On tonight’s finale episode of The Bachelorette 2018, Garrett Yrigoyen sat down with famous jewelry designer Neil Lane to pick out his intended future wife’s ring. When Yrigoyen sat down with Neil Lane, he decided to pick a ring that had a stone on either side of the center diamond, representing the couple’s past, present and future.
Jewelry designer Lane once told USA Today:
I make these rings with love and compassion, and really hoping that these people stay together. And, what happens afterwards? I don’t know. If they break up, the ring, it goes to ring heaven. There are a bunch of rings in ring heaven and God is watching them — and probably trying them on!
For many seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Lane has designed the rings for the franchise, but, according to Radar Online, engagement rings on the show contractually belong to the show. So, if the engagement does not work out within two years, the rings reportedly have to go back to ABC. Bustle has reported that if the break up occurs after two years and the couple decides to sell it, ABC gets the first chance to buy it back.
When Arie Luyendyk Jr. proposed to Kufrin on The Bachelor 2018, Us Weekly reported that he chose a ring that was a 4-carat platinum-set diamond ring worth $80,000.
