Model Devon Windsor and fiancé Johnny Dex didn’t browse the diamond district in search of the perfect engagement ring. Instead, the Victoria’s Secret stunner turned to social media.
“Devon and I follow each other on Instagram, so she and I were DM-ing a little about rings, but really he [Johnny] took over the entire process,” Ring Concierge founder Nicole Wegman told Page Six on Tuesday. “The ring was a surprise for her. He designed it, he picked out the diamond, so he gets all the credit for the ring being beautiful.”
Windsor, 24, announced Sunday she and fellow model Dex had gotten engaged, sharing snaps of the dazzling, oval-shaped diamond ring with her 1.2 million followers.
“Diamonds are rare, but large diamonds are exceptionally rare, so we spent a long time finding the right oval that stood out,” Wegman explained. “I was looking for a few months to find the right diamond and then, when we found it, the setting, design, was his concept. He wanted this open, floating design, and we came up with what you see now. It took a month to make.”
With a price tag north of Ring Concierge’s starting rate, which is between $10,000 to $12,000, the final product even took Wegman’s breath away.
“It was handmade by my master jeweler here in New York City, and they hand-set 171 round diamonds, so there’s no piece of the ring where you can really see the platinum. It just looks like diamonds everywhere,” she said. “From every angle it’s breathtaking.”
