We now have new details on Catherine Giudici’s gorgeous engagement ring! Its a 3.15-carat platinum cushion cut diamond in a cushion shaped halo with a pave-diamond-encrusted split-shank setting!!! It features a center diamond set with 164 smaller round diamonds. Now that is some serious bling!!!
According to People Magazine when Neil Lane landed in Chiang Rai, Thailand, he came with six engagement rings to show Bachelor Sean Lowe (one has to wonder if any of them are the rings returned last season by Emily Maynard, Courtney Robertson or Blakeley Shea-Ha!).
“Sean took it very seriously and looked carefully at each of his choices — including round- and princess-cuts — but once he saw the cushion-cut stone with all the romantic details, he knew this one was perfect,” …. “When he made his choice — of the ring, and of which woman he was picking — he was absolutely certain.”
Neil Lane also remarked:
“He was really into it and loved that the cushion-cut was soft and romantic, with a vintage vibe that connected the modern and the past. It resonated with him since it combined Catherine’s sensibility as a modern woman with an appreciation for the past, and older things.”
One has to wonder if Catherine had a preview of potential engagement rings and gave him a gentle push in the right direction. It’s hard to imagine guys knowing anything at all about engagement rings but I love that Neil describes Sean as having very refined engagement ring sensibilities–thanks Neil for having his back.
“Sean was so great to work with — one of the nicest, most sincere guys and a real gentleman,” …. “And most importantly, he was confident he had found the love of his life in Catherine. I’m so happy for them!”
