'The Bachelor' Engagement Ring: All the Details!

When jewelry designer Neil Lane landed in Chiang Rai, Thailand, he came bearing six engagement rings to show Bachelor Sean Lowe.

“Sean took it very seriously and looked carefully at each of his choices — including round- and princess-cuts — but once he saw the cushion-cut stone with all the romantic details, he knew this one was perfect,” says Lane, of the 3.15-carat platinum-and-diamond sparkler Lowe slipped on Catherine Giudici’s finger during his teary-eyed proposal on the show finale. “When he made his choice — of the ring, and of which woman he was picking — he was absolutely certain.”

Lowe was eager for the vintage-inspired ring to reflect Giudici’s “style, spirit and fashion sense,” says Lane. “He was really into it and loved that the cushion-cut was soft and romantic, with a vintage vibe that connected the modern and the past. It resonated with him since it combined Catherine’s sensibility as a modern woman with an appreciation for the past, and older things.”

The ring, which a giddy Giudici calls “classic and timeless,” features a center diamond exquisitely set with 164 smaller round diamonds. “Sean was so great to work with — one of the nicest, most sincere guys and a real gentleman,” says the celebrated designer, pictured below with Lowe. “And most importantly, he was confident he had found the love of his life in Catherine. I’m so happy for them!”

Well, it’s Catherine’s engagement ring, and the only thing that matters is that she loves it which she does. What she and Sean don’t care about is what other people think…or how many couples have failed before them. They focus on themselves . All I have to say is “Congratulations on your engagement, Sean and Catherine.”. May your lives be fully blessed.

It’s the same conclusion I felt with Catherine which Sean saw. She’s not a show-off lady, very sensible. Sean is really lucky to have and found love with her. God bless!

Same conclusion I’ve seen in Catherine which also Sean saw. He paid attention to her by watching her character and style, sexy but still conservative. God bless!
