Are Kanye West and His Kardashian Heading Down the Aisle?

Kanye is reportedly designing an engagement ring for his love Kim.


Although they have only been dating for a few months reports surfaced today that Kanye West is preparing to pop the question to short-term girlfriend Kim Kardashian.

According to Kanye is designing a ring for Kardashian using diamonds and rubies from his late mother Donda’s jewellery collection. The rapper is crafting a unique ring at a private jeweller.

A source told the media outlet: “Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring.

“He then gave them to a private jeweller friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind engagement ring.

“Donda was such an important person in Kanye’s life, he thought the world of her and was devastated when she died.

“So, he kept all her jewellery as keepsakes – a lot of the pieces were items he bought over the years after he made it as a hip-hop star.

“And now, Kanye has found a woman he respects and loves just as much as his mom, so he wants to share her jewellery collection with Kim.”

However Kanye’s love Kim doesn’t have the best marriage track record as her 2011 marriage to Chris Humphries lasted a meager 72 days.

The source said that Kanye wants to wed in either Chicago where he was raised or Oklahoma where Donda is buried.

“Kanye is an emotional character and has earmarked Chicago or Oklahoma as the two places he’d love to wed Kim.”

The source also said that Kanye’s friends are advising him against bestowing his mother’s jewels on the reality star because he won’t get them back if the pair was to divorce.

The source explained: ‘His friends think it’s a terrible idea and are advising him not to give Kim the ring.

“Because it’s a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up.”
