Radar Online reports that West has already started designing the engagement ring…using jewels left behind by his late mother, Donda West. A source told Radar:
“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. 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.
Too soon? Apparently some of West’s friends think so. The source went on to say:
“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.”
Touché. Even if West DID work up the nerve to ask for the ring back, there’s no guarantee that he would get it. Kardashian did infamously keep her engagement ring from estranged husband Kris Humphries after their 72-day marriage crumbled. This was despite NUMEROUS attempts made by Humphries and Co. to retrieve the 20-karat sparkler.
But if the photos from Kim and Kanye’s well documented relationship are any indication…, the two may may finally met their match in each other. Do we hear wedding bells in the future for Kim and Kanye?
