When it came down to choosing a ring for the proposal, Britney Spears with, Sam AsghariYou wanted something meaningful. Instead of purchasing a sparkler in-store, the actor created one for them, creating a ring that symbolizes the unbreakable bond.

GQ in an interview published on Wednesday, June 1, sharing that he wanted something “delicate” and not flashy. “Celebrities get that million-dollar ring. And usually, it’s free because it’s for promotion, but I want it to represent something. I want it to come from my heart.”
Asghari said he decided to “go to someone that wasn’t a big jeweler” who was “willing to do it the way I wanted.” When he found the right company to partner with, Asghari told GQ that he “designed a really beautiful ring. It’s a princess cut, for a real life princess.”
Opening up further about the ring details, Asghari shared that he had Spears’ nickname, Lioness, engraved on the inside of the ring. “It came to me because I always figured the lion is lazy,” he explained. “The male lion has always been the symbol of the king of the jungle. But it’s not true, it’s really the female and she’s very strong and she was very independent. And lioness was a beautiful name that came out of nowhere. So, it’s kind of a nickname, but I don’t call her that every day. It was kind of like a symbol.”
The fitness guru previously explained the nickname in a December 2021 Instagram post, writing: “I call you Lioness because I admire your relentless strength, I’m inspired by your beautiful heart, I celebrate your smile that lights up my world.”
