You may already be sick with jealously (or just plain sick) over the caliber of Kim Kardashian’s wedding festivities, but as Kim continues to celebrate the affair in NYC, we’re going to celebrate, or least marvel at, her jewels!
Most of us have seen Kim’s engagement ring from Kris Humphries — the show-stopping 20.5 carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring that features a 16.5 emerald cut center stone flanked by two-carat trapezoids. (See Gemvara’s Glacier Ring for a similar, and much less expensive, version).
Now Kim has a massive wedding band to go with it. Her wedding band, also designed by Lorraine Schwartz, is made of platinum and encrusted with 12 carats worth of diamonds. However, the most shocking aspect it of all is that Kim is wearing both of the rings on the same finger, resulting in a grand total of 32.5 carats of diamonds!
Jewelry expert Michael O’Connor commented on Kim’s ring saying, “Kim chose a diamond eternity band set in platinum by Lorraine Schwartz, approximately 12 carats, with an estimated price tag of $60,000 USD. Kim clearly wanted the best quality wedding ring, and since the diamonds are set in platinum the setting won’t fade or tarnish — making it the perfect symbol of enduring love!”
What do you think of Kim wearing her engagement ring and wedding band on the same finger? Although it is customary, do you think it’s overkill for her two massive rocks?
