On Valentine’s Day 2019 Actor, Orlando Bloom popped the question to his girlfriend of three years Singer, Katy Perry with a stunningly unique engagement ring.
A few hours later Katy took to instagram to share their wonderful news and give everyone a first glimpse of her spectacular ruby and diamond floral inspired engagement ring. And we adore it!
According to Ronan Campbell, our private jeweller at DesignYard, “Based on the pictures shared, Katy’s centre stone is either a ruby or vivid pink diamond weighing approximately two and a half carats. The centre stone is complimented by a surrounding floral halo of eight white round brilliant cut diamonds also with a combined weight of approximately two and half carats. This is a beautiful, substantial and valuable ring. I’d imagine the gems are set in at least 18k yellow gold”. Ronan adds “It is hard to put an exact price on this ring without seeing it up close. It depends on the characteristics of the stones. If the centre stone is a rare pink diamond, we could be talking a value of around €4.5m, if not more”. This would make this ring one of the most expensive celebrity engagement rings.
Even before Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom’s engagement at DesignYard the halo style engagement ring has always been a popular choice. Our customers are drawn to the design. It is the perfect blend of traditional and contemporary, lending itself to many different looks depending on the colour and vibrancy of the centre stone chosen. The style also works for many different budgets.
Below is our version of Katy Perry’s engagement ring, we promise it won’t set you back €4.5m. This ring can also be made bespoke to any specification your heart desires.
