It's an engagement ring fit for a reality TV queen! Lala Kent of Vanderpump Rules got engaged to boyfriend Randall Emmett this weekend while vacationing in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. With the proposal involving a romantic homemade video followed by a fireworks show, the 28-year-old's new sparkler is undoubtedly fit to match the over-the-top celebration.

Kent flaunted the round ring September 1 via Instagram, and the couple's jeweler, Richie Rich of Leon Diamond in New York, recently spilled all of the juicy jewel details. Rich revealed to Us Weekly that he and Emmett, 47, had spent six months collaborating on the perfect "clean and classy" diamond. While Rich added that the recently betrothed couple had previously shopped for rings together, the future bride "had no idea that it was coming."

"He didn’t want anything too gaudy or too outrageous," Rich said of Emmett's finished product. "He flew in about three to four times before purchasing the ring and making sure it was the right stone. We sat and designed the ring a few times until it came out perfectly."

As for the logistics, the 18K white gold sparkler totes a whopping six carats and an even more extraordinary price tag—within the ball park of $150,000, according to Rich. The diamond's round shape also bore special significance.

"Love goes in a circle and it doesn’t stop," Rich said. "He wanted to make sure that it doesn’t end."

It seems their hard work paid off—Emmett posted an Instagram story last night of his soon-to-be wife flaunting her shimmery bauble. "What is that...thing?" he jokingly asked Kent from behind the camera. "It's just a present my fiancé gave me," she jauntily responded. "I love it, I'm so happy."

Rich concurred, adding that Kent, "just has no words." "She is just shocked," he said. "She’s very shocked. She’s thanking me and saying, 'Richie, this is the most stunning thing I’ve ever seen. Thank you so much.'"

With a ring this extravagant, there's no telling what Lala Kent and Randall Emmett's actual wedding will have in store!
