A romantic vacation in Italy’s Amalfi Coast came with a dazzling surprise for “The Bold & The Beautiful” actress Katrina Bowden – a proposal! This sweet couple has been dating for a few years and went public with their relationship in October 2021, with Adam Taylor sharing a photo of them on his Instagram account. The following month, Katrina shared a pic of Adam on her page.
Katrina and Adam celebrated her birthday on September 19 by exploring Rome, then headed to the stunning village on Italy’s mesmerizing Amalfi Coast, Portofino. Adam hired a boat for the day, and they came across a small, empty beach where they decided to hang out for a while. Adam cleverly set up a tripod to take photos of them, as their only photos were selfies. Then, when he returned to his unsuspecting girlfriend, he surprised her by dropping to one knee and proposing. Katrina was overwhelmed by the special moment, which brought her to tears. She joked about the ring, saying, “Also, the ring blinded me, so my eyes were in pain.” Katrina felt it was the “happiest, most perfect day of my life.”
On the 24th of September, the couple shared their engagement on their Instagram accounts with photos of Adam on his knee with Katrina tearing up and a close-up hand shot of her engagement ring, which we’ll gush about further on. They captioned the post, “Happy to announce…we are no longer dating,” with a yellow heart.

Let’s Dish About Her Ring!
Adam proposed to Katrina with a dazzling round-cut engagement ring set on a plain gold band. Our expert, Benjamin Khordipour, suspects the diamond to be 3 or 4 carats and may have cost around $100,000. Most circular-cut diamonds are pricier than the oval or princess cut. Katrina’s engagement ring is classic with a subtle vintage feel that makes it personalized and original but not overpowering or flashy. The ring bears spectacular craftsmanship and is uniquely beautiful. It has a cathedral setting and intricate milgrain detailing. This type of setting heightens the ring and adds character to the diamond. The milgrain detailing along the border gives the ring a vintage feel. Milgrain was a popular feature on rings from the Art Deco era.
