Megan Fox and Machine Gun Kelly are engaged, the couple announced on Wednesday — and of course everything from the engagement itself to the ring is extra af. What else would you expect from one of Hollywood’s most unconventional couples?
“In July of 2020 we sat under this banyan tree. We asked for magic. We were oblivious to the pain we would face together in such a short, frenetic period of time. Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma,” Fox wrote on Instagram alongside a video of the engagement that took place on January 11.
She continued: “Somehow a year and a half later, having walked through hell together, and having laughed more than I ever imagined possible, he asked me to marry him. And just as in every lifetime before this one, and as in every lifetime that will follow it, I said yes…and then we drank each other’s blood.”
But Machine Gun Kelly didn’t just put an ring on it. He designed the ring himself, and it’s loaded with romantic symbolism. Following their engagement announcement, MGK shared a video of Fox’s engagement ring on Instagram, revealing the special meaning behind the massive, two-stone stunner.
“I know tradition is one ring, but i designed it with Stephen Webster to be two: the emerald (her birthstone) and the diamond (my birthstone) set on two magnetic bands of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love,” he wrote in the caption.
According to reporting by PageSix, the stones in Fox’s engagement ring appear to be 4 or 5 carats each, putting the ring’s value at an estimated $300,000 to $400,000.
“[MGK] wanted something that was completely original and meaningful to both Megan and himself. He fed me lots of material in an almost lyrical form,” Webster told Vogue. “I used this to create the two rings which become one. I used magnets embedded in the gold to attract the two rings together when worn as one. Possibly the most romantic story I have had to work with.”
On Instagram, the jeweler shared more about the ring’s design: “The design features two interlocking Thorn bands, each side holding one of the two perfectly shaped pear-shape gems. Created in 18ct white Gold, pavé set with colourless natural Diamonds. The Diamond is a D colour antique cut and the Emerald an extraordinary completely untreated Colombian gem.”
Fox and MGK began dating in 2020, and have considered themselves soulmates — or “twin flames” — from the start of their relationship. “Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has like ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time,” Fox told Lala Kent on her podcast. “So we’re actually two halves of the same soul, I think. And I said that to him almost immediately, because I felt it right away.”
Since going public, their relationship can only be described as intense, and we can only imagine what their wedding will be like. Until then, we’ll be swooning over her stunning engagement ring.
