Kaitlyn Bristowe said ‘yes’ to the most expensive ring (and Shawn, too) in ‘Bachelorette’ history. Get the details on her gorgeous rock, and let us know if you think she made the right decision!
Kaitlyn Bristowe, 30, is officially engaged! The Bachelorette accepted 28-year-old Shawn Booth’s proposal during the show’s season finale, which aired on ABC on July 27. And with Shawn’s proposal came a ginormous 3.5 carat diamond ring from Neil Lane.
After a season full of drama, both of the show’s final contestants, Shawn and Nick Viall, got down on one knee. But only one suitor (and ring) could win Kaitlyn over, and after seeing the gorgeous ring she chose, we can’t say we blame her!
Though Kaitlyn’s engagement ring is reportedly not the biggest in the show’s history (Desiree Hartsck’s was said to be a massive 3.7 carats), at $150,000, it is the most expensive ring on The Bachelorette history. Kaitlyn’s impressive 3.5 carat ring featured a cushion-cut halo with a round center stone. Adding even more sparkle, was the pave diamonds along the elegant, twisted setting.

For her final rose ceremony, Kaitlyn went with classic loose waves and neutral makeup to match her nude dress with lace and sheer detailing by Mac Duggal. Letting her ring be the star of the show, Kaitlyn kept her polish plain with a clear colored manicure.
Ahead of the finale, Kaitlyn teased the big proposal with an Instagram picture from the episode with the caption: “Just contemplating life, before a life altering decision. Who’s going to watch on Monday? @caryfetmanand I picked this finale dress while picking my gown for night one. I saved it for this day.”
