Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring is the perfect fit for the uber-reality starlet’s personal style. It’s bold. It’s beautiful. And (good gracious) is it BIG!

New Jersey Nets forward Kris Humphries popped the question after dating Kim for only 6 months with a whopping 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz stunner, People reports!  (Schwartz is a longtime friend of the Kardashian clan and is known for her ‘bigger means better’ bling on all the important red carpet events.)

 

“It’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen,” Kardashian told People. “It’s perfect.”

And TMZ is reporting the stone is valued at over $2 million smackers! (someone get me a chair….)

The 16.5-carat emerald-cut center stone is flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids, for a total weight of 20.5 carats! Humphries even managed to work with Schwartz on the design behind Kim’s back.

 

“[Lorraine] always listened to what I would want and the shapes I love. I had said I loved an emerald cut and they were scheming and plotting for a while,” she explained.

No wedding date is set yet, and while Humphries isn’t keen on a big celebration he joked with Kim’s momager, Kris Jenner, that he’d be “fine if there were mini-horses there.”

 

Careful what you wish for,  sport…

Remember sister Khloe Kardashian’s basketball-bought bling? She too dated her basketball beau, Lamar Odom, for a mere six months before gettin’ hitched. Way to take your time, ladies.

Kate Hudson’s Engagement Ring Details!

Bling, baby bumps and now – Mrs. Bellamy? Kate Hudson’s engagement ring made its dazzling debut with Matt Lauer on the Today Show this morning – and boy is it a doozy. 

UsMagazine.com reports the ring is likely a 9-carat rock – which isn’t in the Mariah Carey (17-carats) or Beyonce (18-carats) stratosphere, but it’s certainly of a caratage befitting the A-list.

The center stone appears to be an emerald-cut gem (actually, it looks a lot like Beyonce’s engagement ring) with baguettes on either side set in a white metal – which for this crowd means platinum. One of my favorite Tweeps, Jean from Francesca Fine Jewelry tells me it’s worth an estimated $200,000!

Will be on the lookout for more specs, but it’s surprising to see such a ‘traditional’ look on Hudson, who is known as the queen of alternative fashion and boho chic.

Kate later told Lauer that wedding plans will be taking a back seat to all things baby, as she’s expecting her second child with hubby-to-be, Matt Bellamy, in the next few months. 

Babies, bling and betrothal! Now that’s a triumvirate worth babbling about!
