What do you get when a certified rockstar gets down on one knee to ask his socialite girlfriend to be his wife? A stunning oval diamond of estimated 12 carats nestling on a platinum band worth almost a million dollars! Yes, that's how much the Kourtney Kardashian engagement ring was worth.
In October 2021, then fiancé Travis Barker and now husband, the famed drummer of Blink 182, popped the question with a beautifully cut diamond stone on a beach before heading to a hotel suite to celebrate with friends and family that included Kris Jenner, Kim Kardashian and others close to the couple.
All was revealed to the world in an episode of the Kardashians featured in their reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It was the perfect fairytale moment for Kourtney while she gushed over the flawless beautifully cut diamond. A big part of their journey commenced with Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker, soon to be Mr. and Mrs.
The Kourtney engagement ring, or as many people call it, the Kourtney Kardashian ring because any ring owned by a Kardashian deserves to be named after one, is a stellar piece radiating a spectacular sparkle.
Travis collaborated with Lorraine Schwartz to create the custom-made ring just like Kanye West did when he spent long nights getting Kim K a ring he envisioned so clearly. The rocker surely put a lot of thought into choosing a unique ring for the woman he fell in love with. When the couple walked down the aisle seven months after their engagement, the couple chose modestly priced matching diamond bands as wedding rings. But did you know that Kourtney Kardashian stepped on the ring and broke it? Yes, the Kourtney Kardashian engagement ring is no more.
In yet another episode of the Kardashians' popular reality TV show, she revealed how she was seated on the floor folding sweatshirts when she became aware of her blunder. She spoke of how she was sitting on the floor and had the ring taken off, thinking it would remain safe right beside her. She accidentally stepped on the ring when she stepped out of her closet.
She was hysterically crying for a long time as she had a complete nervous breakdown concerning this mishap. When she called Travis, he was the perfect man. He handled her mood and made her feel better. When it comes to the Kardashians, The Kourtney Kardashian engagement ring is not the only diamond engagement ring to have made it in the family. There sure have been more rings.
Kim Kardashian once owned a square cut diamond ring estimated to be almost 2 million dollars given to her by basketballer Kris Humphries. She also owned a 15 Ct cushion cut ring when Kanye West asked her to be his wife. Kim's sister, Khloe Kardashian, also owned a 12.5-carat diamond engagement ring estimated to cost around 850,000 dollars given to her by basketballer Lamar Odom.
Kris Jenner, Kim's mother, also owns a 20.5-carat diamond engagement ring, a jewelry piece she kept post her divorce. So when you consider the Kourtney Kardashian engagement ring and the other rings mentioned above, it’s fair to say it's raining Carats at the Kardashians!
