Sources have sworn that Kylie Jenner’s relationship with Timothée Chalamet was “not serious”, but its highly symbolic insignificance may suggest otherwise.
The makeup tycoon posted an Instagram Stories photo from her private jet on Tuesday, clad in a summer floral Dôen Stanza Dress ($298), pearl earrings from Chanel, and a Cartier Trinity Ring ($1,570) on her left ring finger.
According to the jeweler’s website, the signature Cartier design dates back to 1924 and has “become a symbol of life’s most important relationships” in the decades since.
The ring’s three interlocking bands made of pink, yellow and white gold symbolize love, loyalty and friendship respectively.
While the first Trinity ring was made for the French poet and playwright Jean Cocteau, the style is favored by Hollywood icons such as Grace Kelly and Gary Cooper and today’s stars such as Adele, Eva Mendes and Gwyneth Paltrow.
The Trinity line, which includes necklaces, earrings and bracelets, even has the royal stamp of approval; Princess Diana often wore a triple band Cartier ring, and Kate Middleton also featured in a few Trinity pieces.
Moreover, Chalamet has been a Cartier ambassador since 2021.
The 25-year-old Jenner has been spotted in many Cartier jewelery in the past, but she looks like she’s new to this exclusive ring collection – and her debut comes just two weeks after she was seen leaving her boyfriend’s Beverly Hills home.
Since dating speculation began swirling around the two in early April, Jenner has been spotted walking in and out of the 27-year-old “Dune” actor’s home several times, and the couple has also been photographed grabbing tacos.
Insiders downplayed their flirtation at first, saying that Jenner was “open to see where things were going” and kept things “fun” and “casual” with Chalamet.
But earlier this month, a source told Us Weekly that the couple “spending a lot more time together and growing closer as the days go by.”
They also said that several members of Jenner’s family, including her sister Kendall and mother Kris, have reportedly already met her boyfriend and “absolutely approve of their dating”.

Still, it’s worth noting that Jenner wears rings. HE finger before making any plans to walk down the aisle.
In March 2022, she ignited engagement rumors with on-again partner Travis Scott by showing off two rings in the same figure, both from Cartier – including the ring that looks like a real wedding ring from the brand.
Considering that Jenner and Scott broke up for the tenth time over the holidays (and their mom of two has since moved in with someone new), it seems like these diamonds aren’t forever.
