There’s a story behind the sparkle. Country singer Maren Morris, who announced her engagement to Ryan Hurd in July, admires her ring daily knowing that so much thought went into the bauble.
“I know what she likes and I had somebody in Canada put it together,” Hurd told Entertainment Tonight this week. “The stone is from New York City. It’s from an uncut diamond. And then the rest of it’s cast just custom for her.”
The “City Girl” crooner, 32, added, “I couldn’t just buy something. I had to make it something that fit her.”
Morris, 27, was so touched by the gesture that she broke down. “Oh, I sobbed. I mean it was so emotional and so perfect,” the “I Could Use A Love Song” singer said. “He’s a very thoughtful human being, and I feel like the proposal was just as thoughtful as he always is. So it was perfect.”
The future bride and groom were friends for two years before their relationship turned romantic in December 2015. They announced their engagement this past summer via Instagram with an artistic shot of Morris on Hurd’s lap with her ring in the forefront.

The two, despite their summertime engagement, are taking wedding planning one step at a time—a “glacial pace”—and would like to marry next spring.
“I think we’re kind of honing in on the springtime, before we kick off our tours again,” she added. For now, they’re “just enjoying being engaged.”
