OMG! Kanye West has asked a jeweler to design an engagement ring for Kim Kardashian, according to Radar Online. Kanye has given the jeweler diamonds and rubies from his late mother’s, Donda West’s, collection to design the ring. Now that is serious.
“Donda was such an important person in Kanye’s life, he thought the world of her and was devastated when she died. So, he kept all her jewelry as keepsakes – a lot of the pieces were items he bought over the years after he made it as a hip-hop star.
“And now, Kanye has found a woman he respects and loves just as much as his mom, so he wants to share her jewelry collection with Kim. He’s hoping to propose to Kim with the ring when she finally gets divorced.”
There is that little issue. Eventually Kim and Kris Humphries have to finalize their split. Friends close to Kanye, though, aren’t too happy about this move.
“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. They’ve also reminded him that Kim is not somebody who works hard for her money. She makes millions doing reality shows and selling her image, and Donda’s jewelry shouldn’t be part of that image.”
Kim refused to return the wedding gifts after her 72-day marriage ended, but I thought engagement rings had to be returned if the couple didn’t marry? I don’t blame Kanye’s friends for being skeptical, but the couple have known each other for a long time. Kanye apparently isn’t listening to them: he has already decided he wants to marry Kim in either Chicago or Oklahoma. I’m guessing Kim will opt for Chicago over Oklahoma- LOL.
