“Kim Kardashian and her family were decked out in ‘millions of dollars’ worth’ of jewelry this weekend by Lorraine Schwartz, a friend of the family and the bling expert who provided Kim’s eye-popping 15-carat engagement and the diamond-encircled wedding bands she and husband Kanye West slipped on each other’s fingers on Saturday,” E! Online reports. Unsurprisingly, sources report that the newly weds’ wedding bands were similarly lavish.
“West received a handmade gold band, while Kardashian now wears a handmade diamond band, which complemented her own diamond studs and her massive Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring,” People magazine reveals. Schwartz also designed West’s gold wedding band. The famous couple exchanged rings during an outdoor ceremony at Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy. The ceremony, anticipated by millions, took place on Saturday, May 24.
Several different styles inspired the millions’ worth of jewelry, worn by Kim, West, and various members of the Kardashian family, E! continues. “The jewelry is a mix of new and vintage cuts, reminiscent of old-world opulence,” a designer told E! Schwartz posted a picture of some of the jewelry worn at the ceremony and reception on her public Instagram account. The picture featured glistening bracelets, necklaces, earrings, and rings, studded with diamonds and rubies.
