Well that’s awkward. Nick Viall absolutely loved the 3.75 carat ring he picked out for Vanessa Grimaldi, but he wasn’t the first to choose it. Robby Hayes, the runner up from JoJo Fletcher’s season of ‘The Bachelorette,’ actually chose the exact same one!
Nick Viall picked a stunning round brilliant center stone set in platinum engagement ring for Vanessa Grimaldi; it was priced at $95,000, our source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY following the engagement.”When he [Nick] first saw the rings, he was drawn to the classic design and how it stood out, he looked at it time and time again and spent a lot of time with it. He kept coming back to it,” our source added.
Well, Neil Lane knows Nick well — he probably knew what he was looking for! “I just closed my eyes and just envisioned her beautiful face,” Nick told People magazine about the ring. “I knew immediately which one was perfect for her.” We can assume Robby Hayes thought the same about JoJo Fletcher — last season, he chose the same one. Bachelor fan Claudia Oshry was the first to point it out on Instagram.
“I bring six rings and over the years, over the nine years, some are the same, some have changed settings or are re-designed, and some are totally new,” Neil told People. “The most important thing is for a ring to speak to the particular man and to the woman he is in love with. If a ring doesn’t speak to one person, then it wasn’t meant to be. If that particular ring wasn’t meant to find a home with JoJo, but rather spoke to Nick and Vanessa, then that’s the way it should be. It’s found its home.”
You may remember JoJo chose Jordan Rodgers and got engaged to him on The Bachelorette finale; he picked out a simpler ring for her — a 3-carat oval-shaped diamond on encrusted band with over 155 smaller round diamonds.
HollywoodLifers, do you love the ring?
