MGK, who popped the question last week in a video posted to Instagram, opened up about the unusual design of Fox’s ring.
“It’s a thoroughbred Colombian emerald, with no treatment,” he explained. “It was just carved into the teardrop, straight out of the mine. And the diamond was directly from Stephen. The concept is that the ring can come apart to make two rings. When it’s together, it’s held in place by a magnet. So you see how it snaps together? And then it forms an obscure heart. And you see this right here? The bands are actually thorns. So if she tries to take it off, it hurts.”
Elsewhere in the interview, MGK discussed why the couple chose to release footage of the proposal.
“We released it to control the narrative,” he said. “As opposed to someone just catching a weird cell phone picture of a ring on our hand and being like, whoa! But yeah, I didn’t expect it. I just recorded it on my cell phone. And it wasn’t like we had photographers or anything. It was just like me setting my phone against a cup.”
It was first reported that MGK and Fox were an item around May 2020, after they met on the set of their thriller Midnight in the Switchgrass.
The buzz surrounding their romance intensified later that month when Fox appeared in MGK’s “Bloody Valentine” music video. Weeks later, Fox’s estranged husband Brian Austin Green announced he and her had split after ten years of marriage. In July 2020, a month after MGK and Fox were spotted engaging in some PDA outside an L.A. bar, the couple made their relationship Instagram official.
