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!”

NO way in a million years did he pay for this ring…… All part of the deal, just like when they did it the first time around.

Hmmm… was this ring free as well?

Wish these two more happy years to come! I met my husband unconventionally, via a 3 minute date aka speed dating! We just celebrated 10 years also. It can happen to anyone but there is a lot of work to do in any marriage.

Beautiful. I am so happy to see the two of you together with your two beautiful children. Hopefully, many more years to come of happiness.

Fairly generic in my opinion. Looks like every other celebrity ring.

I really love this couple but as friend and I were discussing yesterday, couples who usually renew vows don’t last the distance. Maybe a last attempt to salvage a marriage. I really hope this is not true with this couple. The ring is to die. Who cares if Ryan didn’t pay for it? Best of luck to them and their family.

I think this one is more sentimental because he bought it, chose it, and paid for it himself…and it is built on shared memories and a family. It shows their love is deep and everlasting

How does a firefighter afford THAT?!! They only make $60-80,00 a year. Good for her tho. Got a hottie and a ring. Point Trisha.

Clearly, the show continues to promote itself with Ryan and Trista. They are the only couple that has found success ON the actual show they were on together. This ring was not paid for by Ryan.

Oh my my my….goodness! I love it. As my birthstone is opal or pink diamonds! I wish them many years to come. My hubby designed mine for our 35th anniversary, and I love it!
