It’s mayhem now that rose-toting Ben Higgins is off the market, and The Knot has got all the details on Lauren Bushnell’s gorgeous new Bachelor engagement ring by Neil Lane!
Though Ben confessed he fell for both Lauren and JoJo Fletcher in what proved to be an emotional rollercoaster of a show, it was Lauren who stepped away from the Bachelor finale with a stunning sparkler.
Fans were on the edge of their seats until the last minute for Ben and the two remaining Bachelor contestants, wondering who would get the final rose, if she’d say yes, and if a wedding was in the works. Of course, as the results rolled in, it was tough not to feel for JoJo, but Ben’s proposal to Lauren was so sweet.
The Bachelor engagement ring is a beautiful Art Deco design with a radiant cut diamond surrounded by over 240 round and baguette cut diamonds, Neil Lane confirmed to The Knot. The total diamond weight clocks in at approximately 4.25 carats! Though viewers weren’t hearing wedding bells on the After the Final Rose special, Ben did bring Lauren’s family on stage to share in a second proposal. Two proposals, but only one (incredible) ring!
Ben actually proposed to Lauren on November 23, 2015 he shared on Jimmy Kimmel Live after the finale aired. But last night was the first time we saw the final rose ceremony, his emotional goodbye to JoJo, and his proposal to Lauren. It was also the first time his flight attendant fiancee donned the Neil Lane diamond engagement ring Ben selected for her!
As for JoJo, she may not have a diamond ring yet but she is well on her way! It was revealed, also on the After the Final Rose special on March 14, that Joelle (JoJo) Fletcher will be the new Bachelorette on season 12 of the ABC series airing on May 23.
