Ariana Grande is engaged (opens in new tab) to her boyfriend of ten months, Los Angeles-based real estate agent Dalton Gomez. The 27-year-old singer announced the news in an Instagram post on Sunday afternoon. The gallery post included cute couple selfies of Ariana and Dalton (opens in new tab) as well as, of course, some obligatory engagement ring (opens in new tab) shots. Here's everything we know so far about the massive rock.
The massive ring is estimated to be worth six figures.
According to Page Six (opens in new tab), experts estimate that Ariana's engagement ring is worth at least $150,000.
"This sparkler would estimate around $200-300K," Shannon Delaney-Ron, the director of communications at JamesAllen.com (opens in new tab), told Page Six Style on Sunday.
Andrew Brown, the CEO of WP Diamonds (opens in new tab), had a slightly different estimate, but agreed the ring is worth at least six figures.
"This beautiful engagement ring looks to be an elongated 5-carat oval diamond, set at an angle and accented with a pearl," Brown told Page Six. "Assuming a high color and clarity combination, a custom ring such as this would retail around $150,000-$200,000."
It's at least five carats.
While Brown estimated the enormous oval-shaped diamond in the setting to be a 5-carat stone, Delaney-Ron thought it could be even larger, telling Page Six that it "appears to be an oval diamond, likely around 5-6 carats, offset next to a lustrous pearl on a thin platinum band."

Ariana Grande superfans were quick to point out a potential (and, if true, incredibly sweet) backstory for the ring (opens in new tab). In 2014, Ariana tweeted about a ring that her grandmother had made for her from a pearl from her late grandfather's tie-pin—and some fans think the same pearl was incorporated into the engagement ring.

"nonna had a ring made for me w/ the pearl from grandpa's tie pin. she says he told her in a dream it'd protect me. <3," the singer wrote along with a picture of the pearl ring she shared on Twitter.
Some fans took to Twitter to share their theories about the meaningful pearl.
