Kim Kardashian’s Terrifying Wedding Ring

The thing that made me finally give in and write about Hollywood’s latest wedding monstrosity.

Dear Kim,

Although I am a bridal editor, I was bound and determined not to post anything about your wedding. The royal wedding? Well, sure. I happily weighed in on that. This was not the royal wedding.

But over the weekend, I saw glimpses of your hand in the pictures of your honeymoon scattered about the rags I bring to the beach, and I started to get nervous. Your engagement ring—all 20.5 carats of it—has troubled me since the moment it went on your hand, though, so I should have expected this.

It’s this, Kim, what I stumbled upon on Forbes today. Good God. (And not a good Good God.) That band. That band with that engagement ring. What’s going on here? Well, I could hanker a few guesses, but I won’t go there. And I’m actually not going to talk about money, either, or Hollywood, or reality stars, or greed, or extravagance, or any of the motives therein. I just want to talk about the diamonds. The diamonds are my only concern.

The diamonds are being assaulted here, plain and simple. There is a vulgar diamond crime occurring on your ring finger, and you are the perp. Stabler and Olivia should lock you up. There is a certain point at which even a diamond, arguably one of nature’s most precious gifts falling just after oxygen and water and fire but definitely before the Seven Wonders of the World, ceases to be wonderful and becomes something else, something foul. When it starts to look like something you ganked off the chandelier you used to stare at during family dinners at your great Aunt Pearl’s, something is wrong. And without going all “Fashion can be bought. Style one must possess” on you, it really is disturbing to think of the various funds and talent at your fingertips, and what this could have been. For shame. It makes me sad.

That’s all, Kim. It’s not your first offense, and it certainly won’t be your last. Carry on.



But what do you ladies think? Am I alone with my judgmental furrowed brow, or would you totally rock this set up if you could swing it?

  • Yes! Sooo ugly!!!!!!

    I agree 400%! This ring is awful. For the hideous amount of money that was spent on it, it pains me to imagine how beautiful this could have been. This takes gaudy to another whole level. Kim, Princess Kate you are not. Now go away.

    • Ang

      I LOVE YOU Carrie, for many reasons, one, you referenced my two favorite detectives and two,indeed this “diamond debacle” has occured in our century – royalty not included.

  • Vic

    You know what they say…the bigger the ring, the shorter the:
    A) penis
    B) finger
    C) marriage
    D) all of the above

  • HILARIOUS. You are spot on. Actually the comment about the chandelier had me almost in tears from laughing so hard. Couldn’t be more true!

  • paula


  • Mere

    Yes, you are correct. It’s ugly.

  • Helen

    Spot on. Bigger is clearly, not always better. I feel sorry for her finger. That looks terribly uncomfortable. I would feel guilty if I walked around with that on. Let’s just hope that she crosses her fingers that she didnt just make herself a theft target. (if she physically can).

  • I think its unbelievable that Kim Kardashian who is a cheap hooch mama would go so far to steal other designers ideas. much like other celebrities who just try to make money she isn’t even a designer but rather a cheap imitator. I mean the Belle Noel line is a idiotic knockoff of the Alexis Bittar line. I mean what was this girl smoking? Kim should just keep to being a socialite, at least shes good at that. And if she uses the Kathy lee Gifford approach of denial about how something with her name on it is made i will lose even more respect for her if that’s possible.
