Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Ring Blinds Us With Its Brilliance

Love It! 14

kim kardashian engagement ringYou 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?

Congratulations to Kim on her third marriage. I just hope this little stunt didn't curse the SF giants into a losing season.

Sorry-I think it's ugly. Rings that big are so gaudy looking but I guess since they can afford it and it's not for me-who cares what my opinion is.lol

Alynn, I actually agree with you. I see articles about celebrities rings all the time and how the rings are so gorgeous but in my personal opinion I think the over the top-look at me-I make so much money rings are gaudy and too much. I have more of a simple taste though.

But this isn't exciting at all. Even for people who like them (all 3 of them) or their families. It'll be over before it starts.

I am not necessarily against being married 3 times, but I think 3 times before the age of 35 is a bit excessive, no?

I'm with them ^ this ring is hideous. I wouldn't want it for free. Simple is so much more beautiful. But what would these two know about simple ANYTHING..

Prett... PrettyGirlMyers

Although I think that there's nothing wrong with a big ole diamond, this ring is impractically big. How do you wear a diamond like that comfortably?

Congrats to them both! I wish them nothing but the best!

Trashy people can be found anywhere and come from a little or a lot of money and these people are trashy. Nuff said.

Had to taint my baseball haven, huh? Blah. Hope they cleanse the stadium before April.

Heard on the radio it was 15 karats. FIFTEEN. How does one get any less practical and any more extravagant??
