Kim Kardashian's engagement ring 'wins' in family's battle of the bling
It's the battle of the bling among the Kardashian Klan.
Newly engaged Kim Kardashian now leads the pack of diamond-wearing women in her family, now that she's rocking a 20.5-carat engagement ring from New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries.
Though sister Khloé's 12.5-carat engagement bling from Lakers star Lamar Odom was once the envy of her siblings, Kim's new accessory takes the cake.
"Kim wins! Kim's is the largest!" sister Kourtney told People.
Humphries' extravagant gift wasn't just a surprise to Kim – the massive sparkler equally shocked the reality star's family.
"We had no idea [about the engagement]," Kourtney added. "We were both surprised at the dinner when Kim came out with her big rock and she started waving it in the air!"
The ring, which features a 16.5-carat emerald-cut center stone flanked by two 2-carat trapezoids, likely weighs about 4 ounces and possibly more if the ring is set in heavy platinum, Jennifer Gandia, co-owner of NYC's Greenwich Jewelers, told the Daily News.
In terms of weight: imagine strapping a deck and a half of cards on your finger.
"A ring that heavy would become uncomfortable for most women," Gandia said.
But alas, if there's one thing we've learned, it's that Kim Kardashian is not like most women.
