Matty Healy Gave His Fiancée the Most Emo Engagement Ring Imaginable


Matty Healy saw the “thorny” ring Machine Gun Kelly gave Megan Fox and said, “Hold my beer.” The 1975 singer just got engaged to model and musician Gabbriette Bechtel (congrats!), and her ring is so perfectly indie rock.

It’s a custom ring made with a rare black diamond, and it’s…Carrie Bradshaw–coded? A jewelry expert told Page Six, “Black diamonds symbolize power, elegance, mystery and strength. Their popularity in engagement rings appears to have risen since Big gave Carrie a 5-carat black diamond engagement ring in the 2010 movie Sex and the City 2.” Sources also emphasized that such stones are very rare, but not incredibly valuable.

Bechtel rather nonchalantly announced the news of her engagement via her Instagram Stories on June 11, and his mom confirmed the news the next day. “I couldn’t be more thrilled,” Healy’s mother, Denise Welch, said on the program Loose Women on June 12. “She’s absolutely gorgeous.… We couldn’t be happier. She is everything that I would want in a daughter-in-law.”

Bechtel posted from a Charli XCX concert, and the pair go way back; Charli tapped Bechtel for an all-girl punk band she put together called Nasty Cherry, and there’s even a Netflix reality show about them. If you are surprised, intrigued, fascinated…babe, same! Need to go watch this immediately! Genuinely did not know you could put punk bands together like the Spice Girls, but I guess there’s no reason why not.

Despite courting controversy in the past, Matty Healy seems to have cleaned up his image lately, simply complimenting his ex Taylor Swift when asked about her latest album, which seems to have been inspired by their relationship. Healy and Bechtel have been together since at least September 2023, and have common interests like music and good food, per Cosmopolitan. And a similar funky taste in jewelry, it seems.
