One thing’s for sure, when it comes to Kim Kardashian if you’re gonna put a ring on it, you better bring the bling.

For Kim’s last jaunt down the aisle with Kris Humphries in 2011 it all started out as a fairytale TV wedding complete with a Lorraine Schwartz 20.5-carat emerald cut engagement bauble worth $2 million. The NBA star lit some candles and speckled the floor with rose petals to ask those four little words… and we all know how that ended.

For his turn at getting down on one knee, Kanye West wouldn’t be the “no. 1 rock star on the planet” if he didn’t out-do the ex.

So he rented out the entire Giants stadium in San Francisco where he popped the question in front of friends and family. And if that didn’t take Kim’s breath away, the 15-carat flawless cushion cut diamond he presented to her most certainly did the trick.

And, of course, according to the jeweler and close Kimye friend Ms. Schwartz, it’s only the best quality diamond you can buy, which jewelry expert Michael O’Connor estimates at around a whopping $3 million.

In this battle of the bling, you decide which bauble you like better.
