When Roberto Martinez proposed to Ali Fedotowsky in Bora Bora on Monday night’sÂ season finale ofÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelorette, he placed a stunning, sparkly diamond engagement ring on her finger. In all the hype and excitement over their romantic relationship and newfound love, not much attention was paid to the bling. We’ve got the scoop on the Neil Lane engagement ring that Ali Fedotowsky is now sporting.
The ring was custom designed by celebrity favorite jeweler, Neil Lane specifically for Ali Fedotowsky. The jeweler met with The Bachelorette a few weeks prior to the final rose ceremony to find out more about her tastes and what rings “made her eyes light up.” Neil Lane says, â€œI wanted to make Aliâ€™s dream come true.” After meeting with her, Lane spent weeks handcrafting a ring that would be a good representation of Ali.Â â€œShe was both very girly and sophisticated at the same time,â€ he says about the Bachelorette.
As for the ring itself, it’s center stone is a 3.03-carat asscher-cut diamond. It’s accented byÂ 184 round brilliant cut diamonds around the band. The estimated value of the stunning sparkler is $50,000!
Neil Lane presented the finished ring, along with several other options, to Roberto Martinez the day of the final rose ceremony in Bora Bora. To Neil Lane’s amazement, Roberto immediately chose the jeweler’s first choice ring to present to Ali Fedotowsky. Neil Lane says Roberto was “so excited to propose.” After the engagement, Neil Lane had a chance to spend a little time with the sweet couple in Bora Bora.Â â€œThey were so happy!â€ says Neil Lane. â€œThey were like love birds!â€
