All the Details on Brittany Cartwright's $70,000 Engagement Ring

We're not ashamed to admit that Bravo shows are one of our absolute guilty pleasures! Specifically, Vanderpump Rules does an excellent job at bringing on the drama that we just can't stop watching. As you may know, last season veteran cast member, Jax Taylor, proposed to his long time girlfriend Brittany Cartwright. Viewers were not only shocked that Jax finally popped the question, but also had lots of questions about THE ring!

Lucky for us Bravo caught up with jeweler Kyle Chan, who gave up all the details on the 3.14 carat cushion cut sparkler— 

 "Designing Jax and Brittany’s ring was very exciting and emotional to me, because they are close friends of mine that I adore," the jeweler shared. "Making their ring was also a bit scary, because you absolutely want to make the perfect ring for people you care about." 

Chan continued: "This ring was specially designed with Brittany in mind. [Jax and Brittany] had an idea of what type of style and diamond they were looking for: micro pave setting around a larger center stone." Cue the dramatic music: A micro pave setting is difficult to nail, Chan said, and "if you miss it by a hair, [the ring] does not end up looking right.”

Found: Lovebirds Who Lost Engagement Ring Down a Times Square Grate

Imagine that you’re on an international vacay with the love of your life and you’ve planned out the perfect proposal moment in Central Park. You get down on one knee, you pop the question, she says YES!, you put the ring on her finger, it’s not yet sized correctly so it slips off her finger, only to land in the depths of an NYC street grate. 

This was literally the nightmare proposal moment that English tourist John Drennan experienced on Friday night. Although the proposal moment might have been disastrous, The New York Times reports the aftermath that will put a smile on your face — 

"The couple, who had gotten engaged in Central Park, flagged down a police officer to report the ring mishap, after trying in vain to recover it on their own. But after waiting for about an hour, the couple walked away — without leaving their names — as the police continued to search for the diamond-and-platinum dazzler.

The ensuing search for the ring by the New York Police Department involved the Emergency Service Unit, Special Operation officers — and a shift change.

By about 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, the police had reported mission accomplished, and then initiated a social media search for the hapless couple that would have made Cinderella blush."

5 Engagement Ring Stones to Consider if You’re On a Budget

When dreaming about your engagement ring, it’s hard not to imagine a flawless white diamond as the focal point. From glittering round shapes to elegant ovals and striking cushion cuts in yellow, white, rose gold, or platinum, every style of engagement ring is synonymous with white diamonds. But, alternative ring styles from colored gemstones to pearl, moonstone, and opal variations are becoming more and more popular for modern brides—especially for those on a budget. But we get it, not every bride wants to eschew tradition to such an unexpected extreme. If you like the idea of saving some cash but want a ring that’s as close to a white diamond as possible, there are a number of spectacular white diamond alternatives for your engagement ring from champagne, grey, and salt and pepper diamonds to white sapphires, moissanite, and morganite.
