Season 17 of The Bachelorette has concluded with Katie Thurston finding love with Blake Moynes. And, of course, she was presented with a massive diamond engagement ring, from the show’s go-to designer, Neil Lane.
Thurston’s ring is a classic 2000s trend, with a large center oval-cut diamond and a shank set with smaller round-cut stones. In an exclusive interview with E!, Lane describes the engagement ring in detail, sharing that it’s handcrafted and set in platinum, with a diamond that is “centrally set within a crown motif and a hidden diamond halo.” What’s more, the shank is set with more than 90 smaller rounds, equaling a total carat weight of three.
The 2000s are coming back in more ways than just heeled flip flops and terry cloth track suits. Jewelry is harkening back to the decade — especially when it comes to engagement rings. Minimalism was key, with a large center stone void of baguette stones and set on an adorned shank of round-cut stones or pavé diamonds.
Only time will tell whether the duo will make it to the altar, but Thurston sure has a gorgeous engagement ring to represent her future journey there.
