Did ‘Bachelor Winter Games’ Star Clare Crawley Get Becca Kufrin’s Leftover Engagement Ring?
Neil Lane is on the case! Speculation about the source of Bachelor Winter Games star Clare Crawley’s engagement ring has been the hot topic amongst Bachelor Nation, ever since the airing of Arie Luyendyk Jr.’s botched engagement to Becca Kufrin. After seeing the new Bachelorette’s bling, many began speculating that Clare’s engagement ring, which she was given during the Bachelor Winter Games: World Tells All special in February, was the same exact ring.
As OK! readers’ know, Arie ultimately called off his engagement with Becca to date his runner-up Lauren Burnham in January, leaving the couple’s engagement ring in limbo.
While the timing of Arie and Becca’s split and Clare’s late February proposal would have been more than enough time for the alleged “ring swap,” the Bachelor franchise’s house ring designer, Neil Lane, put the ring speculation to rest when he spoke to People about his “similar” designs.
“Both are handmade, and although similar in design, they are not the same ring,” he explained. “On first glance they do look similar.”
Becca’s ring features a 2-carat center diamond with smaller diamonds along the halo, totaling 3 carats. While Claire’s center diamond weighs over 1 carat and also has 84 smaller round diamonds around the stone, her ring weighs a little over 2 carats.
Claire was proposed to by Canadian Bachelorette star, Benoit Beauséjour-Savard, during the BWG: World Tell All special. Despite calling it quits while filming the spinoff show, the couple admitted to secretly dating once the cameras stopped rolling.
