We’ve been oohing over Kim Kardashian’s wedding ring since we got our first glimpse of it as the couple jetted out to Italy from LAX earlier this week but until now, we didn’t know exactly what it was we were admiring!
Kim’s engagement ring was one of the most impressive pieces of jewellery we’ve ever seen and at 20.5 carats, one would hope so!
But Kris Humphries didn’t let his bride down when it came to a wedding band, calling on Lorraine Schwartz (who designed Kim’s engagement ring and her wedding head piece) to come up with the perfect ring for his princess.
The ring is a platinum band encrusted with 12 carats worth of diamonds, making a grand total of 32.5 carats on her ring finger!
Of the ring which he estimates to be worth around $60,000, jewellery expert Michael O’Connor told Us Weekly: “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!”
And jewellery wasn’t the only place that Kim splashed out. She also went to town when it came to her wedding gown, choosing three for her special day. Find out all about those here.
