Third time will hopefully be a charm for reality TV star Kim Kardashian as she said yes to boyfriend and baby daddy, Kanye West’s proposal – and a 15 carat flawless diamond stunner.
On October 21st (her 33rd birthday), West took Kardashian to a rented-out AT&T Park, home of the San Francisco Giants. Fireworks, a 50-piece orchestra and a jumbo screen flashing “PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!” were all part of the over-the-top proposal. And we haven’t even mentioned the ring yet, although I’m sure you can only imagine!
A proposal that extravagant can only be paired with a ring topping out at 15 carats, and designed by none other than Lorraine Schwartz. (She also designed the ring Kris Humphries gave to Kim in May 2011. Awkward!) According to Lorraine Schwartz herself, West was very involved in the process and wanted to pick out the perfect stone. He found perfection in a flawless 15-carat bauble. No word yet on the price. Rumor has it that West had three different rings created and only hours before the proposal did he make his final decision on this stunner.
This engagement comes just weeks after Kim K.’s old engagement ring from NBA player Kris Humphries sold on the auction block for $749,000. Ahhh sweet reality TV revenge!
Too bad Kanye’s last name didn’t start with an H. They could have saved some cash and use the same monogram from Kim’s 2011 nuptials to Humphries.
Best of luck to the happy couple. We’ll all be waiting for Sunday nights at 10pm for your new reality show.
P.S. In true Kanye-style, a prenup is currently being drawn up (We want prenup! We want prenup!).
