Model Jasmine Tookes engagement ring

SNAPCHAT EXECUTIVE JUAN David Borrero pulled out all the stops for his marriage proposal to Victoria’s Secret Angel Jasmine Tookes on September 21. The Ecuador-born Borrero’s romantic adventure covered three states and culminated with a drone-delivered 7-carat oval-shaped diamond engagement ring.

This past Thursday, the supermodel’s 4.1 million Instagram followers got to see intimate shots of her special day, along with a close-up look at her new ring. The 18-karat yellow gold ring features a hidden halo, diamond-embellished prongs and is estimated to be worth more than $250,000. Borrero reportedly spent eight months designing the custom ring with specialists at Ritani.

Tookes captioned the photo, “Si, mi amor! We’re engaged!!!” and punctuated the post with heart, love and crying emojis.

In an interview with Vogue.com, the 29-year-old Tookes dished all the details of her memorable day.

Early on Monday, September 21, Borrero, the 30-year-old director of international markets at Snapchat, interrupted Tookes’ workday to tell her to pack her bags. They were going on a surprise trip and they were leaving in two hours.

Tookes was blindfolded on the way to their first stop, The Rose in Venice, CA. It was the restaurant where they first met four years ago.

Then they drove off to the airport, where they boarded a plane to Page, AZ. Along the way, the model munched Popeyes chicken tenders and drank Champagne.

“I was in heaven,” she wrote, but things were about to get even more exciting.

After touching down in Arizona, they boarded a helicopter.
