To us, Britney is a worldwide superstar, but to fiance Jason Trawick, “she’s his everyday princess,” says celebrity jeweler Neil Lane, who designed Britney’s engagement ring.
“Jason is a romantic and when I asked him to tell me about Britney and what the ring would represent to them so I could find inspiration, his response was always the same – she is his princess!”
“With that theme in mind, Lane tells People he designed from scratch a tiara-motif sparkler with a round, perfect white diamond in a handmade platinum setting that ‘looks like a mini crown,’ the celebrated jeweler says. He also added 90 small round diamonds around the eternity band. ‘Jason didn’t want an over-the-top ring with a giant stone,’ he adds”.
During the last month, Lane and Jason texted and emailed back and forth about the ring; Lane never knew where Jason was! “Texts came from all over the world, from Abu Dhabi, Mexico and I don’t know where else!” says Lane.
When Jason picked up the ring in L.A. after getting home from the tour, Lane says he could tell Jason had the pre-proposal jitters. “Oh my god, he loved it,” Lane said. “The guy was so excited and nervous. At the end of the day, even with all the fame, he’s still a normal guy who was about to propose to the woman he loves.”
Lane thinks Jason and Britney are in it to win it. “He’s deeply in love with her. Britney is his princess and he is her knight in shining armor,” he says. “Jason’s protective of her. He adores her. Every good fairytale needs a princess, and now Britney has a ring fit for a princess!”
