So breathtaking! We’re getting an even closer look at the stunning, monster diamond that Ryan Lochte gave Kayla Rae Reid during his romantic wedding proposal. It is absolutely gorgeous and HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVE details about the spectacular ring!
Wow, just wow! We’ve seen Kayla Rae Reid‘s gorgeous diamond ring from Ryan Lochte, 32, in Instagram pics, but now we’re getting to see close up just how beautifully crafted the amazing bauble is. HollywoodLife.com spoke to Jay Hariz from Bridal Ring Company in downtown Los Angeles, and the centerpiece is a five carat rectangle shaped stone with a radiant cut. It’s set on a white gold band filled with stunning pave diamonds for some extra sparkle. He says that the couple came in to look at stones together, but Ryan was the one who made the decision on which stone to choose and was instrumental in helping design the roughly $100,000 ring. Jay tells us that Ryan was incredibly gracious and very low key when he came in to shop with Kayla.
The 25-year-old former Playboy model is so head over heels in love with her fiance….and her diamond. When he proposed on Oct. 9 after a whirlwind seven month romance, she posted an Instagram photo marking the moment with the caption, “Speechless. Absolutely beautiful. So in love with YOU.” The next morning she still could believe that she was now engaged to the man of her dreams by posting a pic with a better look at the diamond, saying she was still “dreaming.”

After the closer look at the diamond, we can see why she was left completely speechless, as it is jaw-droppingly stunning. The couple haven’t announced a wedding date just yet, but did get in the martial spirit as they attended fellow Team USA swimmer Camille Adams‘ nuptials Oct. 15 in Texas. He posted numerous pics from the big day and of course he had Kayla by his side the entire time. There’s nothing like getting into the marrying spirit than attending a pal’s wedding!
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Kayla’s ring? How does it measure up to other celebrity engagement rings?
