Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Ring: See It Up Close! (PHOTO)
Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring from fiancé Kanye West is so massive — a whopping 15 carats — we’re sure you can see it from space, but since we don’t have direct access to a rocket ship, we’ve been patiently waiting for a close-up photo of Kim’s new Lorraine Schwartz bling.

Now finally, four days after Kanye’s proposal-ganza, we got our closer look. Behold: Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring! Sunglasses recommended.
It’s...it’s...it’s as amazing as we imagined. The stunner of a diamond picks up the camera flashes, creating a dazzling sparkle effect we’re sure could cause blindness if looked at directly. Set on what appears to be a relatively simple band, the diamond is the center of attention here — just like the lady wearing it!
Specific details on the jewel have been few and far between, but we do know a few facts about this rock. First, it’s classified as D-flawless, only the rarest, most expensive kind of diamond on the planet. Not surprisingly, buying the best has its price tag with Kanye shelling out big for the ring. Estimates on the final price range from $1.25 million all the way up to $8 million.
Kanye also made sure his girl would be wearing a diamond she could feel good about; according to a Lorraine Schwartz rep, the stone is non-conflict certified (aka Leonardo DiCaprio in Blood Diamondwould approve as do we).
Now, where does one find a wedding dress just as impressive? We bet Kanye has a few ideas.
