All About Blakeley Jones’s $100,000 Engagement Ring From Tony Pieper — Exclusive
Nick Peterson may have swindled his partner, Rachel Truehart, out of $125,000 – but that wasn’t the biggest surprise of the Bachelor Pad finale. Turns out everyone’s favorite single dad, Tony Pieper, had planned a top-secret proposal to his partner, Blakeley Jones… and, of course, she said yes!
Now, Wetpaint Entertainment has the exclusive first details on her stunning Neil Lane engagement ring.
We obtained a hush-hush description of the ring (shown here) from a production insider, then went to a diamond expert for all the crucial details. “This is a gorgeous ring,” the diamond expert told us. “It’s very substantial. The main stone is a square cut, with a pave border and a double pave band. All in all, there’s about 3 ½ carats of diamonds. Given its size and the fact that it’s a Neil Lane ring, I’d say it’s worth at least $100,000. Maybe a little more.” Don't worry, y'all — Tony didn't spend his son's entire college fund to buy Blakeley's bling; we're told the ring was generously donated by Neil Lane.
“Tony was very quietly flown out to LA about a week before the finale taped,” our show insider explains. “He met with Neil so he could pick the ring out personally.” Not only did Blakeley say yes, we hear she’s already living with Tony and his son in their Portland hometown!
Apologies to Nick, but we think these two are the season’s true winners!
