Kardashian’s reputation was ruined when she called off her marriage to Humphries just 72 days after a blowout $18 million wedding, two television specials and a season of Humphries-bashing on “Kourtney & Kim Take New York.”
But the 31-year-old reality personality rebounded quickly with rapper West, whose love of publicity is nearly equal to hers. Although they have only been dating for a few months, West is reportedly hard at work designing an engagement ring, according to gossip site radaronline.
He is using pieces of jewelry from his late mother Donda to incorporate in the ring. Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring,” a source told the Web site. “He then gave them to a private jeweler friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.”
West is known for his love of bling, so you can be sure the ring will be over-the-top. “Kanye wants to marry Kim in either Chicago, where he was raised, or Oklahoma, where Donda is buried,” the source said.
While his intentions are good, Kim will likely settle for nothing less than an L.A. or a New York City wedding. And while, West says he’s in love, his friends don’t trust Kim.
“His friends think it’s a terrible idea and are advising him not to give Kim the ring. Because it’s a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up.”
Kim kept her wedding and engagement ring from Humphries and most of the wedding presents. This would be her third marriage.
