Kim Kardashian‘s huge 20-carat engagement ring given to her by ex-hubby Kris Humphries has sold for $749,000, it’s being reported.
The sparkling reminder of her failed 72-day marriage to the NBA basketball player was bought by an anonymous buyer at Christie’s auction house in New York, revealed Us Weekly.
Originally thought to fetch under half a million dollars (even though the ring was reportedly bought for a massive $2 million!) the glitzy rock brought home slightly more than the asking price – that’s either heading to the ring finger of one lucky bride-to-be or the biggest Kardashian fan on the planet.
“As the finale of the morning session, Lot 194 saw active participation in the room, on the phone banks, and from Christie’s LIVE,'” auction house spokesman Gabriel Ford told MailOnline.
“This impressive diamond ring was sought out by 2 bidders in the back of the room, one online bidder and was ultimately won by a bidder on the phone.”
Kris’ jewellery clear-out was confirmed last month and now the two are rid of the ring it looks like Kim’s finger has room for a new one! Go on, Kanye. You know you want to…
