'The Bachelor' Engagement Ring: All the Details!

When jewelry designer Neil Lane landed in Chiang Rai, Thailand, he came bearing six engagement rings to show Bachelor Sean Lowe.

“Sean took it very seriously and looked carefully at each of his choices — including round- and princess-cuts — but once he saw the cushion-cut stone with all the romantic details, he knew this one was perfect,” says Lane, of the 3.15-carat platinum-and-diamond sparkler Lowe slipped on Catherine Giudici’s finger during his teary-eyed proposal on the show finale. “When he made his choice — of the ring, and of which woman he was picking — he was absolutely certain.”

Lowe was eager for the vintage-inspired ring to reflect Giudici’s “style, spirit and fashion sense,” says Lane. “He was really into it and loved that the cushion-cut was soft and romantic, with a vintage vibe that connected the modern and the past. It resonated with him since it combined Catherine’s sensibility as a modern woman with an appreciation for the past, and older things.”

The ring, which a giddy Giudici calls “classic and timeless,” features a center diamond exquisitely set with 164 smaller round diamonds. “Sean was so great to work with — one of the nicest, most sincere guys and a real gentleman,” says the celebrated designer, pictured below with Lowe. “And most importantly, he was confident he had found the love of his life in Catherine. I’m so happy for them!”

It looks almost like the ring Brad Womack gave Emily Maynard a few seasons ago!

Pretty, but they all look the same!

The ring is perfect for Catherine. It’s beautiful! They make a great couple, hope they have a very blessed life.

Why do the rings always look the same on these shows?!?

I agree that it looks like the ring from Brad to Emily and it probably is. I’m sure the network recycles once they are returned following the inevitable breakups. We’ll eventually see it again in an upcoming season.

although a very beautiful and thought out decision on Sean’s part, it’s not about the ring, it’s about the couple. They are a beautiful couple. I hope it really lasts.

I love Sean and Catherine together, she’s just way more ambitious than Lindsay, also, she sounds smarter than her.

Another one to wed and divorce…..what a SHAM.

Funny…I went back through the prior articles on Brad and Emily and the picture of their ring is the exact same as this one. (I know…way too much time on my hands.) Now I want to check more and see if it is always the same ring.

Ben and Courtney had the same ring as well.
