Megan Fox’s Moi et Toi diamond & emerald engagement ring
Megan Fox has announced her engagement to rockstar Machine Gun Kelly, setting the internet ablaze with pictures of her incredible engagement ring. The two have been dating for roughly a year and a half after meeting on set of indie film Midnight In The Switchgrass. Megan says she knew he was the one the moment she laid eyes on him:
“I knew right away that he was what I call a twin flame. Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time’, she said. ‘We’re actually two halves of the same soul’.

Following a whirlwind romance, including some history-making red carpet couples look, Megan and Machine Gun Kelly became engaged outside the Spa Botanicó at the Ritz-Carlton Dorado Beach in Puerto Rico under a banyan tree where the couple says they first fell in love.

The diamond and emerald engagement ring Machine Gun Kelly presented to Megan Fox is as lush and curvaceous as the great Banyan tree he proposed underneath. Made in a split double-band design, diamonds on either side of the knife edge band profile to evoke a bough of thorns. At the ring’s centre an icy pear cut diamond and rich bluish-green pear emerald are brought together to form an asymmetrical ‘obscure heart’. With the central gemstones meeting in a unique offset Moi et Toi style, it feels as though the diamond—his birthstone—is kissing the emerald from above. Whereas the emerald—her birthstone—offers support to the gemstone above. We expect there are multiple meanings and references entwined into this sinuous stunner of a ring.

Moi et Toi engagement rings are one of the biggest engagement ring trends to emerge in recent years, kicked off by celebrities such as Emily Ratajowski who used the design style for her own ring. But the legacy of this ring is long and rich, dating back to the 1950s when Jackie Kennedy brought the Moi et Toi into the spotlight. Her diamond and emerald Moi et Toi ring is one of the most famous engagement rings in history.
The quality of the gemstones used in Megan’s engagement ring is incredibly high. We estimate the diamond to be around 3ct and of a VVS or Flawless clarity grade. The emerald seems to be slightly larger at around 4ct, with a high clarity and rich depth of colour. Set upon a platinum band with diamond pavé, we estimate this engagement ring is worth about £140,000.
Megan’s ring is a custom engagement ring design, tying in elements dear to her and MGK’s relationship. A custom engagement ring is a beautiful way to express an original sentiment that reflects your own unique story. Below, we have created our own interpretation of Megan’s ring, featuring a pear cut diamond and emerald set upon a platinum pavé. This ring begins at £1,950, excluding the centre gemstones.
