Could wedding bells be in Kim and Kanye's future sooner than we think?
According to Radar Online, 'Ye has asked a private jeweler to design an engagement ring for girlfriend Kim Kardashian by using diamonds and rubies from his late mom Donda’s personal jewelry collection.
“Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring,” a source close to the rapper said.
“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 jewelry as keepsakes - a lot of the pieces were items he bought over the years after he made it as a hip-hop star," the source continued.
“And now, Kanye has found a woman he respects and loves just as much as his mom, so he wants to share her jewelry collection with Kim."
But it seems that there is some trouble in paradise. The source says Yeezy's friends do not condone his lavish ways.
“His friends think it’s a terrible idea and are advising him not to give Kim the ring,” the source says. “Because it’s a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up." The source added that friends say the 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star earns her money through endorsements and reality television, an image they feel Donda should not be associated with.
The source revealed that the "Way Too Cold" emcee plans to get down on one knee once Kim's divorce with ex-husband and basketball star Kris Humphries is finalized.
Sources also say not only has the G.O.O.D. Music leader considered the wedding bling and proposal, West even has two locations in mind.
"Oklahoma is his personal choice because his mother’s grave is there – and he wants her at his wedding in spirit," the source said. "But he hasn’t ruled out Chicago, which he credits for giving him inspiration for building his glittering career.”
