I don't think any of us Bachelor Pad fans who've attempted to avoid the spoilers could have guessed that Blakeley Jones and Tony Pieper would be getting engaged on Monday night. I think it's because, well, Blakeley's been so high-emotion and crazy all the time and those qualities don't exactly scream "make me a stepmother." Well, whether or not you think they're cute together (how could you not!?), you can't even TRY to deny that her engagement ring isn't gorgeous.
The 3.5-carat ring is serious. Made by jeweler to all that is reality TV Neil Lane, the main stone is a square cut, with a pave border and double pave band. Is it a lot of bling? Hell yes. It works, though.
Let's take a closer look, eh?
Yeah, in my eyes, it's pretty much perfect. Do I think my actual ring will be 3 1/2 carats one day? I highly HIGHLY doubt it. But a girl can dream, right?
There's a LOT of bling here, but it's not TOO much. I'd choose something simpler like this over a rock similar to Kim Kardashian's engagement ring from Kris Humphries any day. The way that the diamonds are evenly dispersed along the sides and around the square cut make the whole thing look elegant instead of all up in your face. In my eyes, a functional, classic design just makes sense for the everyday woman. Who wants to worry about that big solo rock getting stuck on things. I've got enough other things to stress over. Like what am I gonna nosh on for my afternoon snack, for starters.
Congrats to the happy couple!
What do you think of Blakeley's ring?
