Kim Kardashian's Engagement Ring goes on the Auction Block

Yup, it's for sale!

While I’m not a fan of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” TV show I do know of its existence. I actually watched a few episodes because I found their love of everything sparkly fascinating. Their enthusiasm for jewelry was probably similar to mine except they have a ton of money. In particular they indulge in some pretty big rocks.


The bling girl
Unless you live under a rock, you probably know about the weird divorce triangle that was going on with Kim Kardashian and her ex-husband Kris Humphries. They were married for all of two minutes before they both started having regrets and Kim wanted a divorce. It didn’t seem like very long before things started getting really contentious and Kim was hooking up with Kanye West. Needless to say things got interesting when Kim was still married to Kris while having Kanye’s baby. Are there way too many Ks with these people?


They were happy for one day
Anyways, Kris has the massive engagement ring back in his possession and now he is selling it to recoup some of his cost. Rumor has it the ring cost him close to $2 million and they expect to get about $300,000 to $500,000. Talk about a bad investment, he losing all the way around. He’s divorced and he’ll get a fraction of what he paid for the ring. Actually he’s lucky to get the ring at all.


The new boyfriend and a baby on the way
Typically the engagement ring is given to the bride to be, if she backs out she must give the ring back to the prospective groom. If the groom backs out the bride gets the ring, kind of like a consolation prize. If the wedding happens usually the bride can now lay claim to the ring, unless there is some prenuptial agreement that states differently. Seeing how Kim is still making bank on her celebrity status and poor Kris has lost his NBA contract I can see how Kim would have given the ring back just to finish things up, but it must have been hard to let go of that 16.21 carat sparkler.
I give her credit for giving up the ring because she sure loves her bling
