This one is so much more meaningful! Rachel and Jon Walters‘ shared all of the important parts of their love story with fans on Season 2 of TLC’s hit reality TV series 90 Day Fiancé: Before The 90 Days — from their first-ever IRL meeting to their first kiss, their emotional AF proposal, to their romantic elopement ceremony. So it is just natural that they are continuing to share their journey as newlyweds with fans well after the tell-all via social media. On Sunday, Dec. 9, Rachel took to Instagram to flaunt her third engagement ring from Jon, and she shared a message with fans explaining why ring No. 3 is the one that means the most to her.

“As most of you know, the ring Jon proposed with, went down a running garbage disposal and it did not survive. He sent a replacement ring shortly after. Not too long after that, Jon said how he felt like he had nothing to do with my replacement ring and how he had no emotion towards it,” the 33-year-old wrote in her caption on Instagram. “I soon started feeling the same way, because, quite frankly, he was right. I found myself leaving the house without the replacement ring and only wearing my wedding ring, which he made (and I made his)… which meant a lot to me.”
Fans watched as Rachel and Jon went to a small local jewelry shop near Jon’s hometown of Weston-super-Mare, where they made wedding bands for each other before their wedding day. Since Rachel’s replacement ring wasn’t the ring that Jon presented to her as he got down on one knee at King Arthur’s Tintagel Castle, she and Jon felt that her replacement ring was not as special as the wedding band that wedding band that Jon made for her. That’s when she decided that it would be best to go with a family heirloom ring instead.
“Then I remembered I had my great-grandmother’s ring and knew it would be the sentimental value that my finger needed,” Rachel continued. So this is my new pair of jewelry. A diamond ring that once belonged to my sweet great-grandmother, who died at the age of 98, and the one-of-a-kind wedding band, that my husband made me. It’s a perfect combination.”
