The Bachelor's Sean and Catherine: Exclusive Photos of Their Wedding Rings and More!

01/28/2014 at 09:00 AM ET

When jewelry designer Neil Lane first met Bachelor Sean Lowe in Chiang Rai, Thailand, last March, it was mere hours before Lowe’s teary-eyed proposal to Catherine Giudici on his season’s show finale. Yet Lowe — who chose a vintage-inspired, 3.15-carat diamond engagement ring that day — was the picture of calm.

“Of course Sean was excited, but he was so certain he’d found the love of his life that he was pretty relaxed,” recalls Lane. Fast forward about 10 months, when Lowe and Giudici stopped by the jeweler’s L.A. store to pick out wedding bands for their Jan. 26 nuptials. “Sean was the same guy – excited, sincere, committed and certain of his choice in Catherine — and eager to find the perfect rings,” Lane tells PEOPLE exclusively.

And Lane echoes what many have said about the giddy couple, who were wed Sunday night in Santa Barbara, Calif.: they’re very obviously enamored of each other. “They both took it very seriously but were very lovey-dovey, holding hands the whole time, with that happy glow in their eyes.” After browsing an array of styles, the pair went for something unusual: bands made from rose gold.

“Sean liked the idea of having something different, almost like a fashion statement, and wanted rose gold and platinum for his band. Catherine loved the idea and decided on a matching aesthetic of all rose gold,” says Lane, who custom-made the bands over the last month and added 114 round small diamonds to hers to add sparkle. “It’s a very romantic set of bands!”

The bling-to-romance ratio was off the charts, though, when Lowe and Giudici tied the knot this weekend, fully outfitted in custom-made jewelry by Lane. Giudici’s bridal look included 25-millimeter pearl drop platinum earrings made with 20 carats of diamonds, and a 50-carat bracelet in a floral pattern — as well as diamond drop earrings to change into for the reception. For his part, Lowe wore platinum cufflinks with 10 carats of diamonds, plus four matching, specially designed 20-carat diamond shirt studs. “They both sparkled on their wedding day!” says Lane, who was a guest at the romantic event.

Having made the rings for the show for years now, Lane has a long history with Bachelor couples — in fact, he recently created the vow renewal ring Ryan Sutter presented to Trista in December (that’s him, above, with the couple). “More than anything, it was such an amazing experience to be a part of so much love. The wedding was beautiful, with thousands of white and pink roses – I felt I was in a fairyland. And to see the other Bachelor couples, like Trista and Ryan and Molly and Jason, it was like one big happy family!”

Rose Gold is beautiful. Although I would worry in 10 years I might be sick of it, but who knows. I went with yellow gold when I married 15 years ago and I disliked it for the last 6 years. I just upgraded this Christmas and I’m very happy, so I guess there’s always that option. I know my husband, personally, wouldn’t wear a rose gold band….no matter who the designer was.

Doesn’t really go with her engagement ring.

Random, but during the special when they are sitting on the bench at the wedding location, he pulls out the Neil Lane box and she tries on her band. It isn’t this rose gold one. It looks rounded and platinum. Then during the ceremony, he puts a thin band (i’m assuming this one) on her finger. Were there two bands? Did anyone else notice this?

Catherine’s ring is beautiful, Brad’s ring I’m sorry it looks a little feminine for a man.

Gorgeous rings – wish they had that color when I got married in 1985!

A pink wedding band for a dude? Really tacky. Rose gold does NOT look good with diamonds at all. Should always be platinum. Trista’s ring is very pretty though. It’s all about advertising on that show.

Pam on

@Tanya who is Brad? Lol, it’s Sean.

Pretty rings but she will be tired of it in a year. Rise gold is a fad, go with classic!

Pacificgirl on

I find her look very boring. Yawn.
