AceShowbiz - Kim Kardashian has set the record straight after fans noticed she was wearing what appeared to be her engagement ring that was stolen in Paris in a new campaign picture.
The reality star flaunted an array of stunning jewels in recent snaps promoting her new KKW fragrance Diamonds Collection, with her eagle-eyed followers quick to point out she was wearing the 20-carat emerald cut engagement ring given to her by husband Kanye West in 2016. Famously, the huge ring was stolen when Kim was robbed at gunpoint in her hotel suite in the French capital later that year.
Addressing the sudden return of the jewel, Kim told Entertainment Tonight that jeweller Lorraine Schwartz had made her a replica, which was as close to the original as could be.
"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," Kim said. "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."
Kim also took the opportunity during the interview to congratulate her sister Kylie Jenner amid the news that Coty recently acquired 51 per cent of Kylie's brands, Kylie Cosmetics and Kylie Skin, for $600 million.
Dismissing any speculation of a rivalry between herself and Kylie, Kim said, "I'm so proud of her. To think in her early 20s, she built a business off of something that she first was insecure about and finding confidence and, you know, just tapping into that and figuring out how to make an amazing product and just being true to herself and doing what she loves to do, that's so inspiring and so amazing and I'm so proud of her."
She also revealed that Kylie had wanted to sell her business "for a long time," and made the decision to sell just over half of it "about a year ago."
