Kris Humphries is willing to go to court to get back the 20.5 carat diamond Lorraine Schwartz ring he gave to ex-wife (of 72 days) Kim Kardashian, who thus far has refused to return it. Radar Online says:

The basketball player scored a huge discount on the massive bauble, which was valued at a retail price of $2 million, but he still splashed out a cool $750,000 of his hard earned cash for the ring.

“Kris is adamant that he wants the ring back,” a source close to the situation [says]. “And it’s becoming a real sticking point between his and Kim’s attorneys. She has made it plain that she has no intention of returning it though and feels she is within her legal right to refuse as she went through with the wedding. However, Kris contends that the marriage was a total sham and that Kim only wed him for publicity so therefore she has no right to keep such an expensive gift.

“Kris doesn’t understand why Kim would even want to keep the ring anyway. It obviously has no sentimental value as she has publicly declared their wedding as ‘a huge mistake,’ so why doesn’t she just return it to him?”

Why? Because it will be worth twice as much when she sells it on Ebay under the guise of doing it for charity but actually retaining 90% of the profits, that’s why. The Kardashian business model never deviates.

Get a black jumpsuit like Kim’s here from Zac Posen. Maybe you could also find a mortician to do your makeup. Then you’d be twinsies!

This is the first really clear shot of the engagement ring Brad Pitt spent a year designing with jeweler Robert Procop for his new bride-to-be, Angelina Jolie. The Daily Mail says:

Procop said: ‘Brad had a specific vision for this ring. He wanted every aspect of it to be perfect. Brad was always heavily involved [in] overseeing every aspect of the design evolution, [insisting on a] diamond of the finest quality cut to an exact custom size and shape to suite Angelina’s hand.”

Experts estimate the ring cost around $250,000.

Wait, did you catch that? Angie’s ring only cost a quarter of a million dollars, but you’ll remember he spent HALF a million on the ring he designed for ex-wife Jennifer Aniston. Oh, you didn’t remember that? Yeah, me neither. Good thing Jen called up Us Magazine to remind them, then! Yahoo News says:

It looks like Pitt, 48, has gotten a bit more conservative when it comes down to the price tag. Back in 1999, Aniston’s ring, which she debuted during a Sting concert in NYC, was estimated to be worth around $500,000; jewelry expert Michael O’Connor quoted Jolie’s ring to be somewhere around $250,000.

This is probably the best day that Jennifer Aniston’s had since the first reviews of “The Tourist” came in. It’s the little victories in life that keep us from killing ourselves.

Her marriage didn’t make it to the three-month mark, but Kim Kardashian will still be keeping her $2 million engagement ring. And if she keeps it, it means it cost Kris Humprhies roughly $28,000 a day for every day of their sham marriage. The Daily Mail says:

NBA star Kris Humphries was hoping to get the 20.5 carat diamond back from his now estranged wife

However, Kim’s mother and manager Kris Jenner, 55, has nixed the idea.

‘It’s a gift – you keep a gift,’ Jenner, the matriarch of the Kardashian clan, told Good Morning America while promoting her new memoir.

She added: ‘I hate an Indian giver.’

See if you can guess if anyone was outraged and offended by her use of the term “Indian giver.”

The phrase, which is considered offensive to American Indians, describes a person who gives a present and later wants it back.

And the comment has enraged many, with a spokesperson for the largest American Indian and Alaska Native organization in the country, The National Congress of American Indians labeling the remark ‘wrong and hurtful’.

If anything’s wrong and hurtful here, it’s the passing off of a two-hour long commercial as a marriage. Also wrong and hurtful: Khloe Kardashian’s face. Jesus. That’s usually kind of face you only make when you’re in the middle of hocking up a loogie.

hilary duff million dollar engagement ring

Hilary Duff is now officially engaged to hockey player Mike Comrie, and she’s got the ice-rink-on-the-finger to prove it. According to Us Magazine

Comrie, 29, gave her a 14-carat, radiant-cut engagement ring. Estimated price? $1 million.

He could have just as easily gone with a a Ring-Ding and saved himself $999,998.25. From the looks of those hips, the easiest way to get through to Hilary’s heart is through a stomach full of frosted creme-filled Devil’s Food Cakes. Sometimes thinking outside the box can really save you a bundle. Or thinking inside the box, as it were, if the box just happens to be full of individually-wrapped snack cakes.

Once again Winona Ryder finds herself the victim of a “misunderstanding” that could easily be construed as “blatant theft” — a diamond ring and bracelet on loan to Klepty McStealsalot mysteriously went missing from her Madrid hotel. TMZ says

Winona was in Madrid Sunday for a Marie Claire event. Marie Claire had given Winona a [$125,000] Bulgari bracelet and a ring to wear, [along with] a dress and shoes.

After Winona left Madrid, the bracelet and ring turned up missing. Winona claimed she went to the front desk at the hotel and gave the jewelry to the front desk, but the surveillance cam doesn’t show her doing that.

So… security cameras can be used to prove your innocence? Wow. Didn’t see that one coming. I’ll just be adding that to my “Reasons to Install a Hidden Camera in My Anus” list, right between “extreme impact porn market” and “irrefutable proof of alien probes.” Note to self: genius.

Wearing the jewelery in question at the Marie Claire Prix de la Mode Awards last week:
