We haven’t seen Kim Kardashian West dripping in diamonds for a while now. After the Great Parisian Jewelry Heist of 2016, Kim vowed to stop telegraphing her appalling taste in jewelry on Instagram. But like a moth to a flame, or a fruit fly to a rotten pear (shaped diamond), Kim just had to find some excuse to remind everybody she’s very, very rich. Kim’s revenue stream #74, KKW Fragrance Diamonds Collection, gives her the perfect opportunity to flex. According to Entertainment Tonight, Kim caused some confusion when in an Instagram post advertising her smell, one of the 90lbs of rocks she was wearing appeared to be the enormous $4 million 20-carat emerald-cut engagement ring that was stolen in Paris. You know, the second engagement ring Kanye West gifted her, which I’ll call Fat Man to avoid confusion (the 15-carat starter ring, AKA Little Boy, wasn’t stolen). Well, everybody can relax, Kim hasn’t been hiding Fat Man in her labial folds this whole time. All the jewels for the shoot were borrowed.
Here’s the #ads in which Fat Man appeared to return.
In an interview with ET promoting SKIMS, aka KKW revenue stream #92, Kim made it clear that these are not her diamonds, so don’t you even think about it! Kim’s personal collection only comes out on Tuesdays when she fills her tub with the contents of her safe and has her diamond bath.
“I borrowed all jewelry from Lorraine Schwartz. It was nice to borrow it all and nice to give it back to her,” Kim told ET’s Lauren Zima on Tuesday, while promoting her new SKIMS collection in Los Angeles. “That was a really fun shoot and because it was diamonds, I thought this was the perfect way to bring it back and wear them again.”
As to the stolen ring, Kim says there’s a fake one she sometimes borrows when she’s feeling poor I guess.
“She always knows the cut and everything that I really wanted. So when I want to wear something, I’ll borrow it from her for the day,” she continued, adding that, “There is a replica around. A little fake that I’ll borrow from her sometimes that she made. A really nice one. It looks really nice.”
Speaking of fake, apparently all the Kardashian sisters have been jonesing for jewels. They all participated in the Diamond Collection photo shoot. You ever have a dream of being chased by demonic Barbie dolls you’ve already doused in gasoline, burned and then buried in consecrated earth, effectively sending them to hell, only to have them return after they’ve spent an eternity in Hell’s Congolese blood diamond district? No, just me?
Well, welcome to the club!
