Anyone who watched Crazy Rich Asians will know what I'm talking about when I reference "the emerald ring".

It turns out that the epic piece of jewelry is not only real, but it belongs to none other than Michelle Yeoh.


For those who haven't seen Crazy Rich Asians yet, be warned that there are spoilers ahead. But you can catch up with the rest of us because the film is now available on 4K, Blu-ray and DVD here.

The end of Crazy Rich Asians was pure romcom perfection when Henry Goulding's character, Nick Young, chased down Rachel Chu (Constance Wu) to propose to her with his ever-disapproving mother's ring.

Nick's mother, Eleanor, is played by Michelle Yeoh, and she refuses to accept Rachel until after Rachel confronts her during an epic game of Mahjong.

As a token of her approval, Eleanor gives her gorgeous emerald ring to Nick to propose to Rachel with.

The audience never sees Eleanor give Nick the go-ahead, but we all understood that she accepted Rachel when Nick opened the ring box and the epic emerald was revealed.

In an interview with BuzzFeed News, Michelle Yeoh revealed that the ring is, in fact, real.

Not only that, but the ring belongs to Michelle Yeoh, herself!

When asked if the ring was a gift or if she got it for herself, Yeoh responded like the boss that she is.

"I don't wait for people to give me presents. If I want flowers, I'm going to send them to me."

People are all about Yeoh's style of self-love.










Goals.

When looking at a resume, it's easy to understand how prospective employers will assume someone is very intelligent based on their education and past experience.

But one shouldn't only assume someone's intelligence based on what they read.

More often than not, one can tell rather quickly that someone possesses above-average intelligence, based on how they speak, how they behave, or other telling details.

With each passing year of a marriage, couples will often discover that while they don't love each other any less than they once did, that spark their relationship used to carry has faded.

This will often lead these couples to look for ways to spice things up a bit.

Among the more popular experiments is inviting a third member to their bedroom.

Enticing as this prospect is, however, it's also easy to be intimidated by the reality of it, or even the mere suggestion of it.

"You either die the hero or live long enough to become the villain."

Though not necessarily a universal truth, all of us have witnessed unfortunate moments in our lives where we've seen this saying become a reality.

Be it seeing our favorite public figures take a serious fall from grace, someone we know and admire eventually disappointing us in a devastating manner, or even seeing ourselves turn into someone we promised we'd never become.

Sometimes we do things that have to be done.

And some of those things live in life's gray area of right and wrong.

What comes as a surprise to some is when we don't care if we're wrong.

We may still technically be in the right.

But morally and ethically, there may be some issues.

But still, many people don't care.
