The ring from designer Neil Lane's archival collection features a round diamond secured by its original four-prong Edwardian setting — a piece that dates back to the early 20th century, according to People StyleWatch. The platinum band is adorned with pavé diamonds on each side, and has a delicate diamond gallery that encircles the center stone. People reported that the ring's value is $350,000.

The 48-year-old Statham, a Brit who is famous for his tough-guy roles in films, such as The Transporter trilogy and The Fast and the Furious franchise, was truly excited when he found the right ring, according to Lane.

“It’s classic and elegant and the stone is perfection,” Lane told People. “Jason wanted something perfect and flawless and he kept coming back to this one. He knew it was right.”

Brides.com called Statham a sweet and bona-fide genius at picking out jewelry and praised the vintage ring for its timeless, tasteful style — a flawless fit for a classic Brit beauty.

Huntington-Whiteley, 28, is a top-earning fashion model and covergirl who is best known for her work as a Victoria's Secret "Angel." She is also dabbling in her future husband's profession, with a few movie roles already under her belt.

The couple met on the set of Transformers in 2010 and had been dating ever since. During an April 2014 interview with Self magazine, the stunning model opened up about the love of her life.

“We’re best mates,” she said. “He makes me laugh every day.”
