Katy Perry’s mom also shared many pictures of their engagement on her Facebook, even posting a close-up picture of the ring. The engagement ring is said to be worth $5 million dollars. Although the ring was absolutely stunning, many people were making comments about how the ring was very similar to the one Orlando Bloom proposed to his ex-wife Miranda Kerr with in 2010; Both similarly shaped flower rings, except for the colors which were very different. Many people found this a bit awkward, but Katy Perry seemed to love her $5 million dollar engagement ring.
