After seven years of marriage, Dean McDermott wanted to change things up a little.

So when he approached L.A. jewelry designer Neil Lane about creating a special anniversary gift for his wife Tori Spelling, McDermott cut to the chase: “Dean wanted something unusual, different and something very special and celebratory,” Lane tells PEOPLE. “Every year he gets Tori a ring to honor a renewal of their vows and this year, their 7th year of marriage, was really important to him. He loves her so much and it had to be special.”

Mission accomplished. After Lane mulled over many designs in short order — “I had less than a week to come up with the perfect gift,” he says — the result was a dazzling ring set in 18k gold with over 150 small rose cut diamonds, for a total of about 3 carats. And the fun part? “It spins around!” says the celebrated jeweler. “It’s a diamond ball, a little diamond world, and Tori can spin it on her finger.”

While the unique effect may be playful, the ring’s meaning is deeply romantic. “Tori and Dean are so interconnected and she is, literally and spiritually, the world to him. I wanted to make a sphere, a world all in diamonds,” says Lane. “To make it sexy, a little Hollywood with a bit of a vintage feel, I put diamonds in it and the spinning movement represents how their worlds revolve around each other.”

When McDermott surprised Spelling with it last week, she was floored. “Tori loved it!” says Lane, who has worked with the couple for years. “Dean is very romantic and sentimental and he totally adores her. The ring represents the significance of their relationship. She rocks his world!”

I like it, it’s unique. I personally wouldn’t wear it, though.

Why does the Instagram one look so much different?

This looks NOTHING like the actual ring, of which she posted a pic on Instagram. The description in the article sounds like the ring shown, but Tori’s ring doesn’t sit up high, have that many diamonds, or have diamonds on the band. :/

Is this an ad for Neil Lane and if so how come it’s not marked as such. If it’s not an ad, why the need for the couple to show off a ring?

I’m still just so perplexed as to why this picture and this article are attached to one another. This is NOT the ring he gave her. Check her instagram pic. They hardly look alike at all.

Seriously, she could NOT live without HIM…she is the center of her own universe…He is great, feel kind of sorry for him

Who puts out a personal gift like this for ALL to critique??
Can these people NOT keep even personal gifts to themselves? I don’t think we need to see this gift- so I won’t tell everyone what I think of it. Very tacky of them indeed!!
