AFTER failing to pick a partner on The Bachelor finale, the stunning ring Nick Cummins was seen holding in previews has had to find a new home.

The Larsen Jewellery ring has been gifted straight back to the jeweller, after it was provided to Channel 10 for the winning lady.

The Malaya ring is a breathtaking cushion cut sparkler featuring a 6.75ct diamond and two Trilliant cut diamonds totalling 0.22ct.

It is understood to be worth between $20,000 and $30,000 and comes in white, yellow or rose gold.

Larsen Jewellery, which has stores in Sydney and Melbourne, has announced on Instagram the ring has been returned and they will be donating it to a charity.

The jeweller is yet to choose which organisation but said an announcement was imminent.

In the promo clip for the finale Nick opened up a box and admired the giant rock.

A jeweller donates a ring every season for the bachelor to offer to their chosen winner, whether it’s an engagement ring or a promise ring, and it is prearranged before shooting begins.

Sam Wood’s ring he gave to winner Snezana Markoski in 2016 was a symbol of commitment, as was Matty J’s to Laura Byrne last year.

Blake Garvey used his ring in season two to propose to Sam Frost, before dumping her weeks later.

Brittany Hockley was a favourite to take out the competition but was shockingly dumped along with Sophie Tieman during the finale in New Caledonia.

Cummins, who remains overseas doing a charity walk of the Kokoda Trail, said he was ready to 100 per cent commit to either woman.

It was a local first for the franchise and led Ten to a rare ratings night win (pulling a national audience average of 1.68 million viewers).

The backlash over the Badger’s decision also fired up fans on Twitter, with the show’s hashtag trending at number one in Australia after the broadcast, and number three worldwide.
