THE TALK of the town these days is Kourtney Kardashian’s engagement to her rocker boyfriend Travis Barker.
The two have only been dating for a few months but know they belong together, according to a psychic.
But the most shocking part is not how quickly they agreed to tie the knot, but the stunning rock on Kourtney’s hand.
Kourtney’s engagement ring has been valued at $1million, according to diamond experts at Steven Stone, after Travis popped the question in a stunning beach proposal on Sunday.
The eight-carat gem sat on a simple pave band, allotting all attention towards the stunning center gem.
Expert Max Stone revealed: “In true Kardashian style, Kourtney’s ring is a real showstopper. The huge oval diamond is a VS2 grade, which is of the highest quality.
“From looking at the photographs posted on Instagram it looks to be around 8 carats,” he estimated.
“The huge stone is set on a thin pave band for extra sparkle. The simplicity of the setting extenuates the size of the stone, making it look even larger.
The diamond expert continued: “With this in mind, it is most likely worth around $1 million. This is definitely one of this year’s most incredible celebrity engagement rings, and it’s likely we’ll see an increase in demands for rings in this style over the coming months.”
KHLOE’S RING ‘FROM TRISTAN’

Earlier this year, Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson fueled engagement rings when the mom of one began showing off a massive diamond in her hand.
According to jewelry experts, Khloe’s ring looks to be a 13-carat diamond.
The most popular engagement ring size is 1 carat – so Khloe’s rock is ginormous compared to average.
The ring features a huge pear-shaped center stone, with two smaller carat diamonds on either side.
UK jewelry retailer, Steven Stone, has valued it at $2.5 million.
Diamond specialist Max Stone said: “The diamonds are on a three-stone setting on a platinum or white gold band. After taking a closer look, we estimate Khloe’s ring to be worth around $2.5million.”
KIM’S TWO RINGS FROM KANYE
When Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian back in 2013, he went all out and purchased a stunning 15-carat gem of an oval design, which was estimated to be $4M.
It was designed by celebrity jewelry designer Lorraine Schwartz, who used a flawless stone, a Type IIa cushion-cut diamond with a D color rating.
But Kanye’s devotion to Kim was proved once more just three years after she got the first one by getting her a second.
The second ring, which was stolen during the infamous Paris Robbery, was way bigger but not more expensive.
It might be worth an estimated $1.5 million.
Of course, upon receiving it, Kim flaunted her new bling constantly, which she later attributed to her being a target for the robbery.
Since the traumatic experience, Kim has stopped wearing as much jewelry and only wore a thin wedding band.
KIM’S RING FROM KRIS HUMPHRIES
Kris Humphries, who ties the knot with Kim, back in 2011 went to the same jeweler as Kanye to get the perfect bling for his bride.
Estimated to be worth over $2M, it weighed in at 19.8 carats, with its 16.2-carat center rock.
Unfortunately, the ring was not enough to keep Kim in the marriage as she filed for divorce just 72 days after they married.
The ring was actually auctioned off in October of 2013 for $749,000 at a Christie’s New York Magnificent Jewels auction.
KHLOE’S BLIND FROM LAMAR ODOM
When Khloe got engaged to Lamar Odom after just four weeks of dating back in 2009, it’s needless to say that people were shocked.
Despite the speed of the engagement, people were even more surprised by the size of her ring.
According to Brilliance.com, it featured a massive square-cut diamond at its center, plus accent diamonds all over.
The ring contained approximately 12.5 carats of diamonds altogether and was valued at about $850,000 at the time.
