Getty has published some real up-close-and-personal shots of Kim Kardashian's 15-carat, conflict-free Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring—which, according to a rep for the brand, is something called "D-flawless." For the unfamiliar, that means, "It's the best color, clarity and cut there is. There's no comparison!"
The massive diamond and the over-the-top baseball field proposal are just the beginning of the Kimye wedding madness. Us Weekly reports that Kanye spoke about his wedding plans on air at Power 106FM yesterday. "Two words," he said. "Fighter jets." He's probably not joking.
Kanye also discussed his love of fashion during the interview, saying that the most he's paid for a T-shirt is "probably $1,000" for Lanvin and that if Tupac is the best rapper of all time, he wants to be "the Tupac" of clothing. The segment is more than an hour long because, well, the man loves to talk.
