Kanye West has never been a man of small gestures, so his latest treat for daughter North does not even surprise us.
According to HollywoodLife, the 36-year-old rapper is working with Lorraine Schwartz to create a tiny diamond ring for his 16-month-old little girl.
Keeping it in the family (Lorraine also designed Kim‘s $1.25 million15-carat engagement ring), Kanye has asked the famed jewellery designer to adorn the band with tiny princess cut diamonds, with the idea of Nori wearing it on her ring finger.
And the reason? Because Kanye wants to be the first man to put a ring on his litte girl’s finger, obv. Oh, Mr West…
‘He’s in the process of designing her a one-of-a-kind diamond ring for her to wear on her wedding finger’, a source told the publication. ‘It symbolizes Dada’s love for his little angel.’
‘Call him crazy, but that’s what he’s doing. He says it’s going to be princess cut with her name engraved in the band and will have the biggest diamond on it that she can possibly carry on her little finger.’
But it looks like North will have to wait a little longer before receiving her mega bling gift…
‘He’s waiting until she gets a little older and will have Lorraine make it to fit her little finger’, the source continues. ‘He will do nothing short of spoiling her because that’s what he wants to do. That little girl means everything to him and there’s not a limit on what she can have.’
On Monday, mum Kim paid her own special ring tribute to their daughter, stepping out with gold letter rings on each of her fingers that spelt out ‘North West’.
The Kimye competition is on! Who will out-ring the other when it comes to little Nori? Let’s wait and see, shall we…
