According to jeweler Loree Rodkin, the proposal was a surprise.
“He was working, so I picked stones, built settings, showed him choices and sent him pictures on his phone,” she tells People. “He asked for guidance but the choice was his. Having made jewelry for both Erin and Steven made it an effortless process, as I know their taste.”
Word spread when the couple were photographed in Maui on Christmas Day, with Erin sporting a new diamond ring on her finger.
Brady’s ring is a 5-carat, brilliant-cut diamond, which sits on a micro pave diamond-and-platinum band.
A spokesperson for Rodkin tells People the ring is totally unique. “It’s one of a kind, like all of her pieces. Steven has been a client of Loree’s for many years, and often wears rings by her, as well as other jewelry.”
The two have been dating since 2006. It will be Tyler’s third time down the aisle: he was married twice before, to Cyrinda Foxe in 1978, and clothing designer Teresa Barrick in 1988.
