Kim Kardashian News: Back in August 2011, TV “star” Kim Kardashian got married to Kris Humphries (famous basketball player in America) in a lavish televised marriage – as you do!! Surprisingly, this marriage made in Hollywood – I mean, made in heaven, didn’t last (to be more precise, it lasted 72 days).
The question was asked at the time – what will happen the engagement ring which is a monster. It is reported to be a 16.21 carat centre diamond, flanked on either side by trapeze cut diamonds which are each 1.80 carats, set in platinum. For those who are into their diamonds (like us) the diamond has a GIA cert which states it is VS1 clarity and an I colour.
Anyway, the interesting this is that according to US Weekly, Kris is selling the ring for auction and is expecting to get $300k – $500k. For those with a bit of spare cash, this auction takes place on October 15th with a portion of the proceeds going to a charity. It is being sold by Auction House Christie’s in New York, according to RumorFix.com.
However, it should be noted that auction house bosses have refused to confirm the identity of the seller but the details of the ring are very similar to Kim’s ring so I’ll let you join the dots on this one!!
The couples divorce was finalized over the summer, weeks before the birth of her daughter, with her current boyfriend, rapper Kanye West.
We do love this ring, a bit big and vulgar, lacks class and style but the size is impressive – it’ll interesting to see what this sells for!!
