The Bachelor Crowns a New Princess

How do I suffer for diamonds? Let me count the ways – not the least of which is having to sit through The Bachelor finale just to get a glimpse of the rock the dude chose for his soon-to-be- ex-pseudo-fiancee.

Celebrity fav, Neil Lane, is the jeweler of choice for this series – contributing diamond rings for wedded wannabes season after season. This time, the princess-cut won the day.

Bachelor hunk, Jake Pavelka, chose a 2-carat princess-cut diamond to bedazzle his beloved Vienna, with 70 smaller stones surrounding the setting. Not too shabby.

According to Jewelry.com, the ‘princess cut’ is called a square or rectangular modified brilliant in many diamond laboratory grading reports, as it combines the brilliance of a round cut with an overall square or rectangular shape.

Former Bachelorette Deann Pappas chose this cut for her reality show bling, and other celebs like Kendra Wilkinson can be seen with princess-cut diamonds radiating from their ring fingers.

What do you guys think about Jake’s choice (in diamonds and faux fiancee)? A princess for a princess?
