Even prettier than Paradise. Jeweler to the stars, Neil Lane, flew down to Mexico to help the remaining Bachelor in Paradise suitors select awe-inspiring diamonds ahead of their proposals. As witnessed during the finale on Tuesday, September 6, Lane got a feel for what each man wanted in a ring — and the results were beautiful.
Here, The Knot reveals brand-new details about several of the rings from Neil Lane.
Josh Murray’s Ring for Amanda Stanton
Josh Murray, who was looking for something romantic for his love, Amanda Stanton, opted for a gorgeous square, emerald-cut diamond with a pave-set diamond band containing over 235 smaller round diamonds.
Stanton’s stunning 2.5-carat handcrafted ring, which was designed and signed by Lane himself, is platinum.
Lane helped Murray choose an engagement ring for Bachelorette Andi Dorfman two years ago when he won season 10. “He was the same warm-hearted guy with the same energy and a desire to find love,” the jeweler shared with People after meeting with Murray. “He really met his forever partner in Amanda.”
The jeweler also revealed that he believes Murray’s feelings for Stanton are the real deal. “He expressed how much he really loved Amanda, how he’d met her kids and he just seemed so warm-hearted and very much in love,” Lane said.
Evan Bass’ Ring for Carly Waddell
Evan Bass chose the perfect engagement ring for his sweetheart – who couldn’t stop staring at the mesmerizing rock following her new fiance’s proposal.
According to Neil Lane, Carly Waddell’s 1.5-carat ring features a fancy colored, pear-shaped diamond surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds. The diamond-set split band is set with 157 round diamonds, also set in platinum and hand crafted and signed by the famous jeweler.
“Evan described Carly and how much he loved her quirky personality and how he wanted something completely different,” Lane told People of Bass’ ring choice. “It’s beautiful and unusual and suits her unique personality.”
Waddell shared with the magazine that her gift from Bass is the “most beautiful thing [she’s] ever seen,” and more than she could have ever hoped for.
Lane dubbed the lovebirds “the perfect match,” telling the outlet, “Evan seemed so happy to have found his true love.”
If the cost of their engagement rings is any indication as to how much these couples value their relationships, they’ll be rich on love for life!
