Some people didn’t even know rap superstar Nicki Minaj and Meek Mill were dating when she seemingly announced their engagement on Instagram and Twitter. She didn’t exactly say that Meek, whose real name is Robert Williams, put a ring on her finger, but it's almost confirmed -- except that she didn’t use any words to caption her post. This image was emoji only.

Anyone who is fluent in the Japanese picture letters -- which is most people with a smartphone -- figured out what she meant, though. There were emojis of a yellow heart, which resembles her ring, a diamond, several faces with hearts for eyes and a monkey covering his face.

But enough of emoji, let’s talk about the rock! Meek apparently pulled out all the stops for the rapper. "This looks like a 15-carat fancy yellow heart modified brilliant cut diamond mounted in platinum with a double halo of white pavé diamonds," Morgan Shara, who works with MASbisjoux jewelry, told E! News. "This would retail for approximately $500,000 ... " Shara continued that the diamond "looks like the natural fancy colored diamond trend that is continuing full steam ahead."

Other celebrities who have colored rings are Scarlett Johansson, Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, Nicole Richie, Kristen Bell, Olivia Wilde, Blake Lively and Jessica Simpson.

Though some people might not be familiar with their relationship, Meek openly spoke about Minaj to XXL Wednesday before the engagement news spread. “That’s my baby right there. S--t real,” he said about his fiancée.

"Both Meek and Nicki have been spending amazing quality time together lately and have gotten extremely close these past few months," an insider told E! News. "It may seem like it all is happening very quickly but Nicki and Meek are in this 100. They truly love each other."
