Kim Kardashian’s ‘Perfect’ 20.5 Carat Diamond Engagement Ring!

Kim Kardashian had long dreamed of the perfect man—and the perfect ring. “In high school I went to Macy’s and bought this fake ring, my ‘perfect’ ring, and this is almost the exact same,” she says, staring down at the 20-plus-carat gem Humphries designed with jeweler Lorraine Schwartz, a longtime Kardashian friend who has not only decked Kim in her gorgeous jewels for events like the Emmy Awards but has also created engagement rings for stars like Beyoncé.

Wanting something distinctly her own (“Khloé’s is a radiant cut,” she says of her sister’s ring), the reality star loves the classic design. Humphries had simpler requirements: “I just knew I wanted it to be big!” And he got more than big, as Kim gushed, “It’s the most beautiful thing I have ever seen,” says Kardashian of the ring. “It’s perfect.”

The 16.5-carat emerald cut center stone is flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids, for a total weight of 20.5 carats! Humphries even managed to work out the design without Kim knowing. Kardashian explains, “[Lorraine] always listened to what I would want and the shapes I love. I had said I loved an emerald cut and they were scheming and plotting for a while.” Humphries confided his plans in his parents, but felt confident in his decision. “I knew she’d love it–she better!”

Is her $2 million engagement ring tacky – or sweet? JOIN THE DISCUSSION!

Green Seal Launches New Health and Safety Standards For Beauty Products‏.


What “green” means in beauty is changing rapidly.

With the consumer increasingly concerned about the ingredients used in products, it’s now also about health and safety. With the FTC about to finalize guidelines about how green products can be marketed, it is about transparency and independent verification of claims. And in a rough economic environment, it’s also about product performance – green products won’t sell unless they perform.

That’s why the new standards covering soaps and shower products, personal care and cosmetic products from Green Seal are so important. They are the first in the U.S. to cover the whole-life cycle of products – not just environmental impact, but health and safety as well. And they carry with them product performance requirements.

Green Seal is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to safeguarding human health and the environment. Founded in 1989, it is the original “green seal of approval,” providing independent certification on green claims for products and services.
