A social media user took to TikTok to explain the family history behind Ariana Grande’s ring.

In a quick video on TikTok, one Ariana Grande fan explained the significance of her unique engagement ring that fans and fellow celebs can’t seem to get enough of.

“Years ago, Ariana posted that Nonna had a ring made for her with her grandpa’s pin, so it would always protect her,” the TikTok user started. 

“It looks like the same pearl on Dalton’s ring, so it looks like he upgraded her ring into a new engagement ring,” the user added. 

Ariana Grande herself gave some more insight about the pearl ring on Oct. 28, 2014, posting a picture of the gorgeous piece of jewelry with the caption, “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”

“And now it’s attached to ur beautiful engagement ring i’m so happy for u bby,” one fan wrote, while another said, “congrats my sweet angel !! u deserve thisss more than anyone.... i love u [hearts] so happy for both of u.”

While many fans were elated about Grande and Gomez’s engagement and her ring, some fans expressed their concerns about the “Thank U, Next” singer’s love life. 

“I’m not trying to be mean I love the sentiment but the diamond ring being offset ruins it for me. Happy for the queen though,” one TikTok user commented, while another wrote, “Sis is going to ruin that poor boy’s heart in about 2 months time when they break up.”

Ariana Grande’s engagement announcement came just one day before her new Netflix special premieres.
