Catherine Giudici could hardly believe it when Sean Lowe proposed to her at the end of The Bachelor Season 17. But it wasn’t because of the $80,000 Neil Lane stunner he presented her with that she could barely speak. In fact, he revealed on “After the Final Rose” that it was minutes before she even looked at the ring. The cushion-cut diamond, surrounded by more pave diamonds around the band, is set in platinum, and is almost as good-looking as her hot fiance.
But something about it reminded us of the engagement ring Emily Maynard was given by ex-fiance Jef Holm in the Bachelorette Season 8 finale. Emily’s emerald-cut ring was also designed by Neil Lane, but with a few differences. The single band is also blingin, but the shape and cut owe more to the 1920s deco than Catherine’s more modern ring. In fact, Em’s ring featured a 3.5-carat center stone surrounded by 87 smaller round-cut diamonds. Unfortunately for Emily, when Jef went, so did the ring... Oh yeah, and did we mention that her ring cost upwards of $150,000 and was the most expensive ring in Bachelor history?
So, whose ring would you want to wear on your finger for the rest of your life? Weigh in below.
