The Bachelor starBen Higgins finally revealed his decision to marry Lauren Bushnellwith the world in the show's highly anticipated finale, and the handsome bachelor gave his bride-to-be some serious new bling. When popping the question to Lauren, Ben presented his lady love with a $100,000 custom made Neil Lane diamond ring.
Lauren's new rock features a three-carat, emerald-cut center stone flanked by two baguette diamonds with a platinum finish. The ring dazzled on the TV screen as Ben dropped down on one knee and asked for Lauren's hand in marriage.
Before the engagement, the software sales rep wasn't certain who he was going to pick. In one of the ABC series' most confusing moments from this season, Ben told both Lauren and JoJo Fletcher that he was in love with them.
As soon as the groom-to-be looked down at the ring, though, he quickly told Neil that he knew who he wanted to become his wife. Before proposing, he was the perfect gentleman and took the traditional route in asking Lauren's father for his stamp of approval.
After sending JoJo Fletcher home, he took out a cell phone from his pocket and called her dad. When he got the "OK" from Lauren's father, Ben pumped his fist in the air and let out a sigh of relief.
During the finale episode, Ben needed a little help from his mom when it came to choosing the love of his life. "I couldn't feel luckier, but I also couldn't be more confused. I just don't know," Ben shared with his mother as they sat at the Sandals resort in Jamaica.
