The ring (courtesy go-to Bachelor jeweler Neil Lane, of course) is a princess-cut diamond set in a diamond-encrusted platinum band featuring 161 small round brilliant-cut stones, totaling 3.68 carats of sparkle.
“He did really good,” Faddoul, 26, told PEOPLE of her new bling. “It’s so exciting. The ring is absolutely beautiful. It’s gorgeous. I definitely wasn’t expecting that.”
As for a wedding date, Grodd and Faddoul are just enjoying their engagement for now. “We definitely want to wait a year to get married, at least,” Grodd shared. “We want to do it right. We get one shot at this.”
Adds Faddoul, “We’ve talked about it and I’ve been on Pinterest a lot. He sends me bridal magazines, so he wants it to be on my mind. He’s coming to see my home, and I’m going to see his home, so we’re going to decide after that where we’re going to live together.”
