Kim Kardashian Could Be Getting Her 20-Carat Engagement Ring Back!
All is (almost) right in the world again! Not only is the queen of social media Kim Kardashian back in action on Instagram, but sources also told Us Weekly that the reality television star could possibly be getting her $4 million engagement ring back.
The ring was a gift from husband Kanye West, which Kim debuted at the VMAs in August. The new ring, a 20-carat emerald-cut diamond with a band of pavé diamonds, was stolen from Kim in the beginning of October during Paris Fashion Week. But, justice has been served, and on Monday, January 9th, 17 suspects were arrested in connection to the robbery.
Two of the suspects were accused of disposing her ring, but they could potentially get it back. "They are involved in the diamond trade, and are thought to have handled the stolen jewelry," an insider told the magazine. "Their homes have been searched from top to bottom, and so has a jewelry shop in Paris which is also linked to them. The jewelry has not yet been found, but these brothers could lead us to it over the coming days."
Her engagement ring was just one part of the estimated $10 million worth of jewels that were stolen during the heist, where Kim was tied up and gagged by five armed robbers. While we don't know if the French police have any leads on the other pieces, they have a pretty good idea where her sparkly ring could be-Antwerp, Belgium, the diamond capital of the country. "It's a town where jewelry can be sold on with no questions asked," the source continued. "The men know the industry inside out, and may well know exactly where the ring went."
Here's to hoping that the police can track down the thieves and return Kim's engagement ring.
