With the recent announcement of Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker’s engagement, the world’s eyes are back on the rocks that glimmer on the hands of the Kardashian clan. The family of reality stars, entrepreneurs, and style icons is not one to stay under the radar, so it comes as no surprise that when their SO’s decide to pop the question, there is no luxury spared on the ring.
It all started with Kris, so our Kardashian engagement journey begins here. The family matriarch and world-famous “momager” was previously married to lawyer Robert Kardashian with whom she had four children. There aren’t many details around their wedding, but one month after they divorced, Kris married former Olympian, Caitlyn Jenner, subsequently staying together for 23 years. The Daily Mail reported that following their split in 2014, she kept her 20.5-carat diamond engagement ring that was custom-designed by Lorraine Schwartz, perhaps setting off the family’s long-standing relationship with the famed jeweler.
In a whirlwind romance, this NBA player and the Good American founder were married within a month of meeting each other in September 2009. The pair made an impromptu decision to get married so there was no ring on deck, but Odom later asked Khloé to be his wife in the presence of her family and friends—this time with a ring.
Odom’s choice for Khloé, which featured a 12.5-carat radiant-cut diamond with a halo setting, was reported to have cost $850,000. Unfortunately, the couple split four years later.
