Last night after the emotional Bachelor finale, Ben Higgins could finally show off his new fiancé and final rose recipient, Lauren Bushnell. Bushnell has been hiding that seriously amazing Neil Lane diamond engagement ring for all this time, but now that ring is back where it belongs — on her finger and in the spotlight!
We've been obsessing over the platinum engagement ring that Higgins selected ever since we first saw it, and now, finally, we have all the details. "The center stone is a square-cut diamond surrounded by a halo of tiny diamonds," a source dished to E! News. "The total number of carats is 4.6." A ring like that doesn't come cheap — it reportedly cost a cool $95,000.

During her appearance on After the Final Rose, Bushnell couldn't have been more excited to show off her new bridal bling — and fiancé. She had the biggest smile on her face, totally complemented by her stunning lace dress (which we hope was a hint at her bridal style!).

Despite the fanfare, the newly public couple remained quiet on their wedding plans, and even turned down the chance to say "I do" on TV during the show! The always-full-of-surprises Chris Harrison flew in Higgins' pastor and tried to coax the couple into exchanging vows. Despite Harrison's best efforts, the duo passed — but they did promise that a wedding was coming soon.
Personally, we're hopeful that a TV wedding is in their future — perhaps we'll even get two Bachelor weddings in one year to obsess over. Former Bachelorette Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth have yet to set a date, but the two have hinted that wedding bells might be on the horizon. But with Bachelor in Paradise coming up and Ben's runner-up Jojo officially being announced the new Bachelorette, we have a feeling Bachelor Nation will still be getting its fix of on-screen romance, even if it isn't from the Bristowe-Booth wedding.
