Kanye West Designed Three Separate Engagement Rings for Kim, Decided on Pick at Last Minute

Rapper, producer, and fashion designer Kanye West revealed that he designed three different engagement rings for fiancée Kim Kardashian. In an Oct. 28 appearance on Los Angeles’ Power 106 Big Boy morning radio show, the artist admitted that his final selection was chosen last-minute before presenting it to Kardashian.

“Three rings were made and only one hit the ringer and that was Lorraine’s,” West told DJs, referring to celebrity jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz. “I actually changed the ring the night before. The ring was less than four hours old when I gave it to her.” 

Referring to Kardashian as his “wife,” the rapper—who said his now-fiancée “knew” he would pop the question eventually—attributed the multiple designs to “anxiousness”: “I just had to get that ring right. I worked with four different jewelers.”

The 36-year-old West plans to wed the reality television star next year.
