Every season, Neil Lane has been the guiding hands helping the love-struck stars of The Bachelor find the perfect mega-carat engagement ring for their brides-to-be. Lane also happens to be the man behind all those multi-million dollar diamond creations your favorite stars wear on the red carpet every awards season, meaning these reality show contestants are truly getting the A-list treatment. And as the jeweler told People exclusively in the video above, when it comes to finding that perfect ring for Ms. Right, no two bachelors are quite alike.
Lane’s first big revelation? That Jake Pavelka tried to convince the jeweler to make all the decisions for him — asking Neil to choose both his bride and the ring! And, well, considering how that ended up going, Jake probably would have been better off letting Neil choose after all.
But no surprise here, the award for most decisive couple goes to Kaitlyn Bristowe and Shawn Booth. Lane says from the moment Shawn laid eyes on the ring he ultimately ended up choosing — a round diamond in a square setting with a twisted shank — he was insistent that it was the only one that would do for his would-be bride.

Lane’s pick for his all-time favorite couple goes to Catherine Lowe née Giudici and Sean Lowe, whom he says were “very sincere, very sweet, and down-to-earth.” Finally, the question the jeweler gets asked most often: Are the bachelors actually that excited to go ring shopping? Yep! Neil says he’s found all the gentlemen to be “really committed” — even everyone’s favorite love-to-hate-him “I love you”-phobic, Juan Pablo.
