Battle of the Bling: Kim Kardashian’s Big Engagement Baubles

Kim Kardashian's Ring Comparison
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.

    Big engagement rings are disgusting but I wouldn't expect anything less from Kim. Stella McCartney's was 5 Karats and a replica of her mothers granted Linda wasn't a show boat about her jewelry it's not supposed to be about that it's supposed to be a sign of love between a couple not about the cost and karat weight of the ring. mind you Stella's parents were married 29 years when Linda lost her battle with breast cancer on April 17th 1998 K&K won't be married for 1/5 of that time if they even make it to the altar Claire Newman & Her husband Kurt Soderlund for example have been married 14 years her sister Melissa sang in her wedding as she also did later in their older sister Nell's wedding

    What I want to know is why they aren't showing Kanye's ring in better pictures. You can barely see it. I like the new one. I was never a fan of Kris. He was stuck up and annoying and not what a woman like Kim needed.
