Ben Bekdas designed Polizzi's 5-carat engagement ring with her fiancé, Jionni LaValle. Polizzi confirmed this week that she is pregnant and engaged to LaValle, who grew up in East Hanover and runs his own ATM business.
Diamonds pinned between two bands run the circumference of the ring, and a princess cut diamond of about 3-carats sits atop the bands.
“She wanted something timeless,” Bekdas, of B&B Jewelry, said Thursday in his display area at the Jewelry Exchange.
Bekdas said he has designed jewelry for Teresa Guidice of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” talk-show host Wendy Williams, and several professional football and basketball players. The business has been at The Jewelry Exchange for 24 years.
Bekdas described both Polizzi and LaValle as “very classy, well-spoken people.”
