On Sunday night’s The Bachelorette finale, the 26-year-old star got engaged to Jef Holm after he popped the question with a stunning Neil Lane engagement ring.
Holm, a 27-year-old entrepreneur from Utah, got down on one knee and presented her with the 3.5-carat stunner.
Although Maynard paused slightly before accepting the proposal, she is now proudly wearing the engagement ring, which includes a 2.5-carat emerald stone surrounded by 87 smaller diamonds. According to InStyle, the ring is estimated to cost $150,000.

Even though Maynard’s feelings for Holm were solidified in the finale, she admitted during multiple interview segments that she wasn’t sure if she was ready to commit to a proposal. Much was weighing on her decision, including the feelings she felt when she broke up with Bachelor star Brad Womack — and how her seven-year-old daughter Ricki might feel if she were to say yes.
However, all doubts were washed away when Holm showed up with a ring in his pocket.
“It’s been a long road,” Maynard said to the 27-year-old entrepreneur from St. George, UT. “But one that I can look back on every single moment, even the lowest, and know that it was all worth it, because I can stand here and tell you, you really are everything that I’ve looked for for so long. I really feel like you’re my soul mate … I love you so, so much.”
“I found my everything, and I’m so in love with you,” Holm said. “And I promise you that if you let me into your life and Ricki’s life, you will never feel lonely again. I love you so much.”
