Because one is never enough, Kanye West gave Kim Kardashian a second engagement ring, which she wore out and about in Miami yesterday. Clad in a Yeezy Season 4
bra crop top and a matching long pencil skirt, Mrs. West showed off her arm strength lugging around the diamonds, which may or may not weigh approximately five pounds each. According to the Daily Mail, the original Lorraine Schwartz cushion-cut rock rang in at 15 carats, and the updated emerald-cut version is 20 carats, says Schwartz herself.
Perhaps West inspired Kylie Jenner‘s Snapchat remark a couple of weeks ago: “If this is my promise ring I wanna know what my engagement ring gonna look like,” she said of the fairly massive (but not as large as Kardashian’s) bling on her left ring finger. Since Kardashian never got a promise ring (that we know of), maybe West felt inspired to up the ante with an extra engagement ring. Or maybe he just wanted to show off what a big spender he is.
Hey, a person doesn’t have to have an excuse to buy their lovely wife a traffic-stopping diamond ring. Perhaps he was just in the mood for a smile. If it had been us, we would’ve gone with something a little more low-key, but—if you’re Kanye West, go big or go home. And big he went.
According to People, Kardashian received the present back in August, but she hasn’t been seen wearing both rings at once—until now.
