Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Ring Is the Size of a Small Planet (Pics!)

We're not surprised Kim Kardashian's engagement ring from Kanye West is this enormous, but still. Do you think it could support life on its surface?

Well, Bettys, here’s your first look at Kim Kardashian’s engagement ring. I’m not totally convinced that it’s not actually a small planet which Kanye West plucked out of the sky and strapped to her finger, because good gravy, that thing is ENORMOUS.

Want a closer look? Kim Instagrammed it, of course (because it is actually her job to do so), showcasing not only the ring, but also the scoreboard at AT&T Park on which Kanye displayed the message, “Please marry me.” Or rather, “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!” One cannot use too many E’s in expressing one’s excitement:

According to E! Online, Kanye went to favorite celeb jeweler Lorraine Schwartz for the asteroid ring. Said a rep for Lorraine, “Kanye was involved in every single way. He had a vision from the beginning. He looked at a lot of stones and he wanted only the best.” Apparently Kanye “wanted the diamond to look like it was floating on air.”

What we’re looking at here is a 15-carat, cushion cut diamond that Lorraine’s rep calls “flawless.” It’s the best type of diamond there is (D-stone, type 2A for the curious—the terms mean nothing to me, but I’ll take Lorraine’s word for it), and celebrity jewelry expert Michael O’Connor estimates that it and the ring in which it is set are worth somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 million.

We’re going to tastefully ignore the fact that Lorraine Schwartz also designed the ring Kris Humphries gave to Kim. Y’know, the one that sold for $749,000 at a Christie’s auction last week.

Anyhoo, love it? Hate it? Couldn’t care less about it?

Just because I feel it’s worth sharing, I’ll leave you with this additional shot from Kanye’s proposal. The image of a complete string orchestra on a ball field is just so delightfully surreal:

  1. Diamond cocktail rings are simply stunning pieces of jewelry. They make for bold fashion statements and are therefore called as ‘Statement Rings.’ Diamond cocktail rings have been members of gala receptions since the 1930’s. These rings adorn fingers of beautiful ladies and would make them the centre of attraction of all events.

    A cocktail ring is a big dramatic ring, usually worn at cocktail parties. But today these rings are worn as beautiful accessories to even casual outfits.

    Nowadays cocktail rings have assumed a new meaning of splendor and elegance. They come in many different designs and have become costume jewelry suitable for various occasions like balls, cocktail parties, prom parties, birthday celebrations, engagements and weddings. Go centre stage with loud and flashy cocktail diamond rings at any occasion.
