On Dec. 20, Ariana Grande stunned fans when she flaunted her brand-new engagement ring on Instagram, offered to her by her sweetheart of less than a year, Dalton Gomez. The previous dancer turned realty magnate definitely understands how to select a sparkler, and now, engagement ring jewelry expert Jack Solow is sharing the story on how Gomez picked the best ring for his future bride-to-be in a special interview with E! News.
According to Solow, the engagement ring for the “thank u, next” vocalist—that includes an oval shaped diamond set beside a pearl—was prepared 5 to 6 weeks prior to Gomez proposed, as it “took some time to find that very special, unique diamond.”
“Dalton was involved in every step of the selection process through FaceTime and Zoom since he was on the west coast and I was here in my office in New York. He was very, very specific about what he wanted,” Solow shares. “He had very strong feelings about how he wanted this to look, a contemporary kind of way. It was his idea to do the diamond on an angle and he said to me we had to incorporate a pearl into the finished piece because it is very sentimentally special, the element of a pearl is very, very sentimentally special to Ariana. He wanted to include that in the ring.”
