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!”

That is the most unique ring I have ever seen. It’s so neat. Neil Lane sure came up with a great idea. Im sure she loved it. It’s one of a kind.

The ring above doesn’t match the one on her finger in the instagram pic…
Hers looks like a cheaper version of the above.

@ NEL: ITA.

I always feel like these over the top displays of love are hiding deeper rooted marital problems, but I feel that way with any couple, not just celeb ones.

Jennifer on

wow that is unattractive.

Kay on

Yuck

I don’t really care for it. Maybe it looks different on. But I think it’s sweet that he gets her a ring every year. Hope they last for many years to come.
