In the wake of "Bachelor" Ben Higgins' double-love declaration to both JoJo Fletcher and Lauren Bushnell, it was Lauren who ended up with an engagement ring on her all-important finger.
And as it turned out, the sparkler even wielded some helpful decision-making power.
When it came time to propose to one of the two women on this week's "Bachelor" finale, Ben initially said he was still feeling "conflicted" about his decision until he went to see Hollywood jeweler, Neil Lane.
He selected one of Neil's pieces and then, in a voice over, announced, "Looking down at the ring, I know who I'm going to propose to."
Estimated to have cost between $95,000 and $100,000, the bauble's center stone "is a square-cut diamond surrounded by a halo of tiny diamonds," a source tells E! News.
"The total number of carats is 4.6. It's set in platinum and was hand-crafted and designed by Neil Lane," said the insider. "It's a vintage look that reflects Ben's old-fashioned values."
Having found the right multi-digit ring to slip on his lady's finger, Ben proceeded to tell his runner-up, JoJo, "I found love with you, but I found it with somebody else more," before popping the question to Lauren, who responded with a resounding "yes."
Although Ben and Lauren's ring was pricey, it's not the biggest-ticket Neil Lane ring ever scooped up for the "Bachelor" or "Bachelorette" shows.
Last year, Kaitlyn Bristowe got a 3.5 carat diamond and platinum Neil Lane eye-catcher that was estimated by People to have cost about $150,000.
Other rings from the jeweler have had significantly lower price points.
Ben Flajnik gave Courtney Robinson an $85,000 Neil Lane ring in the 16th "Bachelor" finale, for example, while a previous season saw Vienna Girardi land a $50,000 Neil Lane sparkler from Jake Pavelka.
Of course, neither of those couples lasted.
So what happens to the rings when, as is the case in so many "Bachelor" and "Bachelorette"-born relationships, things go south and the fiances split?
After joking that he keeps the discarded rings on a necklace at home, "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison admitted to EW that the rings generally go back to Neil Lane unless the couple's managed to stay together over a period of years prior to breaking up.
