In an interview with Vogue, Machine Gun Kelly described how he and Stephen Webster designed the ring. “It’s a thoroughbred Colombian emerald, with no treatment. 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.
