Celebrity Jewelry News: Kimye Gets Engaged as Humphries Auctions Kardashian Ring

It’s official! Reality queen Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are officially engaged following the rapper’s surprise proposal on October 21st, 2013. The controversial couple celebrated their engagement after West surprised his lady by renting the AT & T Center in San Francisco for the night, getting a 50-piece orchestra to pay Kardashian’s favorite songs, and a bright Jumbotron message : “Please Marry Me!” A surprised Kardashian said yes as West got on his knees in front of family and friends, who were watching secretly from the sidelines.

But the one detail of the proposal that may be truly remarkable is the 15-carat, D-flawless, conflict-free cushion cut diamond stunner Kardashian is now sporting. Designed by celebrity jeweler Lorraine Schwartz in collaboration with Kanye West, who was apparently 100-percent involved in the creative process, the gorgeous ring is a simple but very unique piece that is as big as the two superstars.

Kimye Ring: The Details

  • According to reports, West wanted to give the mother of his baby girl a ring that was unique and rare, but that was also “not financing violence by rebel movements and their allies seeking to undermine legitimate governments.” To that end, the breathtaking diamond is D-flawless – the purest and most perfect color, clarity and cut – as well as conflict-free and Kimberly verified.
  • Following their engagement, West revealed in an interview with a local radio show in California that he worked with three different jewelers before settling on the beautiful ring, and made changes to the ring just hours before presenting it to his bride-to-be.
  • The ring, which achieves West’s desired appearance like it is floating in air, is reportedly worth $3 million, although many experts, including Adelaide Polk-Baumanare of Forevermark Diamond, estimating its cost as being closer to a whopping $7-8 million. Polk-Baumanare added, according to the New York Daily News, that a ring of this quality is “exceptionally rare.”

Kim’s Old Ring Sold at Auction

While Kim Kardashian and Kanye West were celebrating their engagement, Kardashian ex Kris Humphries, who was famously married to the reality starlet for a mere 72 days, finally auctioned the $2-million engagement ring he proposed to her with at Christie’s and reportedly sold it for $749,000. The emerald-cut, 20.5-carat ring was also designed by Lorraine Schwartz, and was awarded back to Humphries as part of the couple’s divorce settlement.
