Once again, it’s time to offer congratulations to Ariana Grande on her engagement. Although for longtime fans of the singer, this is already a familiar experience.
It can be remembered that back in 2018, she was momentarily and messily engaged to Pete Davidson. This was before breaking that relationship off due to the premature and tremendously unforeseen death of yet another ex, Mac Miller.
Her relationship with current boyfriend, now fiancee, Dalton Gomez, has been blessed less dramatic yet hasn’t been significantly longer, either. Quarantining together has certainly brought the new couple close, but let’s keep in mind this is the guy who inspired “Positions,” a No. 1 hit with the most tepid, traditional lyrics a woman could release in the year 2020
Then there’s the subject of her engagement ring, which is a surprising setting that includes a large oval diamond and a pearl, set east to west on the band together. Eagle-eyed fans think they’ve uncovered the source of the unlikely pearl, as a family heirloom previously repurposed into a ring by Ariana’s grandmother that the singer shared back in 2014.
If this is the same pearl from her grandfather’s tie pin, transferred from this ring to her engagement band, then it’s definitely a sweet, meaningful gesture.
