When Ariana’s now-husband Dalton Gomez, 25, popped the question, he did so with a very unique, sentimental right. The real estate broker chose a ring that’s “practically flawless, like her,” Los Angeles based Engagement Ring Concierge Michelle Demaree told HL. She estimated that the ring was worth more than a quarter of a million dollars. “Ariana Grande’s engagement ring is a striking 5 carat colorless oval with a stunning elongated 1:45 ratio and top VS clarity,” she explained.
The unique engagement ring featured an angled diamond set against a large pearl, which is believed to be a sentimental gift from Ari’s grandmother. Just a few months after he proposed in December 2020, the pair officially tied the knot in May 2021, and they looked so in love. “5.15.21,” she simply captioned the black-and-white image, referencing their wedding date.
Ariana’s Engagement Ring From Pete
Fans of the “7 Rings” singer would recall she was engaged to Pete Davidson in 2018. The former lovebirds started dating around May 2018, very shortly after Pete and his ex Cazzie David split. They quickly became engaged in June and it lasted until Oct. before they called things off for good. However, when he proposed, it was with a stunning, pear-cut ring worth $93,000. The three-carat, ring was designed by celebrity jeweler Greg Yun, who revealed Pete had reached out to him for help. “Pete called me at the end of May and said, ‘Look, I’m getting a ring. This is what I want.’ And I told him that I had the right ring for him,” Yuna told E!. “He didn’t tell me who it was for but told me to keep it a secret. He didn’t tell me anything about it.”
Almost one year after the breakup, in an Aug. 2019 cover story for Vogue, Ariana discussed how being engaged to Pete was a “distraction” and that nearly a year later, her ex Mac Miller‘s death was still “all-consuming.” “My friends were like, ‘Come! We’re gonna have a fun summer,’” Ariana said of moving to New York shortly after her breakup with Mac. “And then I met Pete, and it was an amazing distraction. It was frivolous and fun and insane and highly unrealistic, and I loved him, and I didn’t know him.”
When speaking of Mac, Ariana burst into tears. “I’m so sorry I’m crying. By no means was what we had perfect, but, like, f**k. He was the best person ever, and he didn’t deserve the demons he had. I was the glue for such a long time, and I found myself becoming…less and less sticky. The pieces just started to float away.”
