Scheana Shay is engaged to her boyfriend of two years, Brock Honey Davies, but some fans had a lot to say about her engagement ring.
In an interview with People, the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star said she already had a feeling Davies would pop the question but never predicted how it would happen. “I knew it was coming soon, but I didn’t know how or when. I was so surprised!” Shay shared. “Brock knows me so well and knew exactly what I was going to do. There is no date but our dream would be to get married in Bali.” She also shared the importance of Bali as it is the place where they first declared their love. “That’s where we first said ‘I love you,'” she added. “It’s a special place for both of us!”
Dropping to one knee, Davies presented Shay with a 12.74 carat rectangular cushion-cut pink morganite ring designed by Kyle Chan. And when fans finally got a glimpse of the ring, the reality star faced unfair criticism.
Scheana Shay said she never wanted a diamond ring
Fans were quick to slam Scheana Shay’s engagement ring when they found out how much it cost Brock Honey Davies. In an episode of “Vanderpump Rules,” the athlete was shown using three credit cards to pay for the $25,000 morganite ring he was going to give his future fiancee.
When a fan pointed out on Twitter that it wasn’t a diamond, Shay replied, “It’s still 12.74 carats. Why does it matter which stone?” In a separate tweet, she continued to defend her fiancé’s choice of rock after fans claimed Davies probably overpaid for the ring. “It doesn’t look like mine. Mine is a rare light pink stone. Also, he didn’t actually PAY $25,000,” she wrote. “He got a very good deal. What the ring is worth and what he paid for varies widely and I have the papers to prove it.” A fan also asked why Davies paid $25,000, to which Shay reiterated that he actually got a good deal in the ring. “Kyle wasn’t lying. The ring is actually worth more than we found out. They like to hear how much things cost on the show. Whether we pay for that or not is another story.”
Ultimately, Shay doesn’t care about the type of stone. She told fans she didn’t want a diamond anyway. “I didn’t want a diamond. Morganites are beautiful and hold so much meaning,” she tweeted.
Scheana Shay and Brock Honey Davies changed their wedding plans
It’s been months since Scheana Shay and Brock Honey Davies got engaged and now they’re busy preparing for the wedding. But contrary to what Shay said after saying “yes,” the two appear to plan on hitchhiking in Mexico instead of Bali.
“We’re going to Mexico in a couple of weeks to check out some venues there. We wanted to do Bali, but their quarantine laws are getting longer and it just won’t work, so we’re going to go look Mexico,” she said on the Scheananigans with Scheana Shay podcast. “We have four venues that we are looking at. We’ll see if one of them is correct. And hopefully [the wedding will be at the] End of August. That is the plan.”
And just as her marriage to Mike Shay was documented on the show, the star is also hoping her marriage to Davies will be included on the show. “We don’t know anything about the next season yet, but if that happens to fall within the filming schedule, then absolutely. We would appreciate it [it]’ said Us Weekly.
