Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Rings From Kanye West and Kris Humphries: Which Is Bigger?
Some girls just have all the luck with jewelry —Kim Kardashian, for example. Though her two marriages both ended in ugliness — her three-year one to Damon Thomas after cheating rumors, her 72-day one to Kris Humphries after who knows what — she’s done well for herself in the bling department.
When Kris and Kim got hitched, celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz gave him a huge discount on a 20-carat sparkler. The ring, valued at $2 million but sold to the couple for $250,000, recently sold at auction in New York. It features a 16.2-karat emerald-cut stone, with 1.8-karat diamonds on each side. The lucky bidder picked it up for almost $750,000 — a real steal, if you don’t mind the story that comes with it.
As for the one she just received on October 21, 2013, from fiancé Kanye West, it also came from Lorraine Schwartz’s shop of low-key (just kidding) diamonds. Kim showed off the 15-karat bauble in a 'gram noir photo moments after Yeezus proposed to her. The ring, which features an emerald- or cushion-cut flawless diamond, has been estimated at between $4 and $5 million. Subtle, don’t you think?
Which ring do you think makes the cut: Kris Humphries’s deco-detailed classic, or the enormous and flashy Kanye-gifted stunner? We’d be happy with a knock-off of either one, for the record…
