Kim Kardashian is now sporting another giant diamond engagement ring on her hand following Kanye West’s over the top proposal at San Francisco’s AT&T Park Monday night. But how does it measure up to the one she was wearing just a few years ago during her engagement and 72 days of wedded bliss to NBA player Kris Humphries?
While both rings are over the top bling, Kanye’s is actually a little bit smaller than the 20 carat ring that Kris proposed to Kim with in 2011.
Both rings were designed by jeweler-to-the-stars Lorraine Schwartz. Kanye’s features a 15 carat emerald-cut diamond, similar in shape to the 16.21 carat stone with 1.80 carat side diamonds that Kris gave Kim.
That ring is now in private hands after being sold at auction at Christie’s auction house last week. Humphries won the bauble back during the former couple’s divorce proceedings.
That ring was estimated to be worth $2 million but sold for almost $750,000.
Either way, Kim’s ring finger now has a big blingy diamond back on it now.
