Eclipse engagement ring plot was a big deal for the movie. Picking out the ring for the engagement between Edward and Bella in the Twilight Eclipse film wasn’t easy. The third Twilight film, Eclipse, is essentially centered on the love triangle of Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson’s characters, in which an engagement ring is revealed.
“I’ve never been in a love triangle,” Lautner said in a statement. “I would not want to be in that situation. I wouldn’t want to be in Bella’s situation for sure. Or Jacobs. Or Edwards!” While it makes for good entertainment on the big screen, the stars of the film say they could do without the drama.
Twilight author Stephanie Meyer was very adamant about getting the ring just right. The film’s prop master, Grant Swain, reportedly spent a huge amount of time researching the ring and commissioning samples from various designers. Unfortunately, none of these rings were acceptable.
Meyer eventually had to design the ring herself with the aid of Portland-based jeweler Rick Thurber. In Eclipse, Stephanie describes the ring as “set with slanting rows of glittering round stones.” It’s a beautiful pave-diamond ring that wasn’t even finished until a few hours before the filming the scene.
