14 Rings Inspired by ‘The Bachelor’ That Don’t Cost Six Figures

I can’t believe another season of The Bachelor ended with another Hannah having to give back a custom-made engagement ring. I don’t know about you, but nothing would cure the sting of a breakup quite like $80,000 worth of platinum and diamonds.

According to Chris Harrison, if a Bachelor couple makes it only a few months before breaking up, the custom-made rings—often valued at around $100,000—go back to their creator, the iconic celebrity jewelry designer Neil Lane.

With a price tag like that, it’s no wonder Bachelor Nation is so obsessed with these winning rocks. Even Lane himself has a favorite. “I will admit that the pear-shaped ring Bryan Abasolo gave to Rachel Lindsay holds a special place in my heart,” Lane tells Glamour. “My mother had a similar diamond that I grew up admiring, and it’s inspired a number of my pear-shaped designs in both my Couture collection and my collection at Kay Jewelers.”

Wait, so it is possible to find a ring that matches your Bachelorette-inspired Pinterest board without all those zeroes on the tag? Yup! And Lane has some thoughts on which specific rings you should look for heading into 2020 (even if you’re just planning a dream engagement in your head).

“It’s only fitting that ‘modern’ designs are one of the biggest trends of 2020,” Lane says. “They blend the old and the new, glamour and simplicity. Some of the most popular styles combine straight lines, contrasting stones, and unconventional details, adding an unconventional twist to an otherwise classic look.”

So if you’re looking for a ring that screams, “Will you accept this rose?” here are 14 options based on Bachelor Nation favorites that won’t cost you $100,000. The best part: You don’t have to actually date more than one person at a time or sign any contracts to get them.

So, obviously, that pairing didn’t end well… but the 3.27-carat ring, featuring a pear-shaped diamond, surrounded by 99 round brilliant-cut stones and set in a platinum band, was beautiful while it lasted.
