Stephenie Meyer actually designed Bella's engagement ring!

The engagement ring given to Bella by Edward in The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, was a true labor of love, reports, requiring a prop master, five different jewelers, several samples and a multitude of research to finally get the glittering piece to perfection–and up to author Stephenie Meyer’s liking. The task of designing the antique engagement ring–described by Meyer in her Eclipse novel as a delicate piece “set with slanting rows of glittering round stones”–fell on prop master Grant Swain, who tirelessly researched Victorian-era jewelry before calling in samples and hiring four different designers to create various prototypes of the ring. But to no avail: Meyer, unimpressed with the model baubles, took it upon herself to draw up a rough sketch of the ring as she had envisioned it. The illustration was sent to Portland-based jeweler Rick Thurber, who used a computerized image of the drawing to create the end result — a stunning pave-diamond ring that was rushed to the set just hours before filming of the pivotal scene began!

Lets be completely honest here. How many of you guys actually like the ring? I've heard that it doesn't look very delicate or feminine and I've heard it's too big, but I do actually like the ring. What are your own personal thoughts on the ring?

I don't really like it. Well, it's pretty, but not something i would want to wear every day.

this is a pretty ring sure, but it just doesn't say engagement to me - or victorian era for that matter. It is too big and looks like a ring you would buy to accessorise an outfit, I wouldn't be able to wear it every day though!
It says more - $15 from diva or accessory shop to me than edwards mum's antique engagement ring

it is old fashioned but I'm sorry to say it is something I would have never had picked was Meyes vision so it is what it is ..

I don't see it as an engagement ring, but I do like it, in my opinion is Bella's kind of style, she wasn't going to have an ordinary engagement ring, because she simply didn't like that girly stuff, so I liked it for Bella, and the ring itself it's pretty, in my opinion.

in breaking dawn bella mentions it being so big and everyone looking at the big thing on her finger, i didn't take this literally, i took it as stephanie showing how self conscious bella was about the fact that she was getting married

I think it pretty good. So let's just remember though, if Stephenie Meyer designed it, then it was the way she pictured it in her head. That's all that really matters because these are her books being adapted to films.
