When country singer Randy Houser proposed to fellow singer-songwriter Jessa Lee Yantz, he did it with a stunning diamond ring.

But that was just the beginning of the jewelry’s journey.

After Yantz said yes, Houser took the bauble back to Nashville-based King Jeweler, where he bought it. Then, together with jeweler David King, Houser and Yantz customized the ring with additional diamonds to reflect the bride-to-be’s style. The completed piece is composed of almost 5.5 carats of brilliant-cut diamonds (totaling more than 300 stones!) set in 18-karat gold with a double diamond halo.

“The complexity of a handmade ring of this degree was a great challenge, but the creative input and passion from both Randy and Jessa helped us create something not only gorgeous and brilliant, but tasteful and timeless,” King tells PEOPLE.

“Custom designing the ring for Randy and Jessa was an enjoyable and creative process,” adds the jeweler. “Randy is such a cool, laid-back guy who really loves her so much, and Jessa is an artistic young woman with an amazing eye for design, which made the process really fun and easy.” Tell us: What do you think of the customized ring?

Its flashy and overboard for someone who claims to be humble. Especially to submit a press release about it. Seems like a stab at getting her name out in the public as she seeks recognition also as a singer/songwriter who prior to now/ prior to Randy hadnt done much with her music career.
Bet there are co-writes in the works.. Can anyone say PRE-NUP RANDY!

Well I hate to break it to you, but if he didn’t know what carat he was buying then the store did not do their job in etciadung him. It should be on his reciept.6mm is pretty wide, so assuming it is a round brilliant cut it would be about a 1-1.5 carat.Depending on the clarity and color something like that should run about 4-6 grand.If it is a non-certified diamond then it probably is a VI clarity and a mid grade color and worth about $ 3,000 max.
