See the Classic Engagement Ring Derek Peth Gave Taylor Nolan on Bachelor in Paradise
It's almost paradise
Sure, this season of Bachelor in Paradise was marked by drama, tears and the Corinne Olympios/DeMario Jackson controversy, which temporarily shut down production. But, through it all, one couple did find their happily-ever-after: Taylor Nolan and Derek Peth. Proposing to the mental health counselor during Monday night’s Paradise finale, Peth gave Nolan a gorgeous 2-carat diamond ring from Neil Lane, the Bachelor franchise’s go-to jeweler. “I did not actually meet with Derek, so it was important for me to better understand him and his personality – and of course Taylor’s as well,” says Lane, who got a feel for the smitten duo by chatting with the show’s producers. “What I gathered was that he was more traditional yet he also liked the idea of a romantic ring.”
It came down to two choices: a vintage-inspired rose gold ring with tiny diamond details and a classic platinum ring set with a center round diamond. Peth, who appeared on JoJo Fletcher’s season of the Bachelorette, went for the latter style, which is also accented by two trapezoid and two tapered baguette-cut diamonds.
“He decided it best suited Taylor,” says Lane. “And Derek really liked that it felt more traditional and classic, but still had a mid-century vibe.” Turns out, Peth was spot-on. Lane adds: “She loved it!”
