Kanye West is reportedly designing an engagement ring for Kim Kardashian, mounting speculation that he is set to propose to the reality star.
The 35-year-old rapper is said to have asked a private jeweller to design
something for his girlfriend using diamonds and rubies from his late mother
Donda's personal collection.
According to what we gathered, Kanye is waiting to propose when the reality TV
star's divorce to former husband Kris Humpries is finalised.
A source said: "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."
The mole continued: "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 mum, so he wants to share her jewellery collection with Kim."
Meanwhile, Kanye is allegedly considering holding the nuptials in either Chicago where he grew up or Oklahoma where his late mother is buried.
However, according to reports, friends of the rapper have voiced their concern
over the lavish gesture, suggesting that it may be difficult to get the jewels
back if and Kim were ever to split.
