A diamond is forever, but most reality TV engagements aren't. That doesn't mean we can't have some fun revisiting the stunning rings exchanged over the last two years by former Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants, though.

Emily and Jef

Engagement announced: July 2012

Called off: October 2012

Bachelorette Emily, previously engaged to the two-time Bachelor Brad, accepted Jef Holm's proposal and the stunning Neil Lane 2.5-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring he chose for her. The sizable sparkler is accented with 87 smaller round-cut diamonds.
