Her Engagement to Kayne West and THE Ring
Everyone loves a fairytale, and although this one didn’t have a happy ending and they’ve since broken up, the love story between Kim Kardashian and Kanye West certainly has aspects of the love story fantasy. By now, it is a well-known fact that Kanye held a secret flame for several years before finally getting his yes.
They first met in 2003. At that point, they were both dating other people, but they struck up a close friendship that persisted. West appeared on Kim’s hit show in 2010 and set tongues wagging with their undeniable chemistry, but they did not announce their relationship until 2012. One year later, they announced they were expecting a child, and one year after that Kanye took the next step. He proposed in front of her entire family in AT&T Stadium.

Kim’s Ring and Cushion Cut Engagement Rings
The ring certainly made a statement. At a whopping 15 carats, its value is estimated at over $8 million! The ring is set with a D colour and flawless centre stone. Truly, a perfect cushion-cut specimen. The large diamond is set in a prong set band, this is a type of setting where the shank is lined with a series of accent stones. The setting itself makes it look as though the large gem is floating.
If you have been searching for inspiration, then as far as engagement rings go, Kim’s ring is an excellent choice. If $4.5 million is beyond your budget, there are better choices in terms of value and quality for the centre stones, such as SUPERNOVA Moissanite or a lab grown diamond. Moissanite is a near-colourless gemstone composed of silicon carbide. The brilliance surpasses that of a diamond but it is much more affordable. With that in mind, we have selected several rings in our latest range of large stone collection.
