EXCLUSIVE: Kim Kardashian's 'Perfect' 20.5 Carat Diamond Engagement Ring!

Updated

Kim Kardashian had long dreamed of the perfect man — and the perfect ring. “In high school I went to Macy’s and bought this fake ring, my ‘perfect’ ring, and this is almost the exact same,” she says, staring down at the 20-plus-carat gem Humphries designed with jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, a longtime Kardashian friend who has not only decked the reality star in her gorgeous jewels for events like the Emmy Awards but has also created engagement rings for stars like Beyoncé. Wanting something distinctly her own (“Khloé’s is a radiant cut,” she says of her sister’s ring), Kardashian loves the classic design. Humphries had simpler requirements: “I just knew I wanted it to be big!” And he got more than big, as Kim gushed, “It’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. It’s perfect.” The 16.5-carat emerald cut center stone is flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids, for a total weight of 20.5 carats! Humphries even managed to work out the design without his now-fiancé knowing. Kardashian explains, “[Lorraine] always listened to what I would want and the shapes I love. I had said I loved an emerald cut and they were scheming and plotting for a while.” Humphries confided his plans in his parents, but felt confident in his decision. “I knew she’d love it — she better!” –Jennifer Garcia
