Kim Kardashian’s Wedding Day Jewels

Last week we gave you a primer on what was sure to be the wedding of the century summer. That’s right, Kris Humphries is now officially Kris Kardashian, and we promise to stop blogging about this wedding…someday. All jokes aside though, the new Mr. Kim and his bride pulled out all the stops to throw an all-out, glam, Austrian crystallized wedding.

But the sparkle was certainly not limited to the enormous homage to Swarovski and Jesus that hung upon the altar. All eyes, presumably shaded to protect from blinding by bling, were on the bride’s diamonds.

First up, The Ring. It’s been blogged about. It got a People spread. It has convinced this jewelry reporter to give emerald cut diamonds, like peace, a chance. And, as is the norm for any wedding (right?), It sparked envious stares and minor neck strain in Kim’s unengaged guests as It made Its way down the aisle.

That’s $2 million worth of carbon right there – deeply discounted in exchange for the global exposure designer Lorraine Schwartz is now enjoying.

And, natch, you can’t have a ridiculously huge engagement ring without a coordinating wedding band. So Schwartz crafted this stunning platinum eternity band with more emerald cut diamonds, an estimated 15 carats worth.

Understated and demure, no?

To get the proper impression of the bridal set, here they are worn together as K2 departs for their honeymoon.

No one ever accused Kim of aiming for subtlety.

As a tribute to Audrey Hepburn (not Princess Jasmine, contrary to popular belief among anyone born in the late eighties), Schwartz created this 65 carat headpiece studded with diamonds and dripping with – you guessed it- diamonds.

Love it or hate it? The look is luxe, but definitely polarizing.

Kris’s wedding gift to Kim was this knotted diamond bracelet. Get it?

Because they tied the KNOT! And both their knames start with K!

Last but not least, Kim attributed her final “something borrowed” again to Lorraine Schwartz, who is quickly surpassing Jacob the Jeweler for star street cred master. These heart-stopping drop earrings are 28 carats of pure loveliness.

Now these we can get onboard with.

Overall, Kim’s wedding day jewels were worth an estimated $10 million. So now that we know what she wore (Diamonds. Some bigger than a teacup Chihuahua), how she wore them (Both conventionally and on her forehead), and what they cost (Enough to put a dent in the deficit) – there’s only one thing left to learn. What do you, dear readers, think of Kimmie’s jewels? Would you rock a totally unique trend on your big day, like a headpiece? Would you want a 20.5 carat ring if you had the option? Most importantly, am I crazy for thinking the earrings are actually tasteful? Maybe I stared at the rings for too long…

Reality Royalty Ratings – Kardashian-Humphries Wedding-wear

Reality Royalty  Ratings

IN REALITY, IS THIS WEDDING JUST ABOUT RATINGS

It’s hard to know if there’s really anything other than creative “reality” t.v. behind this wedding. We’ve seen love affair after love affair spawned by shows like The Bachelor and its spin offs and predecessors… so is this reality show romance more than the usual love-spam we get thrown at us daily? Will this marriage thrive in the glow of the studio lights or will it wither on camera as the ratings crave a bitter break-up? Whatever it becomes, one thing is for sure… we’ll all be watching.

In Reality, this wedding means 'RATINGS'

That’s what Kim will be wearing, and the bridesmaids will be in green! Really? Green? OK…

The groom will be a towering coat rack for Ermenegildo Zegna.

The Grooomsmen… Is this the Groomsmen rags? And can we just be honest? Does anyone care what the groomsmen wear?

Groomsmen Who? All eyes will be on the bridal party.

Royal Wedding vs. “Reality TV Royalty” Wedding

2011 will forever be remembered as The Year of the Royal Wedding. However, one more day of regal nuptials will take place this year, and this particular wedding boasts a decidedly more Hollywood Bride – it’s a reality royalty wedding this Saturday as the queen of unscripted television, Ms. Kim Kardashian weds New Jersey Nets player Kris Humphries.

But ultimately, which K-named bride wins the contest of THE Royal Wedding of 2011?

The ring

Wedding Rings! Kate’s is a family heirloom imbued with sentimentality, once worn by style icon Princess Diana. It has spurred the creation of thousands of knockoffs, and single-left-handedly created an enormous demand for blue sapphires. Kim’s is mind-blowingly huge weighing in at a whopping 20.5 carats. Kim wins this round, if only because we applaud her ability to keep her left hand from dragging on the ground whilst wearing that thing.

The Groom

Kate’s husband is a prince. Kim’s is a basketball star…in the midst of an NBA lockout. Although Humphries does boast the better hairline, Prince William’s got the better bloodline. Kate, now Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge wins this round.

Sibling rivalry

This round might at first appear to be a TKO for Kim with sheer numbers on her side, but Pippa’s bringing up the rear (of the bridal party) has surpassed even Kim’s world famous asset in internet searches as of late. Plus, Harry is the roguish younger brother that Disney prince protagonists are modeled after. Namely because he’s an actual prince. We say round 3 is all Kate’s.

Media Spectacle

On April 29, 2011, an estimated 2 billion people tuned in to watch Kate Middleton marry Prince William. In the months leading up to the nuptials, Royal Wedding fever swept the globe, creating one of the most anticipated events of the decade. Kimmie, despite her best efforts to create “the other royal wedding”, has not licensed the rights for her ceremony to air live on any of the major news networks, and the only people waking up at 4 am to catch a glimpse of her will be the paparazzi. However, she has developed reality spin-offs (of spin-offs, of spin-offs) to cover the planning and events of her big day. Still, 2 billion, with a ‘B’. Kate wins again.

Star Power

To be fair, The Duke and Duchess did count David Beckham in attendance at their wedding. But there’s no way they can touch the Hollywood turnout sure to be present at Kim and Kris’s. The fashion and jewels alone are sure to be jaw-dropping. We’re imagining luxury watches galore, solid gold wedding presents, and more vintage and heirloom jewels on the bridal party and guests than you can shake a stick at. This round is all Kim’s.

By our powers of addition…it’s a tie! While Kate’s the future queen of England, we’re sure that Kim will still feel like a queen on her big day. What do you think? Which royal wedding has captured your attention more? Would you wear a luxury diamond engagement ring like Kim’s, or prefer vintage bridal jewelry more?

Kim Kardashian: Bride to Be Flaunts $2 Million Engagement Ring Designed by Lorraine Schwartz, Announces Plans To Wed Kris Humphries in Alexander McQueen

Kim Kardashian in Monaco with Fiance, Kris Humphries, Flashing Her New $2 Million Engagement Ring designed by Lorraine Shwartz. Kardashian’s Engagement Ring sparkles with a 16.5-carat emerald cut center stone, flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids, with a total weight of 20.5 carats.

While the media isn’t giving this couple too much credibility, it seems that there are some tell tale signs that we are seeing a true love story as opposed to the claims that the Sports Star was paid to marry Kim Kardashian, or that the new Bride purchased the ring herself. (Which she could have, and more power to her just for that ability!) Kardashian never flaunted Kris Humphries around like arm candy, not was she exceedingly public with their romance or obsessed with his appearance publicly.

That shows a great deal of respect for the relationship and for Kris Humphries, as this gal is no stranger to spouting off with comments about possible suitors that may have been considered… demanding or expectant. With Kris Humphries, I see a sweeter, more genuine person in Kim Kardashian. If this relationship has brought that happiness of a content existence into the young beauties life, the tabloids may be eating some crow for proclaiming this marriage didn’t ‘stand a chance.’

Kim Kardashian Engagement Ring

Kim Kardashian‘s stunning 20.5-carat engagement ring is obviously big. It’s so big, in fact, that husband-to-be Kris Humphries was able to include several inscriptions on the inside of the sparkler. “It’s engraved, with two things from the Bible,” Humphries tells PEOPLE. “There’s one verse [Proverbs 31: 10-31] about the perfect godly woman,” he explains. “The other, [1 John 3:18] is about love. It took me … a few days to pick them out and research the perfect ones.” In the middle of the two passages is a third inscription, “K [hearts] K,”standing, of course, for Kris and Kim.
