’90 Day Fiancé’: It’s Not an Engagement Ring — Fans React to Colt Johnson’s New Necklace
Relax 90 Day Fiancé fans, it’s not what you think. Previously, we’d reported that Colt Johnson looked to be preparing an engagement ring for his new flame, Jess Caroline. Colt Johnson posted an image of a ring design to his Instagram story, requesting the help of a jeweler.
It turns out the project wasn’t an engagement ring after all — possibly to the disappointment of his fans. In fact, it’s not even close.
Putting the pieces together
When Colt Johnson posted a ring design to his Instagram story alongside a giant diamond emoji, many 90 Day Fiancé fans thought the reality star was getting ready to pop the question. Johnson has found love again with a new Brazilian girlfriend, Jess Caroline, and the two seem quite happy together.
So, when Johnson asked if anyone who follows him knows an experienced jewelry maker, it seemed like a reasonable assumption. However, Colt Johnson proved us all wrong this time.
On September 20, Johnson uploaded an image of his completed project to his Instagram. It looks as if Johnson had a necklace designed. The pendant of the necklace is in the shape of a puzzle piece, and it has a C engraved on it — possible for “Caroline,” though many fans seem to be assuming it stands for “Colt.”
Johnson captioned the image, “Hello, quick update on this piece as I know I received a lot of questions on the item. The silver casting completed and the item is just simply gorgeous. A personal thanks to @slowackjewelry for helping me design and bring to life my imagination. Super easy to work with! If you need any beautiful jewelry, give them a dm. I should get the item soon!”
Fans react, some throw shade
While the piece does look well-made, some fans were a little confused by what Johnson called his “design.” It is a simple puzzle piece with a C on it, after all, and fans felt as if Johnson was giving himself a little more credit than he deserved.
One fan wrote, “I’m confused. I have seen this a thousand times. Just exactly how is this your design..???”
Another added, “Just kind of funny that he said, ‘bring my imagination to life’ … I mean… what imagination does this require? Lol … made me laugh.”
Others pointed out the connection to autism that the puzzle piece now has. One asked Johnson, “I know you are aware of the symbolism of the puzzle piece but I just wondered if you got it because of autism?”
Another fan asked, “Is there a family member with autism, since the puzzle piece is their universal symbol?”
Perhaps Johnson will reveal more in future posts.
Colt Johnson flourishes in a new relationship
Meanwhile, it seems as if the 90 Day Fiancé star’s new relationship is going strong. Johnson found love again after Larissa Dos Santos Lima in Jess Caroline.
Caroline posted about Johnson on Facebook, writing, “We are together for a while. [Anyone] who knows me knows that I’m chill and have good intentions, also that I don’t judge people’s choices. … I’m with him because I want and because he wants.”
Caroline also made it clear that she’s not out to get Lima in any way. “I know about his past and have watched the show. I don’t defend him or her. It was just a relationship that didn’t work out and life goes on. I’m not going to be rude to anyone,” she wrote.
