Who is Neil Lane from the Bachelor?

Neil Lane is the jewelry designer that is behind nearly every engagement ring that has appeared on The Bachelor franchise.

The Brooklyn-born jewelry maker, who moved to Paris to pursue his passion, has crafted pieces for some of Hollywood's elite.

Neil has an affinity for vintage jewels, and "he has influenced the style and design of contemporary jewelry making over the last 20 years," according to his website.

He currently works and lives in Los Angeles where he has an established reputation as both a jewelry collector and creator.

Renee Zellweger, Reese Witherspoon, and Jennifer Hudson are just a few actresses that have donned Neil's jewels at the Golden Globes and Oscars.

He has created sparkling engagement rings for Ellen DeGeneres and Jessica Simpson.

What is his net worth?

Neil Lane has a net worth of $20million according to Celebrity Net Worth.

The Neil Lane flagship store is located in the Melrose Place district of Los Angeles.

Lane has also designed pieces of jewelry for Barbra Streisand, Angelina Jolie, Elizabeth Taylor, Charlize Theron, and Demi Moore.

How much do his Bachelor rings cost?

Price range is dependent on setting and diamond.

Jef Holm's 2.5-carat ring for Emily Maynard allegedly cost $68,000, while Ben Higgins allegedly gave Lauren Bushnell a diamond that cost about $100,000.

Although Bachelor contestants can choose to purchase their own rings for their brides-to-be, most choose to propose with a Neil Lane sparkler which the company donates in exchange for television publicity.

Neil told In Style of his Bachelor creations that "I make each and every ring… with the couple’s lasting love in mind."

"It’s my hope that the spark between them lasts forever. And if it doesn’t, I like to think that the ring goes to heaven."

What happens to the Bachelor rings if the couple break up?

The often six-figure Neil Lane rings are covered in Bachelor contract stipulations.

Reportedly, if the Bachelor couple splits before the two-year mark, ABC gets the ring back, according to Radar Online.

The contract specifies that the rings "remains the property of the show’s producers," for a minimum of 24 months.

If the contestant chooses to auction it off, ABC gets priority and are "obliged to tell the network and given them written notice of more than a week."
