If JoJo Fletcher had any doubts about her choice on Monday's season finale of The Bachelorette, we're sure the diamond engagement ring Jordan Rodgers proposed with squashed them with its shine. We're not saying the woman is shallow, but have you seen that thing?! The new beautiful bauble that has since taken up residence on Fletcher's finger is sparkly enough to stop traffic! It's been two whole days now since we watched Rodgers get down on one knee, and we're still not over that engagement ring. Where do we get one of those beauties?! From Neil Lane, of course — the resident ring designer of The Bachelor franchise. But unfortunately, it comes with a price tag just as hefty as everyone's hatred for this season's villain, Chad Johnson. (Sorry, Chad...)
As per usual with all Bachelor and Bachelorette cast members, Rodgers enlisted the help of jewelry designer Neil Lane (good gig he's got there, right?) to create the perfect engagement ring for his future bride-to-be. And as always, Lane came through. The former football quarterback eventually settled on a platinum sparkler featuring an oval-cut center stone surrounded by a halo of over 155 pavé diamonds. Le sigh...
"I knew right away which one I wanted for her," Rodgers told People of his spot-on choice. The engagement ring weighs in at 3.75 carats, according to E! News, and cost an estimated — wait for it... — $100,000. Yep. Just imagine all the rose ceremony roses you could buy with that kind of dough.
"It's stunning and classic," mused Fletcher of her new engagement ring. And Neil Lane himself also approves of the stunning sparkler, saying "Jordan loved the sparkle around the band. And it was clear he's madly in love with JoJo. He's smitten."
And now, a few months after Rodgers popped the question and the to-be-wed pair filmed the finale, he's still smitten! The reality TV couple recently just celebrated their first official date outside of the Bachelorette mansion. (They were forced to keep their relationship a secret until the show aired.) No more elaborate helicopter rides, roses, and champagne for these two, as their über-casual date night consisted of matching sneakers, burgers, and fries, all of which Fletcher documented on her Snapchat.
Hey, just because the bride-to-be has 100k wrapped around her finger, doesn't mean the to-be-wedded couple can't go on a cheap date every now and then!
