Katy Perry shows off pricey ruby ring from John Mayer: cheap looking or pretty?

Katy Perry

Here are photos of Katie Perry and John Mayer looking loved up on Valentine’s Day, despite all sorts of sketchiness in this couple with reported cheating by both parties.

John and Katy were out on a date an Italian restaurant in these photos, and Katy was showing off a new ruby ring on her significant finger. The ring, which looks rather cheap to me (but I don’t like yellow gold), supposedly set John back £30,000, which equals approximately $46,563. So I guess those rumors about John going ring hunting were all too true, but don’t worry just yet. According to an insider who spoke with The Sun, this is only a “ commitment ring,” and in the eyes of John, commitment probably has an incredibly relative meaning:

John Mayer has set himself up for a massive dent in the bank balance if he decides to propose to Katy Perry.

She was pictured on Valentine’s Day with a ruby ring on her wedding finger.

But instead of getting engaged, John bought the missus a commitment ring to celebrate them moving in together.

He bought the £s;30k ruby a couple of weeks ago in Montecito, California.

Pricey … the ruby rock set John Mayer back £s;30k

A source said: “He’s trying so hard to prove that his bad behaviour towards women has changed now.

“He saw the ring and thought it was a perfect gift for Valentine’s Day.

“She loved it. There’s no way she’s ready to get married yet so a commitment ring is perfect.”

Especially when it costs that much.

Someone’s publicist also called People to say that John was “really super nice” while shopping for this ring, which was reportedly a one-of-a-kind piece created by jeweler Daniel Gibbings. The source further stresses that Katy and John are definitely not engaged. Thank goodness. As for this dress that Katy wore to dinner? It reminds me of my childhood needlepoint creations. Awful.

    Ruby is my birth stone…it’s sad to see it bastardised into such a tacky looking ring.

  2. marie says:

    the ring itself is not horrible, but the giver is.. commitment ring from Mayer = gross..

  3. MrsBPitt says:

    I don’t think its bad if its just a valentines gift and not an engagement ring…If my man gave me that for VD, I certainly wouldn’t throw a fit!!

  4. dcypher1 says:

    Why is she wearing a mumu? So fug.

  5. Sisi says:

    The color of the stone doesn’t look like it’s high quality (not pigeon-blood red), and the heart is … Cliche and basic. So yes it looks cheap.

  6. Eleonor says:

    That ring looks cheaper than the Jessica Simpson one!

  7. c'est la vie says:

    Look they went shopping at Fred Segal too.
    How sweet.

    I can’t believe she actually got a ring out of him.

  8. MissR says:

    I didn’t know we had so many ring experts here. To me it looks fine and I’m just happy he bought her a gift for Vday.

    As for Katy, I watched her movie and I felt really bad about her. I felt like she was really tryin to make her marriage work with Russell and she was really sad after it ended. I’m glad she looks better this days and she seems more cautious. I know it’s John Mayer she’s dating but he also looks like he’s in love with her.

  9. Camille says:

    Ruby heart shaped ring?! Cheap and classless like her.

  10. Hautie says:

    I don’t find the ring a bad looking one.

    But I find it incredibly hard to believe anyone paid over $300.00 for it.

    So I refuse to believe that it cost anywhere near $46,000. Not even close.

    Do you know what kind of ring you can purchase for that kind of crazy cash?!

  11. E says:

    My wedding/engagement rings are yellow gold so I am biased & love yellow gold… But I personally don’t like red gemstones (even though my birthstone is a garnet) and EWWW the heart shape! Tacky. How was that worth almost $50k?? I find it hard to believe.

  12. Agnes says:

    that’s a really fug ring…

  13. bns says:

    I can’t believe they’re still together.

  14. Mika says:

    I like her outfit. And the ring.

  15. some bitch says:

    Katy Perry is so boring.

  16. G says:

    Radar says around $5000. which looks more like it and would be 3000 pounds.

    I think yellow gold is making a comeback.

  17. Enn says:

    The ugliness of the dress is compounded by the boots and my gran’s handbag.

    As for the ring, meh. Some people love heart shaped gems, and some people hate them. In my experience as a jeweler there is no inbetween.

  18. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    Frankly, I think her ring is beautiful and I’m pleasantly surprised John Mayer had it in him. :)

    So if your boyfriend/girlfriend/husband/S.O. gifted you with a ring similar to Katy Perry’s ring above, you’d complain that the red is not ‘pigeon’ blood red enough, tell them it looks cheap and classless and you really hate the ‘cliche,’ and then throw it in their face?

    Some young ladies today seem to be a hard, cynical bunch. Gold engagement/wedding rings look cheap and are old fashion? Ruby hearts and heart-shaped jewelery is ‘cliche,’ even on a day identified with and traditionally celebrated by ‘red’ and hearts?


    • Erinn says:

      My engagement ring is yellow gold, and certainly does not look cheap. I think a lot of disdain is to do with the couple rather than the gift. Though, I’m really no fan of that ring… It looks a little on the costume jewelry side of things. But I think that’s because we don’t see the huge stones that people in Hollywood have… they just automatically look tacky to us.

    • yolo112 says:

      lol.. I agree…and they are judging it from a picture that’s been SUPER blown up and zoomed in on. If I had to guess, based on Katy’s sometimes bubble gum style, this ring is probably perfect for her. I’m not a fan of yellow gold or red stones but a Valentine prezzie from the person you’re dating it always fun to receive.

  19. teenydj says:

    Shouldn’t she be wearing the heart facing out, not facing her?

    • KellyinSeattle says:

      I heard that for heart rings, you wear them the way Katy has it on to show you receiving love, and when you give it, it means you are giving love. Something like that….stupid, in their case. The ring looks like it came out of a toy machcine.

  20. Madriani's Girl says:

    Oh honey, when a guy gives you a “commitment” ring or a “promise” ring, you’d best know he has ZERO plans to marry you. That sort of thing is just to shut you up about marriage so he can keep milking you for whatever it is you have that he wants, be it great sex, money, stability, a beard, anything. And yes, in keeping with the true tradition of “commitment” rings, that one is ugly.

  21. lisa says:

    it looks like it might be a claddagh which i think of as a very traditional setting, not a tacky red heart. although i’m not really crazy about them. often claddaghs are given as sort of promise rings. did he give any of this other girlfriends anything more than a western omelette the day after? it may not be much but it looks like progress.

  22. mia girl says:

    Hard to say how committed he might be to Katy Perry… but so far, I’m impressed by how committed he is to repairing his image. The boy is all in.

    With Mayer and Ashton Kutcher slowly turning things around, and even
    Tiger Woods in new relationship, 2013 may end up being the
    “year of the rehabbed douches”!

  23. Shira says:

    Surely from a gumball machine, right?

  24. Madriani's Girl says:

    I’m pretty sure that dress was in a frame on the original “Three’s Company” set only the designs were in orange and the background was avocado green.

  25. SamiHami says:

    Yellow gold is beautiful, as evidenced by my own engagement and wedding rings. It’s always been my preference.

    I think the ring is very pretty and I don’t get why so many people are being so insulting about it.

  26. blonde on the dock says:

    These two are a mismatch! How did this ever happen?

  27. Jenny says:

    Every celeb guy gets “custom designed” ring. “Custom” = How much do I have to pay you to NOT sell this ring to anyone else?

  28. anonymous fan says:

    Forget the ugly ring.What the hell is Katy wearing? The dress is worse.I will never understand why every beautiful actress and pop star wants to sleep with this man.I don’t get his appeal at all.If Katy dumps him,up next:Jennifer Lawrence.

  29. Toot says:

    This seems like a strange match, but Scorpio and Libra can be excellent matches, so it may work with them.

    I like yellow gold so the ring looks alright to me.

  30. blonde on the dock says:

    I get the feeling he’s probably great in the sack. Please don’t ask me why.

  31. Stoner says:

    I don’t know what’s worse – that ring, or those shoes and that purse with that dress.

  32. Caroline says:

    The ring looks too cliche.
