Tori Spelling's 'Spinning' Anniversary Ring from Dean McDermott: All the Exclusive Details

After seven years of marriage, Dean McDermott wanted to change things up a little.

So when he approached L.A. jewelry designer Neil Lane about creating a special anniversary gift for his wife Tori Spelling, McDermott cut to the chase: “Dean wanted something unusual, different and something very special and celebratory,” Lane tells PEOPLE. “Every year he gets Tori a ring to honor a renewal of their vows and this year, their 7th year of marriage, was really important to him. He loves her so much and it had to be special.”

Mission accomplished. After Lane mulled over many designs in short order — “I had less than a week to come up with the perfect gift,” he says — the result was a dazzling ring set in 18k gold with over 150 small rose cut diamonds, for a total of about 3 carats. And the fun part? “It spins around!” says the celebrated jeweler. “It’s a diamond ball, a little diamond world, and Tori can spin it on her finger.”

While the unique effect may be playful, the ring’s meaning is deeply romantic. “Tori and Dean are so interconnected and she is, literally and spiritually, the world to him. I wanted to make a sphere, a world all in diamonds,” says Lane. “To make it sexy, a little Hollywood with a bit of a vintage feel, I put diamonds in it and the spinning movement represents how their worlds revolve around each other.”

When McDermott surprised Spelling with it last week, she was floored. “Tori loved it!” says Lane, who has worked with the couple for years. “Dean is very romantic and sentimental and he totally adores her. The ring represents the significance of their relationship. She rocks his world!”

I love how in love they are, and I love that the ring symbolizes that she is the world to him. Congrats to these two, and their beautiful, happy family!

I saw the one on instagram…i’m not a gold person so not my taste would maybe wear it in silver

If she loves it, great, and it’s sweet he was thoughtful and everything, but I confess I find the design very unattractive and even a little odd. Contemporary items like this seem like a waste of good diamonds to me!

That ring might not have been so bad if it were white gold and maybe if the stones were some pink diamonds.

Hey Neil, give me a free ring and I’ll let everyone know it’s from you!

The top of the ring looks like a purse

Even if I was rich, most of the time celebrity bling is not my style – but I have to say that ring is amazing!! So cool and unique! They are such a cute couple. People who call Tori a home wrecker remember this, you can not ‘steal’ a happy man! Best wishes to them and their beautiful family.
