When country singer Randy Houser proposed to fellow singer-songwriter Jessa Lee Yantz, he did it with a stunning diamond ring.

But that was just the beginning of the jewelry’s journey.

After Yantz said yes, Houser took the bauble back to Nashville-based King Jeweler, where he bought it. Then, together with jeweler David King, Houser and Yantz customized the ring with additional diamonds to reflect the bride-to-be’s style. The completed piece is composed of almost 5.5 carats of brilliant-cut diamonds (totaling more than 300 stones!) set in 18-karat gold with a double diamond halo.

“The complexity of a handmade ring of this degree was a great challenge, but the creative input and passion from both Randy and Jessa helped us create something not only gorgeous and brilliant, but tasteful and timeless,” King tells PEOPLE.

“Custom designing the ring for Randy and Jessa was an enjoyable and creative process,” adds the jeweler. “Randy is such a cool, laid-back guy who really loves her so much, and Jessa is an artistic young woman with an amazing eye for design, which made the process really fun and easy.” Tell us: What do you think of the customized ring?

It’s just too gaudy, and far from tasteful…BUT it’s probably what she wanted, and like a loving, dutiful hubby-to-be would do, he got her what she wanted.

Wow, gorgeous! But I wonder if these women even end up wearing these expensive rings. I’d be afraid someone was going to try and rob me by hitting me over the head to get my ring!!! Let’s face it, you would have to be really careful while wearing it. But really why have it if it’s to pretty/expensive to wear.
