Michelle Young is officially a bride-to-be—and she has the bling to prove it!
During the romantic proposal, Nayte told Michelle, "The very first night I met you, I knew right then and there that we had a connection that I wanted to hold onto. The second night that we were together, we talked about running away together. And I'm standing in front of you right now, and the feelings are the same. I want to run away with you. I want to run away to forever with the woman that I've come to love."
While the magical moment was undoubtedly the stuff fairy tales are made of, all eyes were also on the stunning ring that Nayte presented Michelle. The diamond and platinum ring centering a pear-shaped diamond is set with two tapered baguette diamonds and further set with 46 round brilliants cut diamonds for a total weight of over 3.00 carats.
The ring, designed and signed by Neil Lane, was hand made in platinum.
During this week's finale, she made the "hardest" decision of her life. Her choice was down to Nayte and Brandon Jones, who said in a teaser, "There's nobody else in this world that I'd rather give my heart to."
On the other hand, Nayte told Michelle he was "madly in love" with her, saying, "and it is terrifying."
"I can see lies coming from across the classroom," Michelle joked. "It helped me out a little bit."
She added, "I am very happy just how this entire experience went. I have learned so much about myself, about what I'm looking for."
And the premiere of The Bachelor is just around the corner, with Clayton Echard's season slated to premiere on Monday, Jan. 3 on ABC.
