Kim Kardashian's Engagement Rings
Round Three for Kim Kardashian! They say third time's the charm, here is hoping. Kim's man muscled up the courage and put a ring on it, actually he put a 15 carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring on it, but who's counting? News of the elaborate proposal has been surfacing the internet every other minute, and frankly hats off to the rapper. Way to go Kanye West for going with a more original and very cute approach, with the words, "PLEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" written on a screen in the middle of the field. Kanye gets more points due to the fact that a 50-piece orchestra played Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful" in the background.
The question in mind, is Kanye's ring better than her ex-husband Kris Humphries'? Let me break it down, Kris' proposal included a 16.21 carat-center diamond, and two 1.8 carat side diamonds from Lorrain Schwartz. The ring was worth two million dollars, however it sold for 749,000 dollars at a recent auction, talk about not making a profit. We all witnessed Kris' proposal, intimate and private just her and Humphries, however Kanye's proposal included her entire family to celebrate this memorable moment.
Though Kris Humphries choice of rings is greater in carats, Kanye West's ring is greater in value, as quite a few sources state that Kim's new ring ranges from four to five million dollars.
Diamonds are a girls best friend, and both rings are huge diamonds, however Kanye's ring wins my vote. There is something about it, more simpler and elegant.
