Zooey and Jonathan
Zooey Deschanel is an American actress who also models, writes songs, sings, and has a net worth of around $25 million. Most people know her from roles in “Failure to Launch,” “500 Days of Summer,” and “New Girl.” Zooey’s acting debut in 1999 was in the comedy “Mumford.” Following that, she acted in “Almost Famous,” which won a Golden Globe Award for Best Film – Musical or Comedy.

Jonathan Scott is a producer, real estate agent, magician, and reality TV star with a net worth of $100 million. He’s featured in “Brother vs. Brother” and “Buying and Selling,” but he’s best-known for the real estate show “Property Brothers,” which he co-hosts with his twin brother Drew. Jonathan and Drew have a home goods and media empire called Scott Brothers Global, which generates $500+ million in yearly revenue.
How Did They Meet and Get Chirping?
In August 2019, Zooey met Jonathan while filming a “Carpool Karaoke” episode, where Zooey and her sister faced off against Jonathan and his brother Drew. They instantly connected and became friends when filming was over. In September 2019, Zooey and Jonathan held hands together during a dinner date. Later that month, they confirmed their relationship by kissing in the front row during a shooting of “Dancing with the Stars.”
They first posted on Instagram in October while on a double date at Universal Studios’ “Halloween Horror Nights with Linda and Drew.” The post was a group shot with Jonathan holding her in his arms. Zooey attended a major Scott family event, Jonathan’s older brother J.D.’s wedding later that month. During COVID-19, the couple further strengthened their bond as they quarantined together.
In June 2020, Zooey and Jonathan purchased a five-bedroom home together and revealed pictures of the completed property after renovating it for two years.
Zooey’s Personalized Engagement Ring
We can imagine that Jonathan and Zooey’s ring designer worked closely with them to create her beautiful, unique engagement ring. It’s set in white gold with three large floral stone arrangements with a central flower of round diamonds. The flower petals are composed of pink and purple sapphires. The stones on the sides are around 3-carats each, and the large purple stone centerpiece looks like a royal purple garnet, which is Zooey’s birthstone.
The beautiful three-stone ring isn’t your traditional celebrity engagement ring, usually grounded by a center stone. The interesting asymmetry and floral design combined with the three-stone arrangement give this ring a timeless feel. But it can be personalized, which is excellent for a ring you’d like to pass down. Our expert, Benjamin Khordipour, estimates the cost at around $250,000, but it may be more depending on the quality of the diamonds.
