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!”

I watched the wedding, and the rings they showed trying on didn’t look rose gold, they looked to be platinum to me.

I personally don’t like the rings. Especially Sean’s ring. It looks too feminine for him to wear a Rose gold ring. Maybe Catherine wanted bands to match and he went along with it. When my husband and I got married we got rings that suits our personality. His ring is titanium with a wood inlay. I’m guessing this guy is eventually going to get another ring.

I don’t think she’s going to wear the wedding band with her engagement ring. At least I hope not because they are totally different styles…

Neil Lane sure does get a lot of advertisement out of this TV show (i.e. Bachelor).

Their rings are fantastic! My engagement ring is white gold with a round center diamond with 28 diamonds going down the sides. I chose to have a custom made double sided rose gold “enhancer” made as my wedding band. It looks very neat & is one of a kind…just like me!

don’t watch the show, ever…but didn’t people do a report of these two and hey said they were both virgins and waiting until marraige to have sex? if so, it’s a heck of a time to find out your not sexually compatible…

Pretty, but too trendy. In the next 10 to 20 years people will say, oh you got married in 2014, I could tell by your ring.

I’m envious of course, but happy for Catherine & Sean, a well deserved couple. Wish them lots of luck for a lasting marriage filled with joy, happiness and love.

Look at how tight this woman is gripping that man’s arm! She looks like she’s desperate to not lose him…how pathetic!!

Shawnalee on
