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.
