Blingtastic! Not every season of The BAchievement, The BacheloretteOr Bachelor in Paradise ends with a diamond engagement ring, but when it does, it’s worth seeing.
The franchise has been providing excellent service over the years. UsEntertainment and glamour thanks to Neil Lane. Season after season, the jewelry designer has crafted the perfect sparkler — each unique for the year’s lucky couple. From Rachel Lindsay‘s 3-carat diamond to JoJo Fletcher‘s oval stunner, it’s hard to pick which ring stands out the most.
In a 2020 interview with Only Natural Diamonds, the diamond expert spoke candidly about his process of crafting the perfect ring.
“Over the years, I have gotten to know the crew and see everyone rooting for love. At some point I started bringing a selection of rings,” Lane said. “It’s like being a sous chef. You don’t know what someone is going to order and there is the briefcase and the knock on the door. What you see on the show is quick, but in reality, it is hours of talking about the ring with the guy selecting it.”
Lane shared his thoughts in an interview with The New York Times in 2019 that he’s a hopeless romantic, and though some Bachelor Nation romances don’t work out — he tries to focus on the immense love they shared on screen when designing jewels.
“It’s all about the love and affection and sharing that people have,” he told the newspaper. “Sometimes it doesn’t work out, with all the pretty finery and the lavish or exotic weddings. It just doesn’t. But for a moment in time, there is a real unity between people, there’s a real magnificent energy that comes out of these people that I’m working with. I focus on that.”
