What Happens to the Unused Engagement Rings on The Bachelor?

There's a Bachelor "Ring Graveyard" Full of Scorned Rings, and It's Probably Haunted AF

Every member of Bachelor Nation worth their salt knows Neil Lane has provided dozens of engagement rings for the show — but what happens when the relationship doesn't work out? Former Bachelorette star Becca Kufrin went on The Ringer's Bachelor Party podcast this week and revealed that there's actually a place where production hides the "scorned rings." Speaking to host Juliet Litman, Kufrin mentioned a "ring graveyard."

Kufrin famously returned her engagement ring to Arie Luyendyk Jr. when he broke up with her after his proposal on The Bachelor, but there are unused rings on almost every season of The Bachelorette. After all, the star usually gets two proposals at the end of the show. (Because The Bachelor still subscribes to typical gender roles and has the male lead propose, there's only one ring.) Of the proposals that are accepted, not all work out. In fact, Bachelor couples staying together for the long haul is pretty rare, meaning there are a lot of unused rings out there.

It's not new information that the rings go back to production, of course. Other former contestants have spoken about The Bachelor's contract before, citing that they need to stay together for at least two years after the final episode of their season airs to be able to keep it. But now that we know they're all kept together in a special cursed area, we're dying to see it.
