Ariana Grande is engaged to Los-Angeles real estate agent Dalton Gomez, her boyfriend of nearly a year!
Looks like Ariana Grande is Stuck With (U) Dalton Gomez. On Dec. 20., the pop-star posted a series of photos to Instagram captioned, “forever n then some.”
The first photo shows The Positions singer and her new fiancé cuddling. But it took us a minute of scrolling to see the beautiful—and unique—ring in the second and fourth slide.
The ring is an oval-shaped diamond accompanied by a single pearl set on a thin, white gold band. (Another currently engaged celeb, Emma Stone, is also sporting a pearl engagement ring.) The singer posted a close-up image of the ring on her tattooed hand with perfectly manicured nails.
Brilliant Earth’s SVP of Merchandising & Retail Expansion Kathryn Money weighed on the specifics of the beautiful ring.
"Ariana’s two stone ring appears to feature a 5-7 carat oval diamond offset next to 5-6mm pearl set on a simple white gold or platinum band," Money tells Brides. "This reflects two rising celeb engagement ring trends—elongated fancy shapes and unique gemstones. Ariana’s style is extra unique given the asymmetrical diamond and pearl pairing!" She estimates the cost of the ring to be about $300,000-$350,000, depending on the specific characteristics of the center stone.
Some fans also have a sweet theory about the meaning behind the pearl: that it came from her late grandfather's tie-pin and was re-purposed once again after her grandmother previously gifted it to her in ring form. While Grande hasn't confirmed this, the pearl could at the very least be a nod to her grandfather who she was extremely close to.
The singer has been linked to the Aaron Kirkman Group realtor since February 2020, when the two were spotted kissing. They even allegedly spent quarantine together and confirmed their relationship in the “Stuck With U” music video, which also featured couples like Hailey and Justin Bieber and since-separated Demi Lovato and Max Ehrich.
Grande has been engaged once before to comedian and SNL cast member Pete Davidson. The two had quite a famous and brief engagement back in 2018 before calling off the engagement after Grande’s ex-boyfriend Mac Miller passed away of an alleged overdose.
Congratulations to the happy couple! We hope this makes their holiday season that much more "Sweetener!"
