You guys, I'm kind of embarrassed about how excited I got when I heard that Kim and Kanye got engaged last night. WHY DO I CARE?!? I don't know! But now I want to spend a few minutes obsessing over Kim Kardashian's engagement ring because KIMYE ENGAGED OMGOMGOMG. I'ts a 15-carat diamond engagement rink designed by Lorraine Schwartz.
More about the ring in a sec here, but first first I just wanted to mention: The engagement ring Kim got from Kris Humphries, and which she just auctioned off for $620,000 was also designed by Lorraine Schwartz and featured a 16.21 carat rectangular cut center diamond with color with two 1.80 carat side diamonds. Kanye's ring may feature a slightly smaller stone, but you know what we women are always saying about size not mattering...

I think Kanye's ring trumps Kris' ring on account of the flawless emerald-cut center diamond. I mean... look at that thing. Are you looking? LOOK AT IT!!!
Okay, it's not the clearest photo, but you get the idea. It's a big ol' damn block of ice on her finger. I am so not into diamonds (or jewelry, for that matter) but even I recognize that's a pretty effing spectacular piece of bling.
This is the photo Kim Instagrammed along with "Yes!" but she's taken it down since then... weird, Kim's trying to make a bid for privacy now that's she's engaged? What's up with that? Anyway, more about the ring: Kanye bougth it from Boucheron in Paris, apparently on the sly when he and Kim were there for the fashion shows. So... why the same ring designer? Isn't that weird? I would be, except it also happens to be Kim's favorite jeweler and designer. Kanye knows his woman, and that's a smart place for him to start.
What would your ultimate engagement ring look like?
