The rapper and reality tv star announced Kim’s pregnancy after Kanye let the cat out of the bag at his Atlantic City concert. Kim Kardashian is about 12 weeks along, making her baby due just around when Kate Middleton is due to give birth to the next heir to the British throne. It’s a pretty strange coincidence, considering Kim’s own “Royal Wedding” after Kate & Will’s. It’s still uncertain if the couple will announce the baby’s sex or if they’ll give it a K initial, but one thing’s for sure – Kim will get one hell of a push present. Below, a few of our suggestions for the expectant mother.
This 13 carat diamond and platinum tennis bracelet is an opulent variation of the classic diamond bracelet. And the beautiful emerald cut diamonds will match the engagement ring Kim is so keen to hold onto (even if she’s way ready to let go of ex Kris Humphries).
Nothing about Kim is subtle. Same goes for Kanye. We’re sure that their child will inherit a penchant for making a statement, and this gorgeous Y. Adkin 22kt yellow gold and diamond cuff does the same.
This jaw dropping pair of platinum, Diamond and Onyx Vintage Drop Dangle Earrings has a tendency to turn heads – very fitting.
Given Kim’s obsession with Kate Middleton aka Duchess of Cambridge, this ring might be right up her alley!
This Rolex Datejust 16014 Diamond Pave Dial is for Kanye. You know he’ll want some credit for contributing to the paparazzi’s new golden child.
For weeks – if not months – press and pundits have been speculating on the likelihood of an engagement in Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s future. After Kanye treated Kim to an Italian getaway to celebrate her 32nd birthday many thought it was all but settled that he would propose.
Just this last week, on October 24, paparazzi spotted Kim at a Christian Louboutin boutique in Miami, Florida. The curvy celeb was sporting hip-hugging jeans, a black crocodile Hermes Birkin Bag, and a suspiciously large oval-shaped diamond ring on the pinky finger of her right hand.
Speculation that Kardashian was indeed engaged to hip-hop superstar Kanye West and has opted to wear the ring on her pinkie only out of deference to the fact that she’s still technically married to Kris Humphries has been more-or-less squashed by sources close to the starlet including Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner. Regarding whether or not the engagement rumor was true, Jenner said: “If it was, I would know about it.”
The Italy trip took the pair of lovers from Rome to Venice to Florence but the only special surprise was a custom birthday cake for Kim, who blogged “What a romantic weekend! One I’ll never forget.”
Still, one has to wonder if perhaps there will soon be another diamond ring in Kim’s future, perhaps in the next season of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.

Sadly, the day has come. Well, it came, yesterday when Kim announced her relationship was done-zo then filed for divorce within an hour. The woman is efficient, there’s no denying that. The tabloids have been rife with speculation about the validity/sanctity/wisdom of the kouple’s whirlwind romance and ensuing marriage, but Kim deftly put the k’bosh on all break up rumors.

Yesterday proved that those whisperings were more than rumors. Kim, in a statement to E! News (obviously), said:
“After careful consideration, I have decided to end my marriage,” she told E! News in a statement. “I hope everyone understands this was not an easy decision. I had hoped this marriage was forever, but sometimes things don’t work out as planned. We remain friends and wish each other the best.”
Her new “friend”, formerly “spouse”, did not seem to be on the same page; he too released a statement:
“I love my wife and am devastated to learn she filed for divorce,” he said. “I’m committed to this marriage and everything this covenant represents. I’m willing to do whatever it takes to make it work.”
While I can appreciate Kris’s use of the word covenant (with irony, of course), Kim had already flown the coop to Australia for – what else- business. Ever the working woman, Kim is keeping all of her prior commitments in the wake of the divorce filing – and Kris won’t benefit from that work ethic.
According to E!:
“As for the division of their assets, the couple did indeed have a prenuptial agreement, and the 31-year-old reality star requested that the terms of that agreement be upheld. Additionally, she listed “miscellaneous jewelry and other personal effects” as well as “earrings and accumulations” amassed by Kim before, during and after her marriage be confirmed as separate property.”

Kim also requested that each party pay for their court fees separately – it begs the question, much like Khloe (my personal favorite/the only one apparently with a BS-meter) did prior to their Aug. 20th wedding): Are Humphries’ intentions pure in trying to $alvage this marriage? And, all that aside, is there any chance that it can be saved? We’ll see. Literally, the only certain thing is that we will see every minute detail of the divorce lead-up, proceedings, and aftermath splashed across headlines, glossies, and TV for the next few months. Happy November!
Last week we gave you a primer on what was sure to be the wedding of the century summer. That’s right, Kris Humphries is now officially Kris Kardashian, and we promise to stop blogging about this wedding…someday. All jokes aside though, the new Mr. Kim and his bride pulled out all the stops to throw an all-out, glam, Austrian crystallized wedding.

But the sparkle was certainly not limited to the enormous homage to Swarovski and Jesus that hung upon the altar. All eyes, presumably shaded to protect from blinding by bling, were on the bride’s diamonds.
First up, The Ring. It’s been blogged about. It got a People spread. It has convinced this jewelry reporter to give emerald cut diamonds, like peace, a chance. And, as is the norm for any wedding (right?), It sparked envious stares and minor neck strain in Kim’s unengaged guests as It made Its way down the aisle.
That’s $2 million worth of carbon right there – deeply discounted in exchange for the global exposure designer Lorraine Schwartz is now enjoying.
And, natch, you can’t have a ridiculously huge engagement ring without a coordinating wedding band. So Schwartz crafted this stunning platinum eternity band with more emerald cut diamonds, an estimated 15 carats worth.
Understated and demure, no?
To get the proper impression of the bridal set, here they are worn together as K2 departs for their honeymoon.
No one ever accused Kim of aiming for subtlety.
As a tribute to Audrey Hepburn (not Princess Jasmine, contrary to popular belief among anyone born in the late eighties), Schwartz created this 65 carat headpiece studded with diamonds and dripping with – you guessed it- diamonds.
Love it or hate it? The look is luxe, but definitely polarizing.
Kris’s wedding gift to Kim was this knotted diamond bracelet. Get it?
Because they tied the KNOT! And both their knames start with K!
Last but not least, Kim attributed her final “something borrowed” again to Lorraine Schwartz, who is quickly surpassing Jacob the Jeweler for star street cred master. These heart-stopping drop earrings are 28 carats of pure loveliness.
Now these we can get onboard with.
Overall, Kim’s wedding day jewels were worth an estimated $10 million. So now that we know what she wore (Diamonds. Some bigger than a teacup Chihuahua), how she wore them (Both conventionally and on her forehead), and what they cost (Enough to put a dent in the deficit) – there’s only one thing left to learn. What do you, dear readers, think of Kimmie’s jewels? Would you rock a totally unique trend on your big day, like a headpiece? Would you want a 20.5 carat ring if you had the option? Most importantly, am I crazy for thinking the earrings are actually tasteful? Maybe I stared at the rings for too long…

Sad news today for lovers of alliterated married couples – Kim K will file for divorce later today, as reported by Perez Hilton and confirmed by Ryan Seacrest Himself. 72 days of wedded “bliss” helped Kimmy realize that her new husband might not have been the best match. Somewhere in Calabasas, Khloe is doing a happy dance of celebration (can you blame her?) before preparing to comfort her sister. And elsewhere, recently scammed Kris is kissing his worry-free lifestyle goodbye. How ’bout that NBA lockout Humph? Kim, who by far got the short end of the stick in this marriage, is well on her way to walking in idol Elizabeth Taylor‘s multiply betrothed footsteps.
It’s hard to know if there’s really anything other than creative “reality” t.v. behind this wedding. We’ve seen love affair after love affair spawned by shows like The Bachelor and its spin offs and predecessors… so is this reality show romance more than the usual love-spam we get thrown at us daily? Will this marriage thrive in the glow of the studio lights or will it wither on camera as the ratings crave a bitter break-up? Whatever it becomes, one thing is for sure… we’ll all be watching.
