With the start of the second season of The Kardashians on Hulu, the iconic family has returned to our televisions to deliver us more drama, sarcastic one liners, fashion, and yes, diamonds. The Kardashian family is no strangers to diamonds. You may recall one of the most notable Kardashian diamond moments where Kim lost her Tiffany & Co. diamond stud earring after being thrown into the clear blue waters of Bora Bora. Who could forget Kim’s cries to which her eldest sister, Kourtney, responded, “Kim. There’s people that are dying.” Lucky for Kim, the earring was found!
Looking back on the first season of The Kardashians, and years before during the era of Keeping Up With The Kardashians on E!, their diamond collections have only gotten better. Here is a look at the Kardashians best, and most memorable diamond moments.
1. The 2022 Met Gala
At the 2022 Met Gala, fans watched Kim shimmy up the Met steps while wearing Marilyn Monroe’s dress. The actress had the dress specially made for her by Bob Mackie and wore it most famously when she sang “happy birthday” to President Kennedy. Something you may not have noticed from Kim’s recreation of Marilyn was her Cartier diamond earrings to compliment the dress.
She wasn’t the only family member to strut the carpet in diamonds. Kendall Jenner wore a Prada gown and sported a pair of pear-shaped diamond earrings from jeweller, Lorraine Schwartz, who notoriously adorns the Kardashians in diamonds. Momager, Kris Jenner, wore a pair of Lorraine Schwartz white cushion cut diamonds with canary yellow pear-shaped diamond drop earrings, a total of 50 carats, and an Oscar de la Renta gown.
2. Kourtney Kardashian’s Engagement Ring
In the first season of The Kardashians, fans watched Travis Barker propose to Kourtney on the beach in Santa Barbara surrounded by thousands of roses. Barker chose a jaw-dropping oval cut diamond, with a hidden halo, set on a petite diamond band from Lorraine Schwartz for the Poosh founder. Later in the season, the ring had to undergo repairs after accidentally being stepped on by the bride-to-be.
Kardashian said on the show, “I was sitting on the floor folding sweatshirts. I took the ring off and I put it next to me on the floor, like thinking it would be safe right next to me. I had to get something up above in my closet, and when I stepped down, I stepped on the ring.” Luckily, the ring was repaired just in time for their romantic wedding in Portofino, Italy.
3. Kim’s Diamond Name Plate
Kim’s Balenciaga-chic era reached a new level after she was gifted a diamond nameplate by Eric Mavani. The Skims founder’s new ice features a white diamond encrusted Cuban link and pink hearts, which connect the links, covered in pink diamonds.
4. Kim’s Diamond Grill
Aside from her diamond nameplate, Kim has a few impressive diamond grills. She treated herself on her birthday to a diamond grill with an opal center (her birthstone). The grill was made by Manhattan based jewellery designer, Gabby Elan Jewelry.
5. Kendall Jenner and Messika
In January, Messika announced Kendall Jenner as the face of its new campaign. The model looked radiant while wearing Messika’s easy-to-wear diamond jewels. “Messika’s jewellery has always reminded me of Paris, one of my favorite cities,” explains Kendall in the press release. “During the shoot, I was able to see so many beautiful pieces, which gave me a deeper appreciation for the craftsmanship of the house that goes into even the smallest earring.”
6. Kylie Jenner and Stormi Webster’s Matching Rings
Last year, Travis Scott gifted Kylie and their daughter Stormi matching Toi et Moi rings made of two diamonds: one radiant and pear, the other square. The mother daughter duo showed off their new rings on Instagram writing, “Daddy got us matching rings 🤍⛈.” Stormi isn’t the only Kardashian / Jenner child who has received diamonds at a young age.
7. North West’s Diamond Earrings
For North West’s first birthday, Lorraine Schwartz created and gifted the toddler with tiny, yet shiny, half carat diamond earrings. You are never too young for diamonds!
8. KKW Fragrance Shoot
Kim, Kourtney, and Khloé dazzled in none other than Lorraine Schwartz diamonds on the set of Kim’s KKW Diamond fragrance photoshoot. There are three fragrances in the shoot, Khloé with the Pink Diamond, Kim with the White Diamond and Kourtney with the Yellow Diamond fragrance. Of course, to match each fragrance, the sisters wore a huge assortment of natural diamonds in each colour.
Khloe’s selection included ultra-rare pink diamonds, Kourtney was paired with fancy yellow diamonds, and Kim was head to toe in white diamonds. In total, this huge selection of bracelets, neckless, earrings, and rings was worth more than $30 Million.
