Songstress Ariana Grande may have tied the knot with luxury real estate agent Dalton Gomez, but there is still plenty of attention on the rock on her finger.
The jewel in question is her engagement ring which features an oval-shaped diamond at a tilted angle alongside a pearl, set on what appears to be a platinum band.
The inclusion of the pearl is both unusual and ripe with sentimental value; fans have speculated that the marine gem is likely a remount of the pearl from a ring her grandmother had made for her in 2014.
Additionally, the pearl was originally sourced from her grandfather’s tie pin. According to the singer, her nonna had a dream that the pearl would protect her.
But aside from the pearl, the oval shape of the diamond itself (estimated to be approximately five carats) is also of much interest: according to SEO (search engine optimisation) platform Semrush, the most searched engagement ring shape of 2021 is oval, with 28,330 monthly searches.
