Daily Mail has the first clear photos of Grande after news of her engagement to Pete Davidson broke, and the ring that Davidson gave her really is massive. It has a big teardrop-shaped pear diamond centre stone — a nod to Grande's song "No Tears Left to Cry," presumably — and even the long lens of the paparazzo's camera could catch the stone in full splendour.
But the photos also confirm this is not the ring's debut. She's been photographed wearing the same ring since 2 June 2018, when she performed at Wango Tango — meaning that Grande and Davidson may have gotten engaged early June, days after they went Instagram official on 30 May 2018. (Some fans believe Grande may have hinted that her ring is the Tiffany & Co. Soleste Pear engagement ring; prices for that start around USD14,500.) TMZ reported earlier that the ring is a USD93,000 (approximately SGD $124, 360) VVS1 clarity diamond set and that Davidson picked it up in May.
The ring, which was specifically made for Grande, took two weeks to complete and was commissioned by New York City jeweller Greg Yuna.
Grande also didn't really hide her ring while taking photos with fans in Disneyland, where Grande and Davidson spent their evening with family and friends:
Grande shared several Instagram stories of Davidson with her in the amusement park. Daily Mail reports that she and Davidson were seen exchanging "passionate kisses" while waiting in line to go on Space Mountain, but hey, when you're celebrating your engagement going public...

Ahead of the photos' release, Grande confirmed the reports she and Davidson are getting married on Twitter, responding to fans congratulating her on her upcoming wedding. But she's been wearing the ring for practically two weeks, so it's not like she's really been hiding.
