For those of you who have been living under a rock for the past 24 hours, it’s about high time you learned that Emily Maynard is happily engaged to Jef Holm. During the season finale of The Bachelorette on Monday night, Jef asked for Emily’s hand in marriage. But while this is the third time Emily has accepted a proposal (she was briefly engaged to racecar driver Ricky Hendrick in 2004 before he passed away, and then walked away as Brad Womack’s fianceé after Season 15 of The Bachelor), this seems like the first time Emily has put on a ring that could possibly last her a lifetime.
And even if she has rocked a Neil Lane gem before (Brad gave her one that different reports valued between $50,000 and $90,000) — this new Neil Lane stunner seems like the winner. The emerald-cut diamond, that is roughly 3.5 carats, is estimated to be worth somewhere between $60,000-70,000, a jewelry expert tells Hollywood.com.
Take a look at the diamond below and tell us you aren’t jealous. While Emily may not be an A-list celebrity, she is still sporting a pretty expensive blinger!
