Who Bought Kim's Engagement Ring?

Kim Kardashian announced her engagement to Kris Humphries with a People cover prominently featuring her engagement ring. We have the details on the bauble -- but who really bought it?

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian is engaged to Kris Humphries, and her engagement ring is nothing to sneeze at. The reality princess is sporting a 20.5 total carat weight sparkler worth $2 million! Created by designer Lorraine Schwartz, the ring features a 16.5-carat emerald cut center stone flanked by a pair of trapezoid diamonds weighing in at two carats each.

Interesting, because that sounds pretty much exactly like one she was spotted wearing on her right hand as far back as 2009, when she was still with Reggie Bush.

So who actually bought Kim Kardashian's engagement ring? There are several suspects, and none of them are her fiancé Kris Humphries. Dude can't afford a $2 million ring -- he only pulls in $3.2 million a year. That's a lot more than two months' salary.

So that leaves two culprits: Kim Kardashian herself, and E! Since the Kardashians pulled in $65 million last year, a $2 million ring is a drop in the bucket -- and maybe Kim already had it. It's also not that far-fetched of an idea that E! and the executive producer of the Kardashian reality TV empire, Ryan Seacrest, kicked in some cash, considering the fact that this marriage gives the network yet another Kardashian reality show spinoff.

listen world mediatake got it right. this the same exact ring she used to pressure reggie to say "i do" right before she bought "their" house. kim's 15 mins of fame is coming to an end, so guess what? a new scheme so there will be a wedding and a spin off b/c be honest "kourtney & kim take new york" sucked. now khloe& lamar's path is now her's(attention is her drug). and the fact that he owns 4 five guys doesn't make him rich but having kardashian fans vote him in as an "all star" will be well worth it. no one has heard of him until now.

Well lets take a closer look shall we.. 1- Kimmie is a gold digger and well so is her mom. 2- We all have to know that both of them have looked into this young mans earning potential very closely. 3- Yeah he makes about 3 million a year from the NBA..but I have not seen much about the fact that this kid owns like 4 Five Guy restaurants in MN...yea I typed 4..which brings me to my last statement. Its pretty clear that he isnt counting on his NBA I mean he seems to have a plan and at 26...3 mill ayr from the NBA plus he owns a couple burger joints I would say he has a solid plan..as well as he bought the ring himself enough said.
