Kim Kardashian's Engagement Ring of Biblical Proportions

Kim Kardashian's now-fiance Kris Humphries helped design her 20.5-carat engagement ring with jeweler Lorraine Schwartz. Besides spending big bucks on a ginormous rock, he also spent days deciding what inscriptions to include on the inside of the platinum band. Ultimately, he chose biblical phrases—one about a godly woman and the other about love—taken from the following two passages:

Who can find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies. The heart of her husband doth safely trust in her, so that he shall have no need of spoil.

My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth.

Not to be outquoted by the Bible, Humphries also engraved his very own message: "K [hearts] K."
