Kaitlyn Bristowe’s engagement ring is stunning – and huge! After the former Bachelorette posted pics of the gorgeous diamond, Bachelor nation could not stop buzzing.
“I had an idea of the kind of cut she wanted, but other than that, it was kind of just, like, go,” Kaitlyn’s fiance Jason Tartick, 32, told Entertainment Tonight.
Paris Jewellers, a Canadian jewelry company, is “great … and they put so much effort into [making it]. They even took designs from Kaitlyn’s dresses, and red carpets, to see what she likes, like working lace in, because she wears a lot of lace. They gave it a Kaitlyn, kind of like an edgy feel, but still classic.” We’re so jealous!
Though Kaitlyn’s engagement ring is amazing, her road to happiness wasn’t always easy. Kaitlyn, 35, got engaged to Shawn Booth on her season of The Bachelorette. But in the fall of 2018 they split “after thoughtful, respectful consideration,” they told People.
Kaitlyn opened up about the breakup on E!’s LadyGang podcast in May 2019. “He didn’t know why he couldn’t love me. I just think the show was too hard for someone to get over,” she explained. “I don’t know, that’s what I’m going off of.”
She confirmed that Shawn Booth left her. The split came three years after Shawn and Kaitlyn got engaged on the Season 11 finale of The Bachelorette in 2015. “After three incredible years, we have decided to go our separate ways,” the couple said in a 2018 statement.
“Just kidding, he left me,” Kaitlyn finally admitted on the podcast. The decision was not as amicable as originally believed.
Now she’s no longer worrying about her past relationships. Instead she’s admiring her new ring. “I love it, it’s perfect. I’ve been staring at it all day,” Kaitlyn said of her new bling. She admitted that she had no idea that Jason was going to propose. “Luckily, I got my nails done the day before, but these are some funky nails!”
Jason got on one knee in Nashville, Tennessee on Monday afternoon, and the couple posted photos celebrating the occasion on Instagram. “Don’t pinch me,” Kaitlyn Bristowe captioned her gallery of Instagram pics.
She and Jason showed off the bling in several loving poses. Tartick said: “Engaged AF! Haha let’s go!! Love you babe!”
Friends who were on The Bachelor, including Katie Thurston and Pete Weber, could not stop gushing. “I’m so happy for you guys!!” Katie wrote. Right below that is Bachelor star Pete expressing his excitement: “So happy for you two!!” It seems that the ABC franchise is a tight-knit group, all incredibly eager to bask in the successful adventure in love of fellow co-stars.
“So wonderful!!!!!! AND THAT RING!!!!!!!” Ali Fredotowsky commented on the post. It seems Jason dug deep in his wallet and picked out a massive rock to land the Bachelorette star and Canada native.
In his own Instagram post, Jason Tartick remarked that “Choosing [Kaitlyn Bristowe] forever is the most important decision in the world.” He said that she “made that decision so easy! Love you to death and forever.”
It wasn’t long before more Bachelor franchise members came out of the woodwork, including ex-host Chris Harrison. “Well done brother,” Chris wrote. Bachelor nation could not be more excited.
