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.”

@tina…research your facts. The cut and entire ring is TOTALLY DIFFERENT than Angelie Jolie’s ring. Not even close.

did the money he got from Maddona buy the ring??? I mean who was this guy before he was married to her?

Materialistic rich people ugh!

What a beautiful ring! I wonder what the wedding band will look like!

Teddy on

It is beautiful. Question, though: what kind of “design” is needed beyond “take a big honkin” diamond and surround it by other diamonds”. Just asking……..

Is it just me, or are these engagement rings starting to look really similar? I swear that I must’ve read Neil Lane talk about closely designing unique rings with various people a billion times, and his rings always look pretty un-unique to me.

It’s pretty but honestly, it looks like so many other Neil Lane engagement rings that we’ve seen in the past few years. How is this unique?

mary on

It looks like all the other celebrity engagement rings–not too unique at all!

Guy Richie fiance looks to be about 20 something years younger than him….she looks she could be his daughter….such a cliche…how sad:(!
