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.”

All I can say is: Whoa…

Hey People, two years of relationship definitely does NOT mean “longtime girlfriend”. You need 5 years or more to write that.

P.S. I like the ring.

Of all the celebrity rings shown recently, my opinion is Blake Lively’s by far is the most beautiful…

Tracey – agreed. Take Alex O’Laughlin – he just started dating the woman who is due to give birth to his child momentarily last fall – which means they were together less than 3 mos before she got pregnant, yet all articles on this subject refer to her as his “longtime” g/f. REALLY?? Personally I think the fact that more Hollyweird couples are getting knocked up outside of the marital commitment is making it too acceptable in our society. Stop glamorizing it – it’s not the best way to have a child. Just my opinion of course..
