When Paul McCartney and Nancy Shevell exchanged vows in London on Sunday, Oct. 9, they were clad head to toe in creations by McCartney’s fashion designer daughter, Stella. But one wedding must-have Stella couldn’t provide? The eternity diamond band McCartney slipped on Shevell’s finger during the Town Hall ceremony.
In a vintage style and featuring 5 carats of square-cut diamonds set in platinum, the Neil Lane wedding band was meant to “complement her engagement ring, but not overshadow it,” the celebrity jeweler tells PEOPLE. “Nancy wanted a band with a vintage feel.” Indeed, the band and engagement ring — a 5-plus-carat, flawless diamond art-deco ring also by Lane — “work as a set,” he says. “Paul loved it!”
McCartney’s thumbs up was important to Lane, who says, “Paul is an artist. When we worked on the engagement ring, he took it seriously and was into the stones, shapes and styles — like a kid in a candy store. I could see him imagining what it would look like on Nancy’s finger.” And now McCartney has his answer — sparkling right there on Shevell’s left hand.
