makes the reality show’s numerous engagement rings with “love” and “a great deal of compassion.”
The Bachelorette‘s go-to engagement ring designer also revealed what happens to the rings that don’t get to be used in a proposal as well as where rings that belong to couples who split before the two year mark end up.
“I make rings hoping that people stay together forever, but after they get the ring, I don’t have a say in it, and what happens after that, I don’t know,” Lane admitted of the discarded The Bachelor and The Bachelorette engagement rings.
“Where the ring goes, I have to say, I don’t really know. I just say it goes to ring heaven. That’s my response,” he joked.
