How much would you pay for the symbol of the broken marriage between Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries?
stalker fan eager buyer really wanted it and opened up the check book for it. The reality star’s engagement ring from ex-husband Kris Humphries sold at a Christie’s auction in NYC on Tuesday, Oct. 15 for a whopping $620,000. The online buyer purchased the Lorraine Schwartz creation, which features a 16.21-carat center diamond and two 1.8-carat side diamonds. After adding on Christie’s buyer’s premium fees, the anonymous buyer will pay a total of $749,000 for the ring.
Although the price seems extravagant, the ring’s initial reported value is over $2 million. Does anything over $700,000 count as a steal?
It was confirmed in September that Humphries was selling the ring with which he proposed to Kardashian back in May 2011 (didn’t the E television network pay for that ring?). The auction catalog noted a portion of the proceeds from the item’s sale would benefit an as-yet-undetermined charity.
The two were married for a grand total of 72 days before Kardashian filed for divorce on October 31, 2011. Kardashian and Humphries finalized their divorce in May of this year.
