On the finale of The Bachelor on ABC March 11, Lowe popped the question to Catherine Giudici with a 3.15 ct. ring designed by Hollywood fave Neil Lane. The vintage-inspired diamond and platinum ring features a cushion-cut center surrounded by 164 smaller round diamonds. Let’s just hope these lovebirds don’t fall victim to the “Neil Lane Curse.”
