When it comes to glitz, glamor, and gorgeous accessories, no one does it quite like the Kardashians. And while the entire family serves as America’s royalty, Kim continues to reign as queen with her high-end style. In fact, even though her marriage to Kanye West ended in March 2022, that doesn’t stop us from lusting after the original engagement ring he gave her back in 2013. 

To propose, Kanye gave Kim a spectacular 15-carat cushion-cut diamond engagement ring that doubled as a 33rd birthday present. The rock itself is a D flawless, type 2A diamond that designer, Lorraine Schwartz, described as the "perfect cushion-cut diamond." The massive stone is set in a platinum band that features a delicate, micro-pavé of diamonds and reportedly cost $8 million. Kanye also gave Kim an upgraded, second engagement ring in 2016 which was stolen during a robbery in Paris. This piece, also designed by Schwartz, featured an emerald-cut, 20-carat diamond.

Despite Kim’s second ring being larger, her original one is actually estimated to be worth more, and it still serves as the ultimate engagement ring inspiration. And yes, while very few to-be-weds can afford Kim's massive rock, that doesn’t mean you can’t replicate the style or aesthetic while sticking to a (much!) more realistic budget. Whether you love the solitaire cushion-cut diamond, the twinkling pavé band, or simply how over-the-top glamorous it is, there are plenty of sparklers out there that pull inspiration from this celebrity engagement ring.

That’s why we tapped some of our favorite jewelers for their best Kim Kardashian engagement ring lookalikes. Some feature clean cushion solitaries while others boast diamonds on diamonds to give you that endlessly sparkling aesthetic. Whichever route you go, any of these 21 rings are sure to have you feeling like the style icon herself.
