The website also analyses the ring's gorgeous design: "The setting is very reminiscent of the 1920’s and has round brilliant cut diamonds pave set on the shank."

The proposal location was just as spectacular as the ring itself, as Henry asked for Jenna's hand in marriage during a hike on Cadillac Mountain in Maine’s Acadia National Park.

Henry popped the question in 2007, but it came to light in a Today show episode, that Jenna had in fact asked the question first, a few years prior. At the time Henry said it was too soon and turned down her proposal, but of course, the rest is history as the pair went on to marry.

Jenna and Henry had outdoor vows

Jenna Bush is the daughter of the former president, George W. Bush, and the couple exchanged vows on her father's ranch in Texas. The Prairie Chapel Ranch grounds provided the perfect backdrop for their breathtaking ceremony.

Speaking to Vogue, Jenna explained the decision behind her al fresco nuptials. "It means a lot to Henry and me to be outdoors. We wanted something organic and low key," she revealed.

Jenna didn't let the laid-back location stop her from going glam with her bridal look as she chose a show-stopping lace gown. The sleeveless design featured a V-neck and a figure-hugging skirt, and the bride kept her hair simple with a half-up half-down style finished with flowers.
