Kanye West already sent Kim Kardashian a room full of designer clothes, could an engagement ring be next?
It’s been at least a month since some marriage rumors about Kim and Kanye have circulated, but (yet again) there’s word that Kanye is hoping to make Kim his wife.
RadarOnline.com reports that Kanye has hired a jeweler to create a custom engagement ring for Kim from pieces of his late mother’s jewelry.
According to one source, Kanye gathered up some of his mother Dr. Donda West’s best baubles, including diamond earrings and a ruby ring. "He then gave them to a private jeweler friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind," the tipster told Radar Online.
Certainly Kanye is wealthy enough to buy Kim a new ring, but if the gossip is to be believed, then he wants to give her something with deeper meaning. The source claims that Kanye feels designing a piece from his mother’s collection would be a great way to pay tribute to her as he moves forward into his future.
“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," the insider stated, adding that many of the pieces were ones that Kanye bought for Donda when he became famous. “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."
And although Kim is still technically married to Kris Humphries, but Kanye’s “hoping to propose to Kim with the ring when she finally gets divorced."
Kim and Kanye have practically been inseparable since they started dating in March, shortly after he confessed his love for her in "Way Too Cold" (originally titled "Theraflu"). They’re so in synch that they even dress in similar color schemes.
There have also been reports that he might be getting into the Kardashian family business by starring in a spin-off with Kim! She’s also fitting in well with his circle as Kim has gotten to buddies with Beyoncé and Jay-Z, as the couples all sat front-row for the BET Awards.
As smitten as Kanye seems to be with Kim, some people in his circle aren’t sure that crafting an engagement ring for her from his mother’s jewelry is a great idea.
“His friends think it’s a terrible idea and are advising him not to give Kim the ring,” the source said. “Because it’s a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up."
When it comes to the wedding day, Kanye would prefer to get married in either his hometown of Chicago or in Oklahoma, where his mother was laid to rest.
“Kanye’s an emotional character and has earmarked Chicago or Oklahoma as the two places he’d love to wed Kim,” the source explained. 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.”
