After four chances at finding love on national TV, Nick Viall found the one in Vanessa Grimaldi on the season finale of The Bachelor this week - and proposed to her with a big diamond ring by resident Bachelor Nation jeweler Neil Lane.

The ring in question features 3.75 carats of diamonds, including a massive round center stone that is surrounded by a halo of smaller diamonds, bordered by two baguette-cut diamonds, and a total of 164 round-cut diamonds throughout the band. "I just closed my eyes and just envisioned her attractive face", Nick told People magazine about the ring. He first appeared on Season 10 of "The Bachelorette" and was rejected by Andi Dorfman. Most noted a lack of connection between Nick and Vanessa as well as unhappy looks on their faces.

"I bring six rings and over the years, over the nine years, some are the same, some have changed settings or are re-designed, and some are totally new", Neil told People.

"The most important thing is for a ring to speak to the particular man and to the woman he is in love with", he said. "It's found its home". A prime example of this would be on Live with Kelly!where it seemed like Vanessa nearly fell off her chair because was leaning away from Nick. In fact, Bachelor Nation wasn't buying it from the moment they saw the couple on the "After the Final Rose" special. In response to Nick's very public revelation, Josh lashed out at him in media interviews.

In recent days, amid rumors that they're back together, Josh has given interviews claiming that he and Amanda are trying to work on their relationship. But, despite that proposal, Nick and Vanessa are not planning a wedding anytime soon.
