The insider says Kanye asked a private jeweler to make an engagement ring out of diamonds and rubies from his late mom Donda's personal jewelry collection:
“Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring. He then gave them to a private jeweler friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind engagment ring.“
Donda was a big part of his life, and Kanye reportedly respects and loves Kim just as much as his mother.
His close friends may not agree, though:
“His friends think it’s a terrible idea and are advising him not to give Kim the ring. Because it’s a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up. They’ve also reminded him that Kim is not somebody who works hard for her money. She makes millions doing reality shows and selling her image, and Donda’s jewelry shouldn’t be part of that image."
As for where he'd like to wed, Kanye is said to be eyeing Chicago or Oklahoma.
