Is Khloe Kardashian engaged to Tristan Thompson? Here's the cost of her giant diamond ring
The on-again and off-again couple is reportedly trying for a second child, a sibling for their daughter True Thompson
Khloe Kardashian teased engagement rumors to frantic fans on February 21, as she posted a photo of herself in a sexy bikini bottom, sporting a huge diamond ring on her finger. Fans did not delay in flooding her feed with congratulatory comments, speculating her engagement with boyfriend Tristan Thompson. The on-again and off-again couple share daughter True Thompson together, who is about to turn three this April.
What was the meaning of Khloe's caption and cryptic response?
On Sunday, the 36-year-old reality TV star posted the risqué shot of herself in a black top and skimpy bikini bottoms, while wearing high-heeled suede boots. She captioned the photo as "New @goodamerican shoes are dropping 2.25" - promoting her shoe line 'Good American', which she co-founded with Emma Grede in 2016.
Fans spotted the flashy ring almost immediately and started asking her to confirm if she is engaged. Her boyfriend Tristan Thompson jokingly commented "WOW!!!!!!! That grass is cut to perfection" - hinting at the neatly mowed grass lawn in the background of the photograph. "Is this her way of letting us know she’s engaged?!' asked one fan.
"Ok bling bling we see you," commented actor Christine Quinn. "THE RINGGGGGG GUYS," one excited fan responded. Khloe added fuel to the rumors with a response to TV writer Morgan Stewart's enthusiastic question, "ARE THEY". She replied, "Yep! They are!" along with a kiss emoji to the question, driving her followers into a frenzy of happiness.
However, a while later, she put the engagement rumors to rest for good, as she clarified, "My reply was to the question "are they?" My reply is "Yep they are"... Meaning yes the shoes are dropping on 2.25."
One fan seemed visibly annoyed at Khloe's denial and continued to believe that she might confirm her engagement later. "Posts a pic with something for people to assume.........later on states “no no, it’s not true.....2 weeks later.....”guys!! It’s true” 🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️🤦🏻♀️" - they commented.
What is the cost of Khloe's ring?
As a matter of fact, this diamond ring is not new on Khloe's fingers. She was spotted sporting the same piece of luxury jewelry in December 2020, when she was in Boston to visit her boyfriend Tristan Thompson. Rumors about her engagement were rife at that time also, but died down soon as there was no confirmation from the pair. 29-year-old Tristan Thompson plays basketball with the Boston Celtics.
The pair had been dating since 2016, after Khloe's split from former husband Lamar Odom. However, the NBA player reportedly cheated on her when he was seen kissing model Jordyn Woods in 2019, who was a friend of Kylie Jenner's. Following the incident, Khloe and Tristan broke up but reunited later.
In fact, DailyMail reports that the couple is going stronger than ever at the moment, as they are trying for a second child. Hence, the engagement rumors did not seem too far-fetched.
Meanwhile, the ring in question is an enormous pear-shaped diamond encircled by two smaller pavé diamonds. As per Shannon Delany-Ron, the Director of Communications at JamesAllen, the ring is estimated to cost between a whopping $500,000 and $750,000 and has to be between nine to ten carats in clarity, reported E!
