The Bachelorette Emily Maynard chooses Jef Holm

Jul 24, 2012

This season of The Bachelorette was not without drama, but the stunning star Emily Maynard did find love at last. Maynard chose Jef Holm, who got down on one knee and gave Maynard a dazzling engagement ring.

According to Us Weekly, the stunning sparkler is designed by Neil Lane and sports a 2.5-carat center square-cut diamond and it is set on a pave diamond band - the total weight of the ring is about 3.5 carats and cost $68,000.

One thing's for sure, when Holm got down on one knee, the single mom hesitated before saying yes, but she claims it was simply to enjoy the moment, People Magazine reports.

"It was kind of a surprise because we've never really talked about an engagement, even though I should have known," Maynard said on Good Morning America. "Really I just wanted to soak in the moment and really make a decision for my heart…take in the moment and remember it."

Even though every fashionista cannot afford this sparkler, it is possible to purchase something similar with fashion jewelry such as the Platinum Over Sterling Silver DiamonUltra Cubic Zirconia Wedding Ring Set for a fraction of the cost.
