It’s no secret that The Bachelorette‘s Trista Sutter loves pink. When she married her firefighter beau Ryan Sutter after the reality franchise’s inaugural season in 2003, Trista, 41, carried a bouquet of pink peonies and their wedding boasted 5,000 yards of pink ribbon. So it was only natural that the color take center stage when Ryan, 39, looked to create the perfect ring for his bride to celebrate their 10 year wedding anniversary.

“Ryan is really romantic and wanted to surprise Trista with something amazing and special,” L.A. jeweler Neil Lane tells PEOPLE exclusively. “He wanted to give her something with extra romance and extra sparkle to show his affection and love for her. She loves pink, which is already a really romantic color.” After texting back and forth and considering a half dozen concepts, Ryan and Lane collaborated on a very glamorous — and, yes, pink –­ diamond ring design.

“The band is entwined, representing Ryan and Trista’s shared love, and we accented it with 16 pink diamonds to give it a little extra sparkle and take it up a notch,” says the celebrity jeweler of the handmade 4-carat ring, which is set with an emerald-cut diamond surrounded by 208 smaller round diamonds. “This is a very glamorous, romantic ring. The one Ryan gave her 10 years ago has so much sentimentality of course but after all these years together, this was an opportunity to give something spectacular and knock her off her feet.”

Mission accomplished. “Trista loved, loved the ring,” Lane says, adding that the duo, who renewed their vows last month for an ABC special which aired Sunday night, are still madly in love. “There’s a mutual glow between them. After 10 years, they’re more in love than ever!”

Its gorgeous but do you just switch it out for your original engagement ring?? That seems so shallow (well maybe not when ABC bought your original ring haha).

It is nice to see that in 10 years + the show had one couple that truly fell in love. The odds don’t seem to be too good for this show.

I am sure they didnt pay for this ring either. Especially when you hear the name Neil Lane dropped!

How does a fireman afford a 4 carat diamond ring?????

The ring is beautiful! I couldn’t tell there was pink in it when they showed it on TV last night during the special, but I think it is gorgeous and the pink is perfectly suiting for Trista…not only because she loves pink but as a reminder of their wedding day (which included lots of pink!).

I’m sure Trista will still wear the other ring…possibly on her
other hand. They both seem very sentimental. Beautiful “Anniversary” ring… no matter who paid for it. I love this couple.
They seem to live with more “reality” in their world than the others
have done and just absolutely love each other. Another “Fairy Story” come true. Yes, I’m sentimental.

@deanna Ashley & JP and Jason & Molly (despite the controversy) are married and seem to be very in love. I’m also willing to bet the same thing about Sean & Catherine. They seem to have a great relationship and have already defied the odds by preparing to get married next weekend. Many people thought they wouldn’t make it that far.

Couples like Trista & Ryan and those listed above prove the show can work when the people are in it for the right reasons.
