AFTER more than a year of dating, actress Megan Fox, 35, has gotten engaged to boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly.
On Wednesday, Fox and Kelly, whose real name is Colson Baker, announced the news on their Instagram profiles.
What is Megan Fox’s ring worth?
Kelly proposed to Fox with a ring that he designed with British jeweler Stephen Webster, according to his Instagram post of a close-up of the ring.
Jeweler and buyer at jewellerybox Michelle Tacdol commented on Fox’s “ jaw-dropping engagement ring as unconventional as the couple themselves.”
Tacdol said that the “heart-shaped ‘Toi et Moi’ (aka You and Me) style ring loaded with symbolism.
“Two magnetic pave diamond-studded bands of platinum are straddled by two pear-shaped gemstones of over 2 carats, a diamond on the left and an emerald on the right. The ring is worth well over £50,000.”

This value equates to about $68,000 in USD.
The average price for a Webster ring, according to what is listed on the jeweler’s website, is $48,000.
What is the meaning behind Megan Fox’s ring?
Kelly wrote in the caption of his Instagram post that the diamond on the ring represents his birthstone, while the emerald represents Megan’s birthstone.
The stones were 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.”
On the meaning of the ring, Tacdol said: “Because of their exceptional durability, diamonds are used in engagement rings to signify strength, health, good fortune and a long life.
“Emerald green is considered to be the colour of growth and rebirth, while the gem itself symbolises true love and fidelity; very apt for the unison of twin flames, as the couple [has] been described by Megan, who felt a divine connection to MGK as soon as she met him on the set of ‘Midnight in the Switchgrass.’”
What did Megan Fox say about the engagement?
Fox reflected on their relationship and released a video of their engagement on Instagram, which took place on January 11, 2022.
In her caption, she wrote: “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,” she continued in her caption. “Unaware of the work and sacrifices the relationship would require from us but intoxicated off of the love. And the karma.
“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.”
