Emily Maynard may have paused briefly before accepting now-fiancĂ© Jef Holm’s proposal on The Bachelorette — but it was probably because the Neil Lane ring he selected was that breathtaking.

Holm got down on one knee in Curacao on Sunday night’s finale, presenting Maynard with a 3.5-carat sparkler. The ring, handmade, features a 2.5-carat emerald-cut diamond accented with 87 smaller round-cut diamonds.

“I never in a million years thought I’d be so in love as I am,” Maynard said as she awaited Holm’s arrival in anticipation of a marriage proposal.

When he arrived, Emily told him that the long road to the finale “was all worth it … You really are everything that I’ve looked for for so long. I really do feel like you’re my soul mate. You are the perfect person for me. You get me better than anybody ever has. I love you so, so much.”

“I’m so in love with you,” he replied. “I promise you if you let me into your life and Ricki’s life you will never feel lonely ever again.”

Check back with tomorrow to hear even more details on Maynard’s gorgeous new ring!

A moderator let rick’s comment through. Nice. Not.

Anyone notice the editing of the “ring shot”? He pulled the ring out of his pocket without the box, yet when they showed the close up, the box and the prominently-displayed “Neil Lane” logo was there for all to see. Endorsement! LOL

She is way too platic and fake…just don’t understand why anyone would be attracted to her beyond her barbie doll looks.

The basic premise of this show is that if you are attractive and are introduced to 20 attractive people of the opposite sex – and spend a little time with each of them – you will find one of them to be the love of your life. To call this a “reality” show is quite disingenuous. I have to admit I like to see updates on who is in and who is out, just for curiosity. But to think either the Bachelor or Bachelorette shows are about a person truly finding their soul mate – out of 20 random people – in six weeks of dates – is pretty “unrealistic” to me. Still enjoy the entertainment, though, as evidence of my visit here to see THE ring!!

OMG!!! Had enough of this ! Emilu is into control big time! I did feel for her when she was with Brad but yet there are 2 sides to every story I have concerns as to why a woman would go on National TV to find someone, she is in it for the cameras light & action! To put a 6 year old girl through the media ring tells you alot did you see how unresponsive Ricki was to Jeff she was the same way with Brad, no offense but I can see as to why Brad & Emily broke up WOW this woman is not only fake in more ways than one but she certainly does love the attention and for Jef well he is a nice young man with a free life style additude. Wait till the cameras go away and the media dies down and EMily /Ricki throw a temper tantrem the ring will not be returned she will keep it just like she did to Brad and make some publicity off of this. Give it a few months and next thing you know her and Chris Harrison will be hosting something together !!! Arie & Shawn got off lucky good luck Jef you sweet little actor- Enough of the Bachelorette & Bachelor show I am tuning out!


Soooooooooooooooooooooooo over this show!

S on

@Danielle – I’m almost positive Trista’s ring was a tacori – not Neil Lane

notsosure on

Hope he likes crabs with his tuna. After all the foreplay on this show, one of them was bound to find it’s way down there. YUCK!
