They've been dating less than a year, but long enough to know if they're destined for each other. And Lana Del Rey's romance with Scottish rocker Barrie-James O'Neill seems to be getting serious after the two were spotted looking at homes for sale in Los Angeles on Saturday. The New Yorker was seen wearing a noticeably large diamond bauble on her engagement finger as she strolled down a sidewalk alongside her long-haired beau and a female companion.

Lana, 27, matched her fancy piece of jewelry with a white and bluish-grey patterned A-line frock that featured cut-outs at the sides and showed off her pale shapely legs. She sported blue flat-heeled loafers and red nails, and wore her long brown hair straight and parted to the side. It looked like they had a lot of ground to cover as all three carried print-outs of homes for sale.

Barrie-James looked rocker chic in light blue jeans, a mustard-yellow button-up shirt and Converse trainers, and he had a baseball cap perched on top of his tousled dark hair. In February it was reported that the American had been dating the Kassidy singer for around six months. 'They make a very unlikely couple but they seem to work, and bounce really well off one another,’ a source told the Daily Mirror at the time. And in April, Lana debuted her latest video for Summer Wine featuring the Kassidy singer as her onscreen love interest.

The property shopping spree was most likely a pleasant diversion from the controversy sparked by Lana's dissing of former friend Lady Gaga. Lana's song So Legit may be a reference to Gaga's rise to superstardom back in 2009, whilst Lana was still struggling to hit the charts. Del Rey refers to Gaga by her real name Stefani in one of the early verses of the song, singing: ‘Stefani, you suck, I know you're selling twenty million / Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg.’
