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?

Wow – it is a stunning ring! I don’t think I could wear something like that, but it’s beautiful!

Ok so it’s a beautiful custom ring..I get it but isn’t it a little over the top for these celebrities to spend millions on a ring when most of them end up getting divorced anyways!!! Who needs 300 diamonds on their engagement ring…..ridiculous……why don’t they take those millions and put them to a good cause like building houses for people who can’t afford them without asking for a tax write off in return…I know I would if I had that kind of money!!!

There’s way too much going on for my taste…but if she’s happy and he doesn’t mind paying for it…I guess it’s congratulations!

Oh, come on people. Another ring just like so many we have seen recently out of Hollywood. No one could come up with an original design?

I love the ring, but it’s a bit gaudy! When I was proposed to by my ex…he bought me a 2.5 carat flawless diamond with 2 full circle wedding bands that looked so much better than that! But congrats on the engagement…
