Kanye West Designing Engagement Ring For Kim Kardashian Using His Late Mom’s Jewels?
According to reports, Kanye West is planning to propose to Kim Kardashian once her divorce from Kris Humphries is finalized, and his late mother Donda West is going to play a big role in the proposal. Reportedly, the hip-hop star has asked a jeweler to design Kim’s engagement ring using diamonds and rubies from his beloved mom’s jewelry collection. A source told RadarOnline:
“Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring. He then gave them to a private jeweler friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.”
Although most people are probably questioning why Kanye would want to part with his mother’s jewels and give them to someone with such a questionable relationship history, the “All of the Lights” rapper apparently feels the reality TV starlet is worth it. The source said:
“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.”
Not surprisingly, ‘Ye’s friends think it’s a horrible idea, and are totally against it. The source added:
“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.”
Donda, 58, died in 2007 following a series of plastic surgeries, including a breast reduction, liposuction, and a tummy tuck. An autopsy later revealed her death was caused by a coronary artery disease and various complications from plastic surgery.
Kanye seems to be in love, so I’m not mad at him for wanting to propose. But I hope he reconsiders sacrificing his mother’s jewels in what could end up being another 72-day marriage fiasco.
