When it came to designing the perfect engagement ring for his longtime girlfriend, model Jacqui Ainsley, Guy Ritchie’s creative chops came in handy.

“He was very involved in the whole process, very interested in each detail of the ring, he’s a director!” jeweler Neil Lane tells PEOPLE exclusively. “Guy wanted something cool, a little vintage and romantic and we closely collaborated on designing something very special.”

After an initial visit to Lane’s L.A. boutique to brainstorm ideas, the filmmaker worked with Lane over several weeks via email and text to hone the design. The result was a five-carat, old European-cut diamond ring set in platinum and “filled with details,” says Lane. “It has an Edwardian feel. Guy’s British and the Edwardian period started in England in the early 1900s and was when pure white, tiny diamonds first came into fashion. This ring has over a hundred tiny diamonds that sparkle around a center stone.”

Needless to say, when Ritchie proposed to Ainsley, who is expecting a child later this year, the filmmaker had an immediate hit on his hands. “Jacqui loved it!” says Lane. “Those two are so happy, totally in love and excited for the baby and their future.”

Just dont care for the large center stone. on

Honesty, he helped design it? How much different can a ‘ring’ get? Everything has been done. You meant to say, he PAID for it!

It is beautiful, but…this seems to be the ring all the celbs are going with the last few years. They really all do look the same.

@Tracey, I agree with you. Longtime implies at least 5 years to me.

Soqui on

Beautiful! I hope that they will be very, very happy!

Nice ring but all of these big engagement rings are starting to look the same.

This is soo much prettier than Jennifer Aniston’s ring.

Too big and gaudy. Just like the rest of the rings.
