American pop singer Katy Perry’s engagement ring was bought in Dublin.

Her fiancé, Lord of the Rings and Pirates of the Caribbean star Orlando Bloom, bought the antique red ring at Delphi Antiques in Powerscourt Townhouse shopping centre in central Dublin.

The ruby and diamond flower ring is a centuries-old original collector’s item and is estimated to have cost the English actor around €4.8 million, according to Evoke.ie.

The couple got engaged on Valentine’s Day 2019 and Katy confirmed the news at the time with an Instagram post showing off her new rock captioned "full bloom."

Rumours that the ring was bought in the Dublin city centre shop surfaced when Delphi Antique’s official Instagram account re-posted Katy’s photo on their Stories.

Declan Corrigan, who owns Delphi Antiques, said that he would never release the identity of someone who purchased jewellery in the shop, but confirmed that any customer photos shared by the business were products bought in-store.

“We would never, ever confirm the identity of anyone who purchases anything from us. We take privacy very, very seriously,” he said.

“Either we post pictures that clients have bought with their permission, or if customers wish to post their images to our pages we share those. We don’t ever post pictures of items from any other shops.”
