The reality star also took the opportunity to debut what looks to be a new wedding ring, which is in stark contrast to her former enormous $3.5 million diamond on an Adidas-branded band. In place of the rock that rivaled Beyoncé’s engagement ring, Kim has opted for a simple, thin, diamond-encrusted band, with her only other additional jewelry being a small gold pinky ring. So if you needed any further definitive proof that Kim is a totally changed woman, look no further than this multimillionaire’s left hand ring finger.
Once upon a time, no one could have ever even imagined putting the words “Kim Kardashian” and “low-key” in the same sentence, let alone actually using it as an adjective to describe the reality star. But since her robbery, the one-woman social media phenomenon whose trademarks were formerly hundreds of carats in diamonds and barely there fashions has turned over a new, extremely dressed-down leaf, ditching her chainmail and latex dresses in favor of baggy t-shirts, sweatpants, and very natural, no contour makeup. So it should go without saying that when wearing a ring in place of her stolen 20-carat diamond from husband Kanye West, Kim 2.0 chose something remarkably understated and dainty.
E! News has confirmed this “second” engagement ring (she was given a 15-carat engagement ring, also by designed Schwartz, when West proposed in 2013) is made from a 20-carat emerald-cut diamond, and Kim hasn’t exactly been shy about flaunting it on social media. A recent selfie, taken three days before the robbery, showed the ring in all its glory, and quickly received 1.2 million likes on Instagram.
Kim’s Paris selfie wasn’t the first time the ring had been seen on Instagram, though. Designer Schwartz shared video footage of the star wearing it, alongside her original engagement ring, three weeks ago. Schwartz confirmed it was D-Flawless and type 2A, which are said to be the purest and most valuable type of diamonds in the world.
Kim has now safely returned to New York, noticeably without the ring, but questions around what happens next to her jewelry remain unanswered. According to a security expert, a rare diamond owned by one of the most high-profile celebrities in the world will be extremely difficult to sell.
A source claimed to The Sun UK, “Kim and Kanye’s marriage is as good as over. It’s looking bleak. didn’t want Kanye at her mum’s Christmas bash this year, as she felt it was the first time she could really let her hair down.”
Leading up to the hotel invasion, Kim had been doing the rounds at Paris Fashion Week Sunday, taking her social media fans along with her on Snapchat and Instagram. She started the day makeup-free at the Balenciaga show, followed by a front row cameo at Givenchy where she cheered on her sister Kendall who took the catwalk for the first time in Paris. Then she joined Kourtney at a dinner hosted by designer Azzedine Alaïa.
The interview resurfaced after five thieves stole the ring, along with millions' worth of other jewels, when they raided Kardashian's Paris apartment and held her at gunpoint. The suspects are still at large.
In the absence of her £3.5m wedding rock, which was stolen during the terrifying heist, the mum-of-two wore a smaller sparkler with a new faux piercing in her lip.
