He liked it so he put a ring on it! Fans are still getting over the outrage over the shocking season finale of ABC's The Bachelor after Arie Luyendyk Jr. picked Becca Kufrin, proposed to her, then broke up with her on national television, only to come back groveling to his runner-up Lauren Burnham. But he shocked fans when he got down on one knee again and proposed to Lauren during part two of the After the Final Rose special with a gorgeous diamond engagement ring — and the Neil Lane sparkler is very different from the ring Arie chose for Becca.
Arie proposed to the 25-year-old tech salesperson during the live after show with a handmade cushion-cut diamond in a platinum setting that was surrounded with halo of smaller diamonds, according to E! News. As if that wasn't enough bling, the ring also features 170 small, round-cut diamonds, and two baguette diamonds — so the ring is set with diamonds on all three sides at a total of 3.65 carats.

Lauren's ring is starkly different from Becca's ring even though they were both designed by the same person — celebrity jeweler Neil Lane. For the 27-year-old publicist, Arie went with a more simple but elegant 3-carat oval diamond ring surrounded by other smaller diamonds that had a more vintage feel.
But just like Arie was indecisive and couldn't choose between his final two, Neil revealed that Arie was also indecisive when it came to picking out the engagement ring.

"We talked for a long time and while I didn’t know exactly what he was thinking at the time, he did seem so torn, conflicted, very serious and under a lot of pressure," Neil revealed to People. "Arie picked a gorgeous ring for Becca and genuinely spoke so highly of her, but he kept coming back to this other ring and saying how perfect it would be for this other girl — who it turns out was Lauren." Watch the video below to see proof that Becca knew her relationship with Arie wouldn't end well!
