Well, the season 22 of the Bachelor has been quite the journey for Arie Luyendyk Jr. who started out dating 29 women on national television. He whittled his choice down to two women (Becca Kufrin and Lauren Turnham) and proposed to one of the ladies — and as we reported, later broke it off with them after a few weeks. And now, we have the details on the engagement ring he gave his now ex-fiance.
According to a show insider, Arie popped the question and gave one of the finalist a nearly 4-carat platinum-set diamond ring worth $80,000. More details: it’s a halo ring with diamonds surrounding the stunning center stone.
As we previously reported, the 36-year-old proposed to one of the women on the season 22 finale, only to break off the engagement within a few weeks.
Luyendyk had a change of heart, according to a show insider who explained to Us that he began to think he’d picked the safer option.
Once he had broken it off with his original finance, the Bachelor immediately flew off to the runner-up’s hometown to beg her to take him back. Will it last? Only time will tell. But in the meantime, check out the other engagement rings that this bauble now joins in The Bachelor Hall of Fame.
Tune in for the Bachelor finale on Monday, March 5 on ABC at 8 p.m. ET to catch a sight of the sparkler yourself.
