Love is blind, and doesn’t necessarily care about the design or size of the engagement ring when a proposal goes down. That was certainly true when the Bachelorette’s JoJo Fletcher said “yes” to her new love. Although the custom three-carat Neil Lane creation JoJo received from Jordan Rodgers was lovely, it leaned more on the side of a minimalist engagement ring (at least by Hollywood standards). On the other hand, the ring that (bumpit theory-fueling) Robby Hayes had ready for JoJo was an absolute stunner. Seriously, wow!
Another Neil Lane creation, the designer revealed exclusively to People that Robby had chosen a ring with a centrally set, round, brilliant cut diamond with two tapered baguette diamonds on the side, which were surrounded by 164 smaller diamonds. Yup, 164. The ring came in at 3.75 carats, and was a traditional design amped ALL the way up.
“It’s totally opposite from the simplicity of the [one Jordan gave JoJo],” Lane reveals. “This one is totally decorated. It was complicated to make. There’s a lot happening there. It’s really beautiful and really dynamic.” Dynamic, indeed! You can check it out here.
