Ariana Grande has officially switched from '7 Rings' to just one dazzler.

Over the weekend, Grande received her Christmas gift from beau Dalton Gomez quite early—a sparkly engagement ring. Excited eagle-eyed fans took extra notice of the pearl in Grande's ring, which sparked theories that Gomez added a subtle tribute to Grande's grandfather to the piece.

Grande's grandfather Frank Grande passed away in 2014. A few months later, Grande posted a photo on Twitter of a ring that her grandmother designed for her. '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.' she wrote at the time.

Fast forward to this past weekend when Grande shared the photo of her engagement ring, which featured a pearl nestled next to a large oval diamond and a gold band.

According to Shannon Delaney-Ron, spokeswoman for the popular jeweller James Allen, Grande's ring 'appears to be an oval diamond, likely around 5-6 carats, offset next to a lustrous pearl on a thin platinum band. This sparkler would estimate around $200-300k.'

'Forever n then some,' Grande captioned a series of photos on her Instagram, including her engagement announcement. Grande and Gomez were first spotted together in February and have been quarantining together. The hitmaker officially confirmed she was off the market in the Stuck With U video released on May 8.

Months later, Grande shared a bunch of photos for Gomez's birthday that gave fans a glimpse into their relationship. 'hbd to my baby my best friend my fav part of all the days :) i love u,' she wrote.
