Kanye West Creating Custom Ring for Kim Kardashian
Rumor has it that Kanye West has enlisted the help of a private jeweler in an effort to make a one-of-a-kind engagement ring for his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian. Apparently, it’s so important that Kanye is reportedly including some jewelry from his late mother’s personal collection.
A source said: "Kanye picked out some of Donda's most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring. 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.”
If that’s true, I hope he is absolutely sure about this relationship because it would be awful to use some of his mom’s jewelry on a relationship that isn’t going to last.
Of course, Kim needs to get divorced first. Her marriage to NBA hoops player, Kris Humphries, lasted just 72 days and made her a laughing stock. Because of this, Kanye’s friends are concerned, justifiably, about him giving the reality star some of his beloved mother’s belongings.
"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," a source shared. "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."
The locale that Kanye, 35, allegedly has in mind for his wedding to Kim, 31, is also sentimental – he grew up in Oklahoma and his mother is buried there - "Oklahoma is his personal choice because his mother's grave is there -- and he wants her at his wedding in spirit. But he hasn't ruled out Chicago, which he credits for giving him inspiration for building his glittering career."
Whatever choices he makes, I hope he thinks them through first.
