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.”

I think this prettier than Jennifer Aniston’s ring.

So happy for them. He always seemed like such a nice guy and too good for Madge! Congrats!

Nice ring, and it’s nice he had Madonna’s money to pay for it.

Waste of money on something that will only last five years. Better to keep your money in the bank for the divorce settlement. This woman seems like a golddigger, getting pregnant twice in two years of dating!!!!!

Absolutely gorgeous!!

Really on

Why do they say he designed this? It looks JUST LIKE every other ‘designer’ ring!

It looks like a standard Neil Lane ring…

Leave Jen Alone on

Congratulations! What a beautiful ring and I hope they will be very happy. I won’t imagine the hoop jumping he had to do being married to Madonna. Best wishes.
