Ben Higgins might not have gotten happily ever after he was seeking on his season of The Bachelor, but, as it turned out, his true fairytale romance was waiting just around the corner with his now-fiancée Jessica Clark. After months of Higgins dropping hints that a proposal might be coming soon, Clarke shared her good news on Instagram with photos of Higgins on one knee, popping the question. The only thing you might want more than a love story like theirs is an engagement ring like Jessica Clarke’s, because, wow, Higgins really did that.
According to ET News, Higgins had the ring custom made with the help of Gnat Jewelers in Denver, Colorado. It was based on the description Clarke had given him and her mother of what her dream ring would look like. The result was a stunning three-stone ring featuring an estimated 2.5 carat oval diamond, flanked by two half moon shaped diamonds and set in a yellow gold band. The ring is absolutely gorgeous, and Kathryn Money, SVP of merchandising and retail expansion for Brilliant Earth, estimated its value as being between $30,000 and $50,000. Not only is the style of ring eye catching, to say the least, but it’s also meaningful. According to Jewelry Wise, the three stones in the setting symbolize “past, present, and future” or “friendship, love, and fidelity," both beautiful sentiments for a couple embracing a lifelong commitment.
Since Clarke’s ring is custom made, you won’t be able to find one exactly like it for sale anywhere. However, if you're in the market for an engagement ring and want something similar, there are lots of amazing options available. Here are some three-stone engagement rings that are similar in style, but will fit just about any budget.
