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.
From the rock that kicked off Kim’s infamous 72-day marriage to the sparkler that now adorns Kourtney's ring finger, there's been quite an impressive collection of stunning stones amassed.
Ahead, all the details on every Kardashian engagement ring and the proposals where they took center stage.
Kris and Caitlyn Jenner
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.
Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom
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.
Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries
In 2011, after six months of dating, NBA player Kris Humphries opted for an intimate, at-home affair to propose to Kim, spelling out "Will You Marry Me?" in rose petals in the bedroom of her Beverly Hills home. The lowkey proposal was followed by an over-the-top celebration that set the newlyweds off on a 72-day relationship before they called it quits.
The SKIMS creator’s Lorraine Schwartz ring from Kris featured a 16-carat center rock with two 1.8-carat diamonds flanking the sides. At the time, the ring was estimated to be worth around $2 million, but it was later reported that the athlete auctioned it off at Christie’s in New York for nearly $750,000 after their divorce. The marriage was Humphries’ first and Kardashian’s second, following a brief union with ex Damon Thomas, long before Keeping Up With The Kardashians ever aired.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye (Ye) West
After years of being friends, Kim made a fairly quick rebound from her marriage to Humphries and started dating Grammy-winning artist Kanye West in 2012, just months after her divorce was finalized. In 2013, three months after welcoming their daughter North, Kanye popped the question in a larger-than-life fashion by renting out the AT&T Park stadium in San Francisco and flashing "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" on the jumbotron. He presented Kim with a 15-carat cushion-cut diamond ring with micro-pavé diamonds covering the platinum band. Allegedly one of the most expensive celebrity engagement rings, it’s been reported that this dazzler was worth between $3 or $4 million and was custom designed by none other than Lorraine Schwartz.
Kim also received a whopping 20-carat ring from the Yeezy designer as a second engagement ring in 2016, two years after their wedding. Unfortunately, this was one of the pieces that were stolen during the Paris robbery in 2016. After the robbery, Kim stopped wearing a wedding ring regularly but would show off her first ring, the 15-carat stunner, on occasion.
Khloé Kardashian and Tristan Thompson
Khloé and Tristan sparked engagement rumors after she was seen sporting an enormous rock on her ring finger in Instagram posts promoting her fashion line Good American. Experts at UK jewelry retailer Steven Stone surmised that the ring may weigh in around 13 carats, with a large pear-shaped stone in the center, and two smaller one-carat diamonds on either side.
Much like Khloé and Tristan’s relationship over the years, the ring has endured an on-again/off-again relationship with this Kardashian sister, and any speculation of an engagement to True’s father, are only rumors for now.
Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker
The news that Barker and Kourtney were dating broke in December 2020, and the PDA-loving couple made their romance Instagram official in February 2021. The couple has been flaunting their love affair ever since, making it only a matter of time before an engagement came to fruition.
"Kravis" was engaged on Oct. 17 in Montecito, California, following Travis’s romantic beachfront proposal at the Rosewood Miramar resort surrounded by a heart-shaped setting of red roses. The ring, a custom piece by (you guessed it!) Lorraine Schwartz, features an eight-carat oval-shaped stone set on a pavé band and worth an estimated $1 million.
