EXCLUSIVE PHOTOS: See Jade Roper and Tanner Tolbert's Platinum Wedding Bands - and Her $250,000 Bridal Jewelry!

Updated

When Jade Roper was looking for a wedding band to complement her unusual and elegant 2-carat engagement ring, with its emerald-cut diamond set on its side, she wanted “classical, very classical, and very, very feminine,” says jeweler Neil Lane.

With input from Roper, who fell in love with Bachelorette alum Tanner Tolbert on Bachelor in Paradise and got engaged on the show’s September 7, 2015, finale, Lane designed a platinum and diamond eternity band set with over 150 small diamonds.

“There are diamonds on all sides,” Roper tells PEOPLE of her band, “and it complements my ring in a contrasting way. My engagement ring is very elegant and a simple clean design and this (band) has a lot of sparkle, so I kind of got the best of both worlds!”

Calling the smitten reality duo “so gracious, sweet and just really genuine and happy,” Lane also designed Tolbert’s “bold” brushed platinum band (“The first few days Jade wanted to kill me because I kept fiddling with it!” Tolbert says).

“Tanner said he wanted something strong and masculine, and his band works perfectly with hers,” Lane says. “His has real heft and Jade’s is feminine and sparkly. A perfect match.”

Same could be said of the newlyweds, who were married on Jan. 24, in a “gorgeous wedding,” says Lane, who attended the nuptials.

“Jade looked so beautiful!” How could she not? Rounding out her wedding look were $250,000 worth of diamonds from the jeweler, including handmade earrings with over 20 carats of cascading diamonds finished with six briolette-cut hanging stones and bracelets with over 35 carats of diamonds. Says Lane, “On the dance floor, Jade was sparkling!”
