Hannah Brown got engaged to Jed Wyatt on the season finale of The Bachelorette, which aired on Tuesday.
He presented her with a diamond ring from jeweler Neil Lane that looks to be worth about $80,000. Rings from past Bachelor and Bachelorette shows have been estimated to cost from $50,000 from $95,000.
But the 24-year-old former beauty queen had to take the rock off after she split from Wyatt after rumours he did not have the best intentions.

The total approximate weight of all diamonds is 3 carats and it was hand made in platinum, designed and signed by Lane himself, added the site.

It is not known what happens to the ring once an engagement is called off. The Bachelorette contract reportedly reads that the ring must be returned to the show if there are no plans for marriage.
After getting engaged to Jed, 25, she learned that he lied to her about having a girlfriend immediately prior to the taping of the show.
‘I am not with Jed anymore,’ she told host Chris Harrison, 48, as she filmed the show’s follow-up After The Final Rose in a Los Angeles studio.
The ring: The engagement ring started to lose its meaning for Hannah
‘The engagement’s over. We’re not together,’ Hannah added.
‘That’s not what I said ‘yes’ to,’ she continued, as the audience of mostly female fans burst into wild applause.
To truly close the book on the relationship, she then asked his competition, fan favorite Tyler Cameron, 26, out on a date.
The revelation that Nashville singer/songwriter Jed had been dating someone right before he met her had totally devastated Hannah, and made her wonder whether he had simply used her to promote his career.

Getting emotional: Hannah wiped away tears during the live After The Final Rose follow up
The past few weeks had been ‘really difficult’ for the Tuscaloosa, Alabama-born former beauty queen.
‘I have sobbed on the floor,’ she admitted. ‘I felt like my whole life just caved in, and everything that I thought was true and real wasn’t. I have been mad as hell, and just questioning what happened.’
‘But I’ve gotten a lot stronger through it,’ she said.

It was clearly not the storybook ending that Hannah would have chosen for herself, and it capped a season filled with hard choices.
As the final season 15 episode opened on the island of Crete, in Greece, Hannah readied herself to say goodbye to Tyler, 25, a general contractor from Jupiter, Florida.
Once ‘a really dependent girl’ who was ‘sad on the inside’ because she ‘needed validation,’ Hannah said she had learned to be herself and ask for what she deserved.

‘I have a whole different mindset of who I am and what I need in life,’ she reflected, explaining that she just wanted someone to join her on her life’s journey, not eclipse it.
As the two remaining suitors picked out engagement rings with Lane, Hannah, en route to their proposal place, worried she might make a bad decision.
‘I was hopeful that I would have clarity but today, I don’t know,’ she opined, asking her driver to stop the car.
No clarity: Hannah was still seeking clarity right before the rose ceremony
She got out in her white dress, and walked onto a sloping street in her high heels, onto which she soon tumbled.
‘Are you okay?’ a producer asked, rushing to her side.
‘No,’ she whimpered, showing him a scraped elbow. ‘I really can’t do this.’

Slowly, she got herself together, all too aware that Tyler was going to feel blindsided by her decision.
She was right.
‘I want her more than anything I’ve ever wanted in my life,’ Tyler said as he walked up to her on a hilltop, calling her ‘the woman of my dreams.’
Feeling confident: Tyler was confident going into the rose ceremony that he was going to marry Hannah
‘Hannah Brown,’ he said, taking her hands in his, ‘from the moment I met you, you’ve captivated my soul.
‘I have grown so much emotionally, spiritually, and so madly in love,’ he continued, as Hannah looked bereft.
‘I started falling in love with you the first moment I got to hold you, dance with you, and have you in my arms on our first date.’

‘Tyler—’ she said, stopping him.
‘This isn’t it,’ he said.
Hannah told him that she had been so lucky to have his love and support.
‘I love someone else. I’m so sorry,’ she said.
Not it: Tyler realized that Hannah was not going to offer him her final rose
Tyler took it in stride, albeit with a clenched jaw.
‘I wish you and Jed nothing but success,’ he said, calling himself her ‘biggest fan.’ ‘I really mean that.’
‘Best of luck, Hannah,’ her suitor added at the car, as they thanked each other, sounding oddly formal. ‘I’ll see you.’
Tough moment: Hannah hugged a clearly crushed Tyler
It wasn’t until Tyler drove away that his face reddened with emotion, and he dropped his guard.
‘Feels like a million uppercuts to the gut right now,’ the young man confessed.
In the next moments of the show, Hannah turned her attention to Jed, greeting him with a huge smile as he strode up to meet her outdoors, carrying his guitar.
Million uppercuts: Tyler likened the feeling to a ‘million uppercuts to the gut’
‘I’ve been waiting my whole life to have my happy ending,’ an excited Hannah explained as he approached.
‘I’m about to ask Hannah to marry me,’ Jed realized. ‘It’s just all kind of hit me, how amazing this could be.’
He began by reminding her of their first encounter.
Guitar guy: Nashville singer-songwriter Jed brought his guitar to the rose ceremony
‘When I met you, I wanted to see a light inside you, and I wanted to know the deepest part of you,’ Jed said.
‘The way that you’ve made me feel and the light inside of you is even brighter than I could have imagined.’
Saying that it was easier for him to sing than talk, he strapped on his guitar and played Hannah a song about their journey, crooning: ‘We always knew it’s me and you.’
Sweet song: Jed played Hannah a song about their journey
‘Baby time stands still for us,’ he added, as a single tear rolled down Hannah’s face.
‘I really liked that,’ she giggled, applauding him.
She told Jed that, as a girl, she had often wondered who she might one day marry, and what his interests would be.
‘I sometimes questioned why God has allowed things to happen in my life the way they did,’ she noted, citing the ‘heartbreaks’ she had been through, and the ‘struggle.’
‘There were so many times in my life where I thought that it would be it, and it wasn’t, and I didn’t understand why,’ Hannah continued. ‘But it’s led me to this moment. It’s led me to you.’
‘I am in complete love with you,’ she finally revealed. ‘I love you, Jed Wyatt.’
Jed got down on one knee.
One knee: Jed dropped to a knee and proposed to Hannah
‘I have lived 25 years of my life without you,’ he said. ‘And I don’t want to go another day of my life without you being all mine.’
‘Hannah? Will you marry me?’
‘Yes,’ she said nodding, as they embraced.
Affirmative answer: Hannah said ‘yes’ when Jed asked her to marry him
‘Oh my gosh,’ she said.
‘Oh my god,’ he rejoined.
‘We did it,’ she marveled.
‘It’s us,’ he said.
Then she gave him her final rose.
‘We’re engaged!’ they screamed to the hills.
‘Woah,’ Hannah said.
In the days that followed, the couple spent time together dancing, making videos, playing games and singing songs.
Good times: Hannah was happy playing games with her new fiance Jedd
Hannah seemed ecstatic, but privately, she confessed that Jed was not as ‘sweet and sincere and honest’ as she had hoped.
After they’d gotten engaged, Jed told her he had broken things off with a girl back home just weeks before he started filming the show.
Hannah then read a magazine article that suggested the relationship had continued until the moment he left.

In his last letter to ex Haley Stevens, written the night before the show, Jed had said: ‘Someday we will be thankful for all of this. You know where my heart will be.’
The full story, which Hannah discovered long after the proposal, had ‘muddied the waters’ for her, she said.
‘I love the person I got engaged to,’ Hannah explained. ‘I don’t know how I feel about this person.’
The girlfriend: Hannah learned from a People magazine article that Jed had a girlfriend at home when he left to tape the show
Jed tried to defend his actions, saying that he and Haley weren’t exclusive, and had hung out just a few times.
When Hannah probed further, he admitted that they had gone on a road trip together, that she had met his parents, and that he had even drunkenly said he loved her.
Hannah slapped her head in amazement.
Too much: Jed told Hannah all about his ex Haley Stevens who met his parents and went on a trip with him
‘You told me to tell the truth,’ Jed said.
‘I want you to tell the truth, but I’m also going to react to the truth and be like, ”What the freak?”,’ she said, astounded. ‘And you’re not ”dating”?’
Haley threw him a birthday party, he continued, and her parents gifted him with a Bahamas vacation. Three days before, he was asked if he would want to do the show.
Surprise party: The singer also told how Haley threw him a surprise birthday party
He told Haley it was for his career, saying that he ‘highly, highly doubted’ it could end up with him in a relationship.
‘It’s so selfish to everyone,’ Hannah moaned. ‘It’s selfish to her, it’s selfish to me….ughhhh.’
In the airport, he considered that his departure meant things were over with Haley, though he sent messages.
So selfish: Hannah told Jed that he was selfish
‘To me, I ended it in my heart, and not verbally,’ Jed said.
‘How? You said you loved her in a phone call and a text, the day of,’ an exasperated Hannah cried, pointing out that he’d had sex with Haley the night before he left.
It had all turned bad.
Hannah’s family members were getting messages about Jed’s past, and she herself had received texts from women who’d recently been at his home.
‘I’m ill,’ Hannah said, heading outside.
Jed said he’d never thought of Haley as a girlfriend, but had been scared to tell Hannah once he started falling for her.
‘It turns [out] me pulling it back has now put me in this position,’ he acknowledged.
‘Put us. Us,’ Hannah emphasized. ‘It’s not just you.’
Tough spot: Hannah told Jed that his actions put them both in a tough position
Jed had also told his friends that he ‘won’ the show, she pointed out, which didn’t make her feel so good.
She now understood why his family had been ‘skeptical’ of their relationship on the hometown visit episode.
‘I just never met someone who made me feel like I wanted to be a better person,’ Jed volunteered.
Better person: Jed said that Hannah made him feel like becoming a better person
‘Well the first way to be a better person is to be honest about your past,’ Hannah declared.
Her happy experience had been stolen from her, she said.
‘I’m sorry. You don’t deserve this,’ Jed begged. ‘I want to be someone that you’re proud of, Hannah.’
‘I need some grace and patience, ’cause I am not perfect.’
‘I have grace for you,’ Hannah vowed. ‘But also, this doesn’t mean the same thing.’
She pointed to her ring, then took it off.
‘That’s not what I said yes to.’
On the live show, Hannah and Jed came face-to-face for the first time since she had broken things off by phone.
‘I am responsible for this,’ he said, testifying that he had never thought he would find love on the show. ‘I’m sorry.’
Saying sorry: Jed during the live show was reunited with Hannah and apologized again
‘What you did was not right and not good, but I did fall in love with you, and I know that that person’s in there,’ a tearful Hannah admitted.
Once the trust was gone, it was over for her, she noted.
‘I don’t love you like that anymore,’ she affirmed.
‘So this is over,’ Chris asked.
‘Yes,’ Hannah said.
She had, however, been ‘grieving’ her relationship with Tyler, she confessed.
‘Those feelings just didn’t go away,’ she said, giddily, as he came out to sit with her.
Tyler said he threw up from nerves the day he proposed to Hannah, and was like ‘a happy little kid’ approaching her.
Big hug: Second-place finisher Tyler also was reunited with Hannah and gave her a big hug
Strong chemistry: Hannah and Tyler showed their strong chemistry remained during the live show
‘Everything I said I meant and felt,’ she reiterated. ‘It didn’t just go away, and I still have feelings.’
‘I want somebody to be bold,’ she teased him, grinning. ‘You are an incredible guy… and I’m a single girl.’
‘I thought maybe we could go for a drink and just hang out.’
‘I would love to,’ Tyler rejoined. ‘Just tell me when, I’m there.’
