  • Ariana Grande debuts her engagement ring on Instagram, featuring an oval cut diamond and pearl on a gold band

  • Fans think the pearl might have a hidden meaning for Ariana, with a connection to her late grandfather

In an unexpected but exciting turn of events, Ariana Grande is engaged to boyfriend Dalton Gomez, with the singer announcing the news on Instagram earlier this evening. Perhaps one of the biggest surprises of all, though, is Ariana's gloriously untraditional engagement ring.

For those playing at home, Ari's ring features two stones: an oval cut diamond set alongside an ivory pearl in a gold band.

Slide through to see a close up of Ariana's unique ring:

But fans think there's a sweet back story to the ring, with the pearl bearing a striking resemblance to another piece of jewellery that Ariana referenced years ago.

Rewind the clock back to 2014 and Ariana tweeted the below photo of a ring her nonna had made for her, featuring a pearl with a sweet family connection:

"nonna had a ring made for me w/ the pearl from grandpa's tie pin," wrote Ari. "she says he told her in a dream it'd protect me."

And, to be fair, this pearl looks a LOT like the one in Ari's engagement ring, don't ya think?

Twitter is very here for the touching nod to the singer's late grandfather, with fans posting about the connection:

While it's yet to be confirmed whether this is the exact same pearl, chances are pearls hold a special place in Ariana's heart and it's likely no coincidence that her engagement ring also includes one.

Congrats again to the happy couple!
