When it comes to celebrity engagement rings, it's hard to think of anyone prancing around Hollywood with bridal bling quite as, well, bling-y, than Kim Kardashian. Say what you want about the woman and her famous family, but it's near impossible not to ohh and aww over the supersized diamond Kanye West popped the question with almost three years ago. But just in case you were getting a little sick of that sparkle, fear not, as West just surprised his bride with a brand new engagement ring for us to fawn over. Why? Because, well, why not, right?
In October of 2013, West whisked Kim K away to the San Francisco AT&T Stadium — which he had completely rented out for the occasion. As the giant scoreboard lit up with the words, "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" and a live string orchestra romantically played on the field, West got down on one knee and presented the reality star with a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz stunner, featuring an eye-popping cushion-cut center stone. And thus, Kimye was born. But West might have just outdid himself with the newest diamond sparkler he gifted Kardashian.

What? You don't have two engagements rings?! Kidding, of course... Kardashian's ring is totally insane, but we couldn't help but swoon when we first spotted her new sparkler on the red carpet. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star debuted her diamond at the VMAs. At first glance, one might've thought that the sparkler Kardashian was wearing on her left ring finger was her original Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring. But upon closer look, it can be seen that this diamond is decidedly different — although just as absurdly large!
"Kanye surprised her with a new ring," a source divulged to People magazine. "Kim couldn't believe it. It's even more stunning than her engagement ring if that's possible." Kardashian's brand new bling features a 20-carat emerald-cut center stone, differentiating it from her 2013 engagement ring with its 15-carat cushion-cut diamond, according to jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz. Wowzer...
Seriously, we're totally not jealous or anything. Really.
