It's a well-established fact that diamonds are a girl's best friend, and the ladies of ABC's The Bachelor and The Bachelorette are pretty much BFFs with these sparkly gems. They love diamonds even more than they love red roses, so you can imagine their excitement when Neil Lane and his fleet of workshop elves show up with boxes of engagement rings ripe for the picking. But the best part? ABC pays for the rings out of their own pocket!
The network's bling budget has been steadily increasing for the most part, but the sparkliest gem of the Bachelor / Bachelorette bunch was Emily Maynard's stunner —r a gorgeous rock with a band made up of pave diamonds, which retailed for over $150,000.
