Where do those infamous Neil Lane engagement rings go when an engagement breaks off on The Bachelor?
The Bachelor has seen its share of failed relationships, and very few have gone on to see a successful, fruitful future. That may sound sad, but that’s the risk with a reality show of this nature. There are no guarantees that things will work out, but when they do–it’s beautiful!
Having said that, we’ve come to know and love the sparkly, bright, shiny Neil Lane engagement rings that are given to contestants that are ready to pop the big question. But what happens when an engagement breaks off? Where do those rings go? Thanks to former Bachelorette Becca Kufrin, we have the answer!
If anyone knows what a breakup feels like, it’s Kufrin. She and Arie Luyendyk Jr. were engaged at the end of The Bachelor season 22 finale. However, he broke up with her live on-camera and ended up with one of the other contestants. It was quite the brutal thing to witness, and I think many of us are still having cringe attacks from that horrible reveal.
As such, Kufrin claims there’s a “ring graveyard” of sorts where producers hang onto the rings from broken relationships of the past. I wonder how much that pile could be valued at–just out of curiosity.
While on the Bachelor Party podcast, Kufrin dished all the secrets behind this alleged graveyard of rings.
They get to keep them all locked away, hidden from everyone — all the scorned rings.
I mean, are we surprised? Those Neil Lane rings can cost up to $100,000! There is no way anyone is just going to walk away with one of those unless they’re getting married.
According to Kufrin, The Bachelor contract states that if a couple doesn’t remain together for a couple of years following the finale, the ring must be returned.
Given the number of broken engagements on The Bachelor, I can’t imagine what that “ring graveyard” must look like. Could we get a little peek, perhaps?
