Jeweler Neil Lane said this 3.5+-carat ring was a "wow ring" with "lots of personality," which the Bachelor picked out for the recipient from the beginning.

One complication: He ended up proposing to a different girl with a different ring first. But after Arie Luyendyk, Jr. broke up with Becca Kufrin and decided to propose to runner-up Lauren Burnham on the After the Final Rose special, "he ended up picking the same one for Lauren that so intrigued him in the first place," Lane said.

The 3.75-carat round-cut diamond, set in a halo and flanked by two baguettes, was described by jeweler Neil Lane as "a classical look ... but also something modern and fashionable."

Nick Viall chose this ring for Vanessa Grimaldi by trusting his gut: "I just closed my eyes and just envisioned her beautiful face. I knew immediately which one was perfect for her," he told PEOPLE. (They broke up five months later.)

The 4.25-carat Art Deco-style ring set with a central radiant-cut diamond and surrounded by over 240 round and baguette cut diamonds was the largest to have been given in the history of the franchise.

The size wasn't the only thing extreme about it: In the middle of selecting it for Lauren Bushnell, "suddenly, without saying anything, [Ben Higgins] just stood up and left,” jeweler Neil Lane tells PEOPLE. “It was very intense. That never happened before.”

Despite starring in a reality show about their courtship, the two couldn't make it last, and split in May 2017.

Chris Soules gave Whitney Bischoff this giant sparkler in season 19, but the ring – and the girl – weren't quite cut out for the farm, and the couple split six months later.

This 3.15-carat, $75,000 Neil Lane ring had extra sparkle thanks to the 164 pavé diamonds inset on a split-shank band.

Sean Lowe delivered the jewelry to a very enthusiastic Catherine Giudici, who eventually also returned the favor with a Neil Lane band on their wedding day.

Lane hoped the nature motifs in Ben Flajnik's $50,000 ring for Courtney Robertson would help their love “bloom,” but Robertson called things off and returned it to the show after about six months.

Lots and lots of bling accented this $50,000, 3-carat Neil Lane ring, which was chosen so that “no matter how she bent her finger, there would be sparkles everywhere you looked,” Lane says.

Brad Womack gave Emily Maynard the glittery gem, but it was “no fairytale” – the couple called it off, a decision that Brad says was “completely my fault.”

The Bachelor who picked this 2.72-carat princess-cut ring also had the honor of being dubbed “the most indecisive” about the choice by Lane.

Perhaps that indecision reflected an inability to commit: Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi parted ways three months after he placed this custom ring (which was reportedly returned to the show) on her finger.

Not only did Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft not make it, he dumped her (while she was wearing the ring!) on the After the Final Rose special. (His new bride, the season's runner-up Molly Malaney, got her own Neil Lane ring years later.)

This 3.5-carat Tacori stunner packs a punch – quite literally, the Bachelor found out.

Mary Delgado reportedly was wearing the ring when she walloped fiancé Byron Velvick after a dispute about a Bachelor TV special. The two did not stay together.

This Chopard solitaire was 2+ carats and conflict-free (not to mention noticeably less ornate than many of the other rings distributed on the show).

Andrew Baldwin and Tessa Horst got the Officer and a Gentleman sendoff – but not the happy ending: The two called it quits after a few months.

This 2.85-carat Tacori sparkler had some of the more ornate scrollwork and diamond settings ever given on the show.

All that bling may explain why Shayne Lamas wanted to keep the ring from her ex, Matt Grant, “in a glass box like a glass slipper.” Matt was not into that.

This 1.2-carat promise ring from Tacori is set in a three-stone style traditionally meant to symbolize past, present and future.

Unfortunately, Charlie O'Connell and Sarah Brice's future ended up being shorter than their past and present, and when they split, she put the ring on eBay.
