Before proposing to Hailey Baldwin, Justin Bieber set about trying to find the perfect ring, and his manager Scooter Braun put him in touch with Jack Solow. Speaking to E!, Solow said, “I was very genuinely excited for him and I had heard that he was with somebody very, very special and that they had bonded over personal things and I was just very, very happy like I would be for any young man who’s on that next stop of his life, but for Justin, of course, it’s that much more special and that much more visible for everybody.”
According to Solow, Bieber knew what he wanted when he ordered the ring. He explained, “Justin had a big hand in it. He had certain design elements that he wanted and he had certain expectations and I think we delivered.”
Bieber had some help from Baldwin’s own older tweets, given that the model tweeted out in 2012, “If my ring is not as big as Blake Lively’s, I don’t want to get married.”

Solow also explained what the focus of the ring was, “It was about the diamond. I think he knew very well what Hailey wanted in a ring, but he wanted it very much to be about a very special diamond. He left it in my hands to try and select the most beautiful diamond for someone like Hailey.”
Bieber was also vocal about matching the cushion cut oval ring with yellow gold, and Solow guessed that the choice of metal was important in some way to Baldwin.
Bieber met with Solow on the Friday before he left for Baker’s Bay with Baldwin, where he proposed to her. Solow recalled of his meeting with Bieber, “There was one moment when he looked into the diamond and I said, ‘What do you see inside that diamond?’ He goes, ‘I think I see Hailey’s face,’ so that was kind of cute.”
The jeweler made a $5000 donation to the charity of Baldwin’s choice, Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Fund.
