Some die-hard Titanic fans have always speculated that Leonardo DiCaprio would one day present Kate Winslet with a ring… only most fans expected it to be a wedding ring rather than a friendship ring.

But adorably enough, DiCaprio has given his best friend of several decades a piece of engraved jewelry that symbolizes his love for her. It may be platonic love, but clearly, their relationship means a lot to him.

Are Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet still friends?

DiCaprio and Winslet share an unbreakable bond that is still just as prominent as it was in the ’90s. In fact, their relationship has only grown stronger over the years, and they have exchanged several meaningful life moments together.

“He is my closest friend in the world,” she said of DiCaprio in 2016.

And in a recent 2021 interview with Winslet, she couldn’t help but gush about their everlasting friendship. Speaking on their Titanic days, she tells Intelligence Squared,

“We were so connected and so close, and really tight. We were a little unit, and that was quite unusual. It is unusual. He would have done anything for me, and I would have done anything for him. You know, we stood up for each other and quite literally held each other’s hands.”

And according to a source close to the celebrities, the two of them talk “constantly.”

“Kate and Leo had a brother-and-sister chemistry from the start,” an insider revealed to Britain’s Heat Magazine. “They’ve always been there for each other. They may not always be in the same country, but they speak on the phone constantly.”

Leonardo DiCaprio has given Kate Winslet a ring to symbolize their friendship

According to Winslet, DiCaprio has given her a piece of jewelry that symbolizes their impossibly close connection. After starring together in the film Revolutionary Road, the actor presented his BFF with a ring. Apparently, the ring is engraved with something quite personal on the inside, yet understandably, Winslet wants to keep it private.

“Yes, [Leo’s ring] is engraved on the inside,” she told Flare Magazine, “but I’m not going to tell you what it says.”

Not only did DiCaprio give her a ring, but he also gave her a necklace that she wore on the cover of Time Magazine.

“Leo gave me this necklace,” she said, pointing to the piece of jewelry she wore on the cover of the magazine. “It has a little golden leaf on the bottom. Leo gave it to me.”

Did Kate Winslet ever have feelings for her ‘Titanic’ co-star?

Many fans wonder whether or not Winslet and DiCaprio secretly have feelings for each other. And although they often laugh off the rumors while insisting they are merely platonic, Winslet has once shared a moment with DiCaprio that made her confused about her feelings for him.

In fact, it was while filming Titanic that she “sort of” fell for DiCaprio. (Or at least, Jack.)

As Rolling Stone reveals,

“Winslet has only one sweet regret about her relationship with DiCaprio. It was During the scene in which Rose and Jack make love in a Renault touring car in the hold of the ship: steamed windows, trembling actors. ‘Doing that scene,’ she says, ‘it so wasn’t us. And yet, we were so locked into what all that had to be about. The Rose in me was really sort of loving the Jack in him, actually. And even though I didn’t feel that way about Leo, it was quite nice to sort of feel that way in the scene. It was quite lovely. And then, y’know, the camera stopped rolling, and he gets up and walks off, and the scene’s done. And I remember lying there thinking, ‘What a shame that’s over.’ Because it was quite nice. It was.'”
