Its the battle of engagement rings! Both Kris Humphries and Kanye West have the same taste in women — and it looks like the same goes for jewelers! They both picked out massive sparklers by celebrity jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz when they popped the question to Kim, but which ring do you like better? VOTE!
It’s about that time for a blinding bling face-off! Kim Kardashian has had the honor of wearing not one but two totally gorgeous engagement rings by designer Lorraine Schwartz — but both rings couldn’t have been any more different. Each ring is very unique in it’s own way, which is why we want to know who YOU think picked out the better bling for Kim’s ring!
Kim Kardashian’s Ring From Kanye West
Rapper Kanye West liked it so much that he put a ring on it, taking a page from friend Jay-Z‘s playbook. The rapper proposed to Kim on her 33rd birthday on Oct. 21 in San Francisco, CA. Kanye, who is quite the romantic, pulled out all the stops to make his wife-to-be feel extra special.
The Black Skinhead rapper presented the beauty with a flawless, 15-carat diamond ring from jeweler Lorraine Schwartz! Lorraine, who is known for her beautiful pieces, created an exquisite ring for the special occasion — and it’s truly a one-of-a-kind creation. The ring featured a flawless, emerald-cut diamond. This ring is no doubt a unique and classy choice for Kim — and given that it’s a flawless, larger-than-life diamond it’s also way pricier than her original ring from Kris!
“This is a classic, stunning ring and a beautiful choice for Kanye to present Kim with. It is hard to see from the photo, but it looks as though the diamond is either an emerald or a cushion cut, and knowing Kanye’s taste, it is top quality. This type of ring could range anywhere from 4 to 5 million dollars”, Brian Watkins, President of Ritani, EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com.
Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Ring From Kris Humphries:
So, what did NBA baller Kris Humphries present the reality star with when he popped the question in 2011? He proposed with a 20.5-carat diamond ring made up of a 16.21-carat rectangular-cut center diamond with I color, VS1 clarity, and two 1.80-carat side diamonds. While the ring was valued at $2,000,000, it sold at auction for $620,000 on Oct. 15 — just a week before Kanye popped the question!
While both rings are undeniably beautiful, in my opinion there is something about Kanye’s ring that really wins me over. A picture is worth a thousand words, so you be the judge! What do you guys think? Do you agree with me or did Kim’s ex pick out the prettier ring? Check it out, VOTE, and sound off below!
