The American reality television show ‘The Bachelor’ and its spin-off TV show ‘The Bachelorette’ have become fixtures of popular culture.
As we all know, the show features a single bachelor dating 25 single women over several weeks, narrowing them down week by week, culminating in a final episode where he selects the lady to whom he declares his undying love and proposes to her with a stunning engagement ring.
While most of us don’t expect a televised romance ending with a $100,000 engagement ring, we can reasonably expect a beautiful engagement ring at a reasonable price.
As the most visible evidence of your engagement and upcoming wedding, you want your engagement ring to make a statement.
And that ring does not have to be a diamond. Perhaps the customary diamond engagement ring is not your style because your taste and style tend to the unconventional. In that case, you can find an engagement ring that is both gorgeous and totally unique. There are many dazzling non-diamond engagement rings available that sparkle just as bright as diamonds.
Your style may have you choosing one of the newest trend of bold and colorful engagement rings, such as the ones which have been embraced by Hollywood celebrity brides such as Reese Witherspoon (pink diamond), , Beyoncé (yellow diamond), and Jessica Simpson (ruby).
If you want all that in your engagement ring but are not ready to break the bank, take a look at this great advice for finding an engagement ring under $10,000 , and then make sure that you get your ring appraised because it is important that you get an appraisal of your engagement ring.
But even if you are won’t be in the market for a $100,000 engagement ring, it is still great inspiration to look at some of those engagement rings from past Bachelor shows.
With that in mind, here are 10 of the top engagement rings from The Bachelorette and The Bachelor, reblogged from the knot:
So what if we have to endure a little heartbreak every time a couple from The Bachelorette or The Bachelor breaks up?
