Eerie? Kim Kardashian’s Engagement Ring Looks A Lot Like the One Kanye Gave Ex-Fiancee Alexis
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West made headline news when they confirmed their engagement, but Kim’s big 15 carat rock is getting just as much attention as the proposal itself, which is to be expected for any Hollywood couple. As we reported recently, the ring was designed by the same woman who designed Kim’s last engagement ring which she received from former husband Kris Humphries. It’s been reported that Kanye had been working on the ring for weeks with Lorraine Schwartz, and after sending emails back and forth he finally was able to get the ring to look exactly how he wanted it to. Interestingly enough, a new article from Glamour Magazine points out that Kim’s new ring looks a lot like the ring Kanye gave his ex-fiancee Alexis Phifer.
The ring Kanye gave Alexis appears to be slightly smaller and the prongs on both rings are not the same, but overall the rings strongly favor. Check out the photo (Photo Credit: Glamour/Getty/Splash). Kim’s ring is on the left and Alexis’ ring is on the right:
But what do you think? Do the rings look too much alike for comfort? And if so, should Kim be insulted or is it not really a big deal?
In related news, Kim and Kanye have filed a lawsuit against co-founder of YouTube Chad Hurley. Hurley is allegedly the person who put footage of Kimye’s proposal out on social media. The couple is suing because Kim actually planned to use the footage on her show “Keeping Up the Kardashians” and she’s furious people have already seen it thanks to Hurley. He signed a confidentiality agreement demanding he would not shoot video of the event, but he decided against it to reportedly promote his new business venture MixBit.
