Snooki has confirmed that she is not only pregnant, but also she is engaged to Jionni LaValle.
And now we have all the details, from the jewelery designer themselves, about the gorgeous five-carat engagment ring that cost $55,000.
"It was custom-designed by us, and Jionni asked for a certain type of design that he wanted us to put together. It's handmade. You won't see it anywhere else," Ben Bedkas of B&B Jewelers exclusively tells OK!.
"Jionni came in and said, 'I want to get a ring that will look nice and simple but timeless, that will never go out of style.' We did a couple of drawings for him, and he chose one because he just liked the simplicity of it," Ben adds.
Surprsingly, the ring is quite simple and not as blinged-out as you would come to expect from Nicole Polizzi from watching her on Jersey Shore.
"She doesn’t like the big and chunky, gawdy-looking pieces. You can see the diamonds when you look at the side of the ring because they’re all individually set," says Ben. "An engagement ring is a timeless piece, something that doesn’t go out of style. That’s the type of look that he wanted."
And this decision wasn't one that Jionni was taking lightly. The ring has been in the works for months! "He had been talking about it for a long time. She came in here a couple months ago, and she looked at a couple of styles. Of course, she had never seen that particular style of ring. Jionni came up with the design himself," reveals Ben. "He was looking for a ring in about November. Right before Christmas, they came in here, and they were talking about it. We showed him the design, and then we went and put it together, so it kind of took a little while."
And does Ben think Jionni made a good choice? "He spoiled her. He must love her a lot!"
