When it came to designing the perfect engagement ring for his longtime girlfriend, model Jacqui Ainsley, Guy Ritchie’s creative chops came in handy.

“He was very involved in the whole process, very interested in each detail of the ring, he’s a director!” jeweler Neil Lane tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Guy wanted something cool, a little vintage and romantic and we closely collaborated on designing something very special.”

After an initial visit to Lane’s L.A. boutique to brainstorm ideas, the filmmaker worked with Lane over several weeks via email and text to hone the design. The result was a five-carat, old European-cut diamond ring set in platinum and “filled with details,” says Lane. “It has an Edwardian feel. Guy’s British and the Edwardian period started in England in the early 1900s and was when pure white, tiny diamonds first came into fashion. This ring has over a hundred tiny diamonds that sparkle around a center stone.”

Needless to say, when Ritchie proposed to Ainsley, who is expecting a child later this year, the filmmaker had an immediate hit on his hands. “Jacqui loved it!” says Lane. “Those two are so happy, totally in love and excited for the baby and their future.”

wow this is stunning

Tracey on

This is not a slam against Guy Ritchie or his new fiance, it really bothers me when People states that a couple are longtime boyfriend and girlfriend and it has only been two years or so. That is not longtime in my mind. This applies to people like Jon Hamm and Jennifer Westfeldt (sp?).

Tina on

It reminds me so much of the ring Brad Pitt supposedly designed for Angelina. And, I can’t remember who right now, but some other celebrity supposedly designed a very similar ring.

Janet on

WOW – beautiful ring. It looks like it could feed a small world country.

ME on

Sam on

Same ring different celebrity

daphne on

.. sigh, I agree with Janet– but it’s sure easy on the eyes–

I prefer the pink diamond ring Ryan Reynolds designed for Blake Lively.. and also the real beauty that Jim Toth gave to Reese Witherspoon—

debbie on

All of Neil Lanes rings look the same….the bachelorette shows use his rings and i don’t think they are unique at all but all the best to them nonetheless!

Mary on

Beautiful ring! Congrats. I am happy for them. Tracey, I agree with you.
