All About Bachelor in Paradise's Ashley Iaconetti's 'Flashy' Engagement Ring from Jared Haibon
Surely, few people deserve a fabulous engagement ring more than Ashely Iaconetti, the Bachelor in Paradise alum who waited three long years for her happily-ever-after with Jared Haibon. And now, after an emotional journey to forever romance, she has just that: a dazzling 2.4 carat diamond and platinum ring.
Handmade by Neil Lane, the ring wowed Iaconetti, 30, when Haiban, 29, recently proposed in Mexico during the upcoming season of BIP, the summer spin-off series where The Bachelor fan faves’ up-and-down relationship began in 2015.
“She lost her mind over the ring,” says Lane, the go-to jeweler for the ABC franchises.
And what’s not to like? The romantic sparkler is set with a rectangular, radiant-cut center stone and surrounded by 86 smaller, full-cut diamonds.
“It’s faceted on the bottom and very sparkly, very prismatic and flashy,” he says. “It’s not subtle.”
With guidance from Haibon, Lane made sure the ring reflected what he saw in his bride-to-be.
“Jared feels she is truly radiant and he wanted the diamonds to go around the center, a circle which reflects eternal love and a continual journey,” says Lane, who had less than three weeks to design and make the ring.
While he’s thrilled Iaconetti gave his handiwork the thumbs up, Lane is mostly pleased to see the pair have made it work. “It’s like their love has come full circle and is only growing,” he says. “For both Ashley and Jared, it was definitely worth the wait.”
