After nine seasons as the Bachelor franchise’s jeweler extraordinaire, Neil Lane thought he’d change things up just a little. When he arrived in Antigua toting six diamond rings for Desiree Hartsock’s final two suitors to peruse, he included one option that highlighted — appropriately! — rose gold.
And as Lane hoped, Chris Siegfried immediately zeroed in on the unusual handcrafted ring. “Chris and I spent a long time talking and he was drawn to the symbolism of the platinum and rose gold bands entwined,” he says. “The ring entwines the bands into one, just as Des and Chris are two people wrapped into one couple and forever entwined. It’s beautiful.”
