Having redefined opulence with her addition to the canon of diamond and platinum engagement rings, Kim Kardashian adopted a relatively understated elegance with her wedding ring when she exchanged vows with her new husband, NBA star Kris Humphries, last month in California.
Whilst we at the Platinum Ring Company are generally more subtle in our designs, we can’t help but be bowled over by the lavishness of the rings she now models. In May, she accepted Kris’ proposal and received 20.5 carats - enough one might think for several diamond and platinum engagement rings – in the form of a 16.5 carat emerald and a pair of 2 carat diamonds. According to commentators, this cost between $1 and $2 million dollars and was inscribed with a couple of biblical quotes, one about the “perfect godly woman” and the other about “love”. In contrast, the 15 carat women's platinum wedding rings Kris put on her finger could almost be considered modest!
As jewellery expert, Michael O’Connor, was quoted as saying, "Kim clearly wanted the best-quality wedding ring, and since the diamonds are set in platinum the setting won't fade or tarnish, making it the perfect symbol of enduring love!” In addition to the hand-crafted wedding ring and diamond and platinum engagement rings, she also sported over $10 million dollars worth of additional jewellery (including diamond headpiece and diamond earrings), as well as wearing three different Vera Wang custom-made dresses over the course of her wedding day. It’s fair to say that Kim and Kris did not spare any expense in their pursuit of the perfect day.Of course, most of us have less extravagant budgets but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice quality, style or impact when it comes to choosing your wedding ring.
