With 20-yr old Kylie Jenner making it to the cover of Forbes magazine this coming August as she is set to become the youngest self-made billionaire, people are going crazy about how the Kardashian sisters were able to leverage extreme fame to build massive net worth.
But, we are more interested in the rocks and metals they’re wearing, especially their engagement rings. We can’t help but wonder which sister is the wealthiest in terms of carat size.
The ring: 20 carats, D, Type 2A, emerald-cut
Jeweller: Lorraine Schwartz
How much: $10 million (estimate only)
Perhaps the most popular and influential sister among the pack is Kim Kardashian-West who catapulted to first received media attention as a friend and stylist of Paris Hilton in 2003. Her popularity soared when her family began to appear in the hit E! Reality TV show Keeping Up With the Kardashians in 2007.
The TV personality and socialite banked on her fame to create multiple businesses and score major endorsements. In 2016, Vogue dubbed Kim as a ‘pop culture phenomenon’.
She has a combined 119.5 million social media followers and she’s not ashamed to show off her lavish lifestyle on Instagram – from expensive clothing, VIP parties, snapshots of her latest campaigns (for KKW Beauty and KKW Fragrance), cars, private jets, red carpet moments, and our personal favourite – custom jewellery.
It goes without saying that Kim’s stunning engagement ring is a sight to behold. In 2013, Kim’s boyfriend (now husband) rapper and music producer Kanye West proposed with a massive diamond sparkler by Lorraine Schwartz with an estimated retail of around $3 million.
Unfortunately, this Schwartz piece was forcibly taken from the reality TV star by armed robbers, along with a jewellery box with another $6.7 million worth of jewellery on October 2016 during the Paris Fashion Week.
The stolen engagement ring was a gorgeous 15 carat D, flawless cushion cut diamond she was proposed to by Kanye West in 2013 at San Francisco’s AT&T Park.
Months after the Paris incident, Kanye gifted her wife a second engagement ring, this time a piece with a bigger centre stone. Kim’s new sparkler is a stunning 20 carat D, Type 2A emerald-cut diamond.
Ds are the purest and whitest colour diamonds. They are the hardest to find in nature and by far the most expensive. Type 2A diamonds are the most valued because they contain either very little or no nitrogen atoms in the crystal structure. What an upgrade, Kim!
The ring: 12.5-carat radiant-cut engagement ring with accent diamonds
How much: $850,000 (estimate only)
Like her older sister Kim, Khloe is also a multi-hyphenate celebrity. Aside from being a regular on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she’s a businesswoman, model, and a TV show host. She’s currently the host of ‘Revenge Body with Khloé Kardashian.’
Khloe is involved in the retail and fashion industries with her sisters Kourtney, Kim, and Kylie. Some of the ventures she’s partnered with include several clothing collections, fragrances, makeup, and cosmetics.
In September 2009, Khloe married Lamar Odom, a professional basketball player. According to US Weekly, Khloe’s engagement ring has an estimated $850,000 price tag. It’s a 12.5-carat radiant-cut engagement ring with accent diamonds all over it.
The marriage only lasted a few years and the couple officially divorced in December 2016.
Khloe is currently dating basketball Tristan Thompson with whom she has a baby girl named True, born in April 2018.
Although Khloe is not yet ready to tie the knot with her current beau, she has been spotted with a huge sparkler on her engagement ring finger as she threw a Fourth of July party with boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
The technicalities of the Khloe’s diamond ring from Thompson is unclear, but we are hoping to know more about it soon. Give us a closer look, Khloe!
Apart from her fame in the popular reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Kourtney’s love life has been sprayed across social media since she was proposed to by Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. Kourtney Kardashian said the big yes to her love after one year but can you blame her? The reality star has been seen rocking a beautiful oval-cut diamond engagement ring with a big price tag of $1.35 million. Set in a luxurious diamond band, the elongated shape of the oval is an exquisite piece.
Oval diamonds have become increasingly popular in engagement rings as a more unique alternative to the classic round diamond. They have an effortless ability to elongate the finger and give the illusion of a larger stone even when the same carat weight as, say, a round. But why have a Kardashian ring when you can have one that is custom made especially for you? At Monty Adams, all pieces are custom made to suit your individual budget and requirements. So if you love Kourtney’s new ring, get in touch with us to see how you can co-create one just for you and within your budget.

Jeweller: XIV Karats
How much: $450 (estimate only)
The youngest of the Kardashian-Jenner brood is making waves as she’s set to be the youngest self-made billionaire ever.
At age 20, Kylie has achieved so much more than the average 20 years olds of her generation. The reality TV star turned entrepreneur is juggling motherhood and a multi-million dollar makeup and cosmetics empire.
Kylie practically grew up in front of the cameras. She was 10 when Keeping Up With The Kardashians first aired on TV. At an early age, she has shown a love for design and acting. In her teens, Kylie started to dabble in business with her sister Kendall, launching clothing and jewellery businesses. Growing up in an entrepreneurial family, it looks like the youngest Kardashian-Jenner got the entrepreneurial bug too.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star turned CEO commands an estimated net worth of $900 million. Jenner’s eponymous cosmetics line is now worth close to $800 million according to Forbes.
While Kylie’s personal and professional affairs are no secret to the public, she is keeping her fans guessing to a possible engagement to her boyfriend Travis Scott.
After a month since welcoming their first child, Kylie showed off a personalized diamond ring on her wedding finger which has the initials of her boyfriend’s birth name, Jacques Webster.
According to People, Kylie’s ring costs an estimated $450 from XIV Karats. But, it turned out that the ring is just a ring. The rumours died down but marriage speculations rose again when Kylie was seen sporting two stacks of diamond rings while she was out and about with best friend Jordyn Woods on a Saturday afternoon last April.
The rings look like full eternity rings embellished with diamond stones so sparkly you can see them from miles away. Kylie likes to tease her fans. We promise to keep our eyes peeled for engagement (ring) announcements!
Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner
The oldest and the second to the youngest siblings are as successful as their other sisters and share the same status in terms of wearing custom engagement rings. Our favourite runway model, Kendall Jenner is the most private among her siblings and like to keep her personal affairs to herself as much as she can.
Kourtney, a mother of three was once proposed to by her former boyfriend, Scott Disick but the ring never surfaced because the couple actually never got engaged due to unclear reasons.
We will wait for your beautiful future engagement rings, Kourtney and Kendall!
