Is Kanye West ready to put a ring on it?

The rapper reportedly met with a private jeweler to design an engagement ring for his reality star girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, using diamonds and rubies that once belonged to his late mother, Donda.

“Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring,” a source told Radar Online. “He then gave them to a private jeweler friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.”

According to Radar, the hip-hop superstar plans to propose to Kim once her divorce from Kris Humphries is finalized. Incorporating the memory of his late mother is a highly personal move on Kanye’s part.

“Donda was such an important person in Kanye’s life, he thought the world of her and was devastated when she died. So, he kept all her jewelry as keepsakes,” the insider added. “And now, Kanye has found a woman he respects and loves just as much as his mom, so he wants to share her jewelry collection with Kim.”

The source also claims that Kanye intends to hold the wedding in his hometown of Chicago or in Oklahoma, where his mother is buried.

While we’re taking this report with a major grain of salt, Kim and and Kanye have seemed awfully smitten. Still, we’re not so sure that Kim will be ready to rush into marriage again.
