According to the Daily Mail, Humphries may have reached a deal to auction off the 16-carat engagement ring he bought for Kardashian at an upcoming Christie’s auction in New York. It is not known for certain if the ring belongs to Humphries, but the description perfectly matches the ring that Humphries gave Kardashian before their fake marriage that duped us all ended 72 days later.
The Lorraine Schwartz ring is expected to bring between $300,000 to $500,000, though initial reports claimed it cost around $2 million.
The item is listed as the “property of a gentleman” and includes a 16.21-carat diamond with the same rectangular cut as the one Kim K. was given. The main stone is surrounded by a 1.8-carat diamond on either side, which adds up to just under 20 carats. The ring Humphries gave Kardashian was said to be over 20 carats, but hey, that also could have been a lie.
For what it’s worth, the auction house also said that a portion of the money the ring brings will be donated to charity by the owner.
We don’t know for sure if the ring belongs to Humphries, but we do know he was reportedly seeking $7 million from Kardashian earlier this year in addition to an admission that their marriage was a sham. It doesn’t appear that they ever squared up, so maybe selling the ring is Humphries’ backup plan.Google+
