Vanessa Grimaldi is engaged—again! Things may not have worked out between her and Nick Viall following the proposal on season 21 of The Bachelor, but things seem to be falling right into place for Grimaldi. She announced her engagement yesterday (Aug. 10) via Instagram to boyfriend Josh Wolfe featuring a beautiful piece of bling.
The scene: Romantic-lit candles lining the staircase of Saint-Louis Gate, a castle-like landmark in Quebec City, Canada. An accordion player performed songs, including "A Whole New World" from Aladdin. The couple wore jeans and looked every bit in love.
But back to the bling…
We spoke with Kathryn Money, SVP, Merchandising & Retail Expansion for Brilliant Earth who provided insights on the ring’s classic beauty. “Vanessa’s stunning engagement ring features an estimated 1-carat oval shaped diamond with two side stones, each estimated at ¼ carat each, set on an 18k yellow gold band,” says Money.
Wolfe had this designed at a local jeweler in Montreal. So, what does a beauty like this run you ask? “Depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the center gemstone, we estimate the cost of the ring at approximately $8,000 to $20,000,” adds Money.

32-year-old Grimaldi spoke to PEOPLE about the surprise proposal, "I knew we were going to get engaged eventually, but I had no idea it was going to happen when it did.”
"Josh is the first person I am with where I am at complete ease and where I never second-guessed his love for me. I’ve been ready to say YES! I am the luckiest woman!"
