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?

What’s wrong with you people? If he can afford to buy her a ring like that and add more diamonds to it, that’s his choice. Get over it everyone! Its a beautiful ring. It sounds to me like most of you who have posted comments are juts jealous.

I am sorry, but that ring looks very gaudy.

Too bad they put so much effort into an engagement ring when it’s the wedding band that means the most. Anybody can give you an engagement ring, only one man (hopefully) ends up putting a wedding band on your finger to “seal the deal”.

These huge, gaudy rings are ridiculous!

She didn’t like it the way he gave it to her??

Houser ‘customized the ring with additional diamonds to reflect the bride-to-be’s style.’?

The bride-to-be must be one tacky individual, because that ring would be gaudy in a Claire’s Boutique!

I’m sure she loves it but it went way past tasteful to cumbersome and cartoonish. I always wonder about women who need so many rocks and what that says about how they define love.

I’m BLINDED……..That is some BLING!
