Bachelorette Andi's Engagement Ring from Josh: All the Details (and Photos!)

07/29/2014 at 03:01 PM ET

In his dozen seasons as the Bachelor and Bachelorette franchise’s go-to jeweler, Neil Lane has witnessed a spectrum of emotions from wanna-be suitors perusing engagement rings. Some guys seem nervous (Jake Pavelka). Others appear very self-assured (ahem, Juan Pablo). But when then-contestant Josh Murray, whose proposal to Bachelorette Andi Dorfman aired Monday night, sat down with Lane in the Dominican Republic to look at diamond rings, he was all unbridled enthusiasm.

“Josh was exuberant, sincere and just so psyched up to be there,” says Lane, who showed the former pro baseball player six options. “He is a really genuine, fun guy with a lot of positive energy and was just so excited about the whole process.” Murray, 29, honed in on a 3-carat diamond and platinum ring, set with a central oval-cut stone and surrounded by a tiered halo of 154 round diamonds.

“He wanted to get a pretty, feminine, soft-shaped ring, with a bit of glamour and wow effect,” says Lane, who designed the ring over the course of a month. “When Josh saw it, he knew this was the one. He said he could see it on Andi. He could see himself proposing with it.”

Likewise, Lane says, Murray shared that he was as sure Dorfman was The One right away. “Josh said he and Andi had an instant connection, that the first time he saw her he thought she could be the love of his life — and she is!” he says. “Josh seemed really deeply in love. He was really happy when he was picking out the ring and talking about Andi. Oh my God, he adores her!”

Such a pretty ring. Also, they make a really good-looking couple. Hopefully this one will last.

Beautiful ring (imo)

Victoria on

The ring is stunning ! Both Andi and Josh appear to be truly in love! I wish them all the best!!

grunflache on

Quite the sparkler! I noticed Nick glance down at it when Chris announced the engaged couple would reunite after the commercial break.

Eli on

Can someone please explain to me why when the Bachelorette claims to be all empowering women (haha) and letting them make choices why the chosen dude still has to proffer the ring and make the actual proposal?

Alissa on

Love the ring!! I want one :)

Ruby on

The most beautiful ring I have seen on this show! Fitting for such a beautiful couple! Josh’s excitement seemed genuinely sincere! Their journey was worth watching! I truly hope their love is forever!

sarah on

I love the ring! I like them as a couple. They seem really in love. I do see them lasting. They are lovey dovey like Ashely/JP and Sean/Catherine!

N.H on

I guess he broke the bank on the ring and had to sell his belongings,
Including his clothes. He looked pretty ridiculous wearing his little
Brothers suits and shirts. Good thing he didn’t sneeze or bend over or
The jacket buttons or pants zipper would have blown off or open.
Pants and jackets were so tight it looked like a wet suit.
But he kept on smilin’ !

Kristie Wilson on

the ring is gorgeous.

Pat Brown on

Do either of them have a job? He’s an ex baseball player, how does he make a living now? She left the DA’s office, and her job now is? I think this is fake so both can go on and do TV and movies, neither one seems to have another way to make money!

Bill on

How come the women don’t buy the guys an engagement ring? Well, feminists?

Phyllis on

NH, Josh did not pay for the ring…

ann kramer on

all the rings look alike

ivy on

I thought it was funny when Jimmy Kimmel talked about the proposal and how Andi had accepted the ring that Josh had not paid for. ABC pays for the ring and I think the deal is if the engagement is broken within a two year window, the ring goes back to ABC. I remember early on, there was an issue with one engagement and who was enritled to keep the ring after the couple split. I assume ABC solved it by developing a return policy, which makes sense.

that is the most pretty ring so far I have ever seen on this show.
they are a great couple and I wish them a lifetime of happiness!

I don’t understand getting engaged to someone you’ve just met in a staged setting, but I believe this one has promise because they live nearby. I think that helps a real-life connection as they may know the same people and places outside of the show. Best to them.

Oh, and Nick is a good-looking man. He seemed very desperate and shouldn’t have brought up that they slept together live…buuut it was juicy! LOL. I’m sure a lot of women are interested in him. He’ll be fine.

Josh and Neil Lane make a cute couple-who’s going to break it to Andi?

Melissa on

Hope she broke the news to Josh before Nick did. Was it a test to see who was better in bed. Hope she doesn’t prosecute cases like she chooses men.

Sara on

I don’t like her she doesn’t deserve it.

laura on

Looks like EVERY OTHER CELEBRITY ring…I know trends come and go, but this one needs to be over.

Linda on

I loved the ring and they make a very handsome couple. May they always be as happy as they seem to be right now.

ashley on

Beautiful! But I liked the first ring better…hope it lasts after we all found out she slept with Nick.

carol on

I love Josh and Andi together. They’re a perfect couple. I picked him the first night.

catsby on

The ring is beautiful. Don’t know about her!!!! Hope Josh knows what he is doing. She is not sincere I guess I feel sorry for the other bachelor but maybe he is the lucky one. A better girl will be waiting for him. One that will match him w/ honesty and perhaps clean cut.

Debo on

N.H., you think Josh “broke the bank” with this ring??? THE SHOW paid for the ring! N.H., I have some swamp land to sell you. You interested?

beckilynne on

Josh has great taste in RINGS! Too bad his taste in women is lacking. Sorry but, I’m just not sure about Andi. I hope she doesn’t break his heart like she did to so many others on the show. For Josh’s sake … I hope it lasts – at least as long as the luster in those diamonds!

The ring is very beautiful. They seem like a real couple and I hope they make it. Living in the same city should be a plus. But you all understand how the show works right? Out of 25 men, one is left standing at the end. That means 24 are sent home. The script never changes. So either Nick or Josh had to leave and Nick was it. He’s lucky that she let him go early and spared him the humiliation of coming down to the ceremony site. Nick wanted to “win” and was arrogant with it. It is what it is. And with that comment he made, I hope he remembers that he has sisters. Karma is real.

Susan on

I feel like Josh is a little lacking in the intelligence department compared to Andi. Amazed I haven’t seen that comment. He laughs and smiles alot, in fact,too much, and the way he kisses is a bit amateurish. I give it 6 months until she gives him the boot. And Andi seems like she has an axe to grind with Nick….wonder what happened, she was so ga-ga for him until the sleep over…………………….

Mollie Dunn on

So happy for the two of them!! They make a great couple! Real genuine love!!

Nikki on

ok so did he pay for the ring or the show? if they break up, does he return the ring ??? not sure how this works….jw

CJ on

I did notice Josh’s suit was way too tight. It didn’t even fit properly. But he seems genuine. As for the ring, how gorgeous is that!! Probably worth about 15 grand. And they said that American will be invited to the wedding. Gotta love seeing love through another’s eyes.

JP on

The ring is beautiful.

Anne on

It’s all about the bling!!!!!! What about respect for others???? Who sleeps with another man right before accepting a proposal? Am I missing something here?

tammy watson on

Who wouldnt love the ring? It was free. I would go for something that extravagant.

tammy watson on

One more thing. I agree with Ann. Who does sleep with another man right before another mans proposal? She deserves to have Josh dump her. She is used goods.

linda huddleston on

I think they are perfectly matched and the ring is awesome. Cant wait to see the wedding. Andi is an Ada in my state. I assume she will go back to work at some point. Best of luck.
