Kanye West reportedly spent a $8 million on the stunning engagement ring he gave Kim Kardashian on her 33rd birthday. The rapper presented the reality TV star with a flawless 15-carat diamond ring created by celebrity jeweller Lorraine Schwartz.
“The ring is flawless. Not just internally flawless, it’s flawless. It’s a D-stone, the best diamond there is, type 2A,” revealed the rep, adding “It’s a perfect cushion cut diamond.”
