Matty Healy, the frontman of The 1975, is officially off the market.

The news was confirmed by Bechtel on Instagram, where she shared photos of her engagement ring with her 829,000 followers.

A Unique Proposal

Healy proposed with a rare black diamond ring. Black diamonds are known for their unique, avant-garde appeal.

According to Ajay Anand, CEO of Rara Carat, "Black diamonds are a cool, avant-garde take on the traditional engagement ring. Famous black diamonds include the Spirit of de Grisogono, Black Star of Africa, and Black Orlov."

While black diamonds are rare, they are not necessarily the most valuable.

Experts estimate Bechtel's ring to be worth around 103,000 kroner, a substantial but not exorbitant amount.

Bechtel announced the engagement on Instagram, sharing several photos of the ring and expressing her excitement.

"It is very abrupt to have to marry The 1975," she joked in a post that coincided with a Charli XCX concert.

The couple has been dating since September 2023.

Before this relationship, Healy had a brief but notable romance with Taylor Swift. Although they officially dated for only a month, rumors suggest they had an on-and-off relationship for nearly a decade.
