Ruby Rose and Phoebe Dahl have ended their engagement. The Orange is the New Black star said she would "forever treasure" the time she had spent with her former fiancée in a tweet confirming the split on Monday.

"@FAIRCLOTHSUPPLY remains very dear to my heart. I will forever treasure our time forever. I'm a better person because of all we shared," Ruby tweeted on Monday evening.

Phoebe replied with similar praise from the official Twitter account of her ethical clothing line, Faircloth & Supply.

"You have brought me to my best and I will always love you. I can't wait to see what the future brings for us," Phoebe wrote.

The 27-year-old, who is the granddaughter of author Roald Dahl, also confirmed the split in a statement to Us Weekly on Monday.

"After two wonderful years together, Ruby and I have decided to part ways," she said. "While we still love each other and support each other in every way, it is our mutual decision to part ways. Our break is not the result of any media speculation, and we want nothing but the best for each other.

"Thank you for respecting our privacy in this very difficult time."

Ruby and Phoebe got engaged in March 2014 after just three months of dating, and the fashion designer previously told HELLO! Fashion Monthly that it was "love at first sight".

She explained: "Do I believe in love at first sight… I didn't before Ruby but now I do. I have to. It happened to me – I met Ruby at a barbecue I threw a year and a half ago and we got engaged within about three months. It was all very instant."

It is believed that the couple's relationship ultimately suffered as they were forced to spend an increasing amount of time apart due to their busy careers, and it was an amicable decision to call time on their two year relationship.
