Does Kim Kardashian West get back the engagement ring that was stolen during her Paris robbery in 2016?
Fans check a double-take after the apparent return of the jewelry piece when the reality TV star posted Instagram photos of herself ornamented in bling to promote her KKW Fragrance Diamonds Collection last week.
Reports from ET and People telling that, one of Kardashian’s rings in the pics matching her second engagement ring, given to her by husband Kanye West in 2016.
The sources report the 20-carat ring was robbed during the armed robbery.
In an interview with ET released on Wednesday, Kardashian set the direct record. Clear out, the pieces she wore weren’t the ones that were stolen.
“I borrowed all jewelry from Lorraine Schwartz. It was nice to borrow it all and nice to give it back to her,” she told of the pieces she wore for the photographs. “That was a really fun shoot and because it was diamonds. I thought this was the perfect way to bring it back and wear them again.”
Kardashian West said that she’s borrowed from Schwartz before, because the jewelry designer, who created both engagement rings, “always knows the cut and everything that I really wanted.”
“So when I want to wear something, I’ll borrow it from her for the day,” she added. “There is a replica around. A little fake that I’ll borrow from her sometimes that she made. A really nice one.”
Officials informed the Associated Press in 2016 that armed robbers tied Kardashian up and locked her in a bathroom during the robbery.
The thieves left with more than $10 million of jewelry, police told. The list of stolen items included a jewelry box containing valuables worth $6.7 million, as well as a ring worth $4.5 million, according to the AP.
Nothing of the stolen property was ever recovered.
