I told him a few details but I trusted him and as you can see he came through above and beyond. When I decided to do this he was the only one I wanted to design Brittany's ring and this is why.. flawless Kyle absolutely flawless. Also thank you Margaret owner of @Neptunesnet for allowing me to make this special day possible at one of our favorite spots to eat in Malibu."

Shortly after the news was posted on Instagram, several Bravo friends couldn't help but express their excitement at the news.

"Ring's badass. Beautiful stuff. Good job @MrJaxTaylor Congrats you two," Southern Charm's Craig Conover wrote in the comments section. Shep Rose added, "Damn! Haha. Congrats you 2! Can't wait to celebrate in person." 

Viewers of Bravo's addictive reality show have followed Jax and Brittany's love story that has been a bit of a roller coaster. In fact, last season documented the couple's struggle to overcome Jax's cheating scandal. Ultimately, it became clear that the love between the pair never went away.

"He just wasn't going to give up on me," Brittany revealed to Morgan Stewart and Carissa Culiner on E!'s Daily Pop when reliving their breakup. "I knew that I loved him still. I was trying to act like I didn't. In the end, I'm just so glad where we are right now because we are so much better than we ever have been."

Jax would later tweet, "I am not perfect and I will never be but I am working very hard on myself. I realized later that @BNCartwright is my angel and she makes me want to be a better man."

Congratulations to the couple on their big news! Now, it's time to plan a wedding!
