Kanye West Engagement Ring: How Much Did It Cost?

by at . Comments

No one can ever accuse Kanye West of being cheap.

The rapper rented out AT&T Park in San Francisco on Monday night and proposed to Kim Kardashian, a move that set the artist back at least $220,000.

That's the going rate for taking over the venue, sources confirm, with the first $200,000 going to field access and the rest to use the HD scoreboard, cameras and technical crews..

Then there was the 50-piece orchestra which played throughout the evening.

But, really, of course, is all comes down to the Kim Kardashian engagement ring.

At 15 carats, it may seem cheaper than the 20.5 carat rock bestowed upon Kim by Kris Humphries a couple years ago - which reportedly cost $2 million - but Forevermark Diamond expert Adelaide Polk-Bauman explains to The New York Daily News why Kanye's ring set him back more.

Much, much more.

It is a flawless, D-cushion cut designed by famed jeweler Lorraine Schwartz and "this is exceptionally rare," Polk-Bauman says. "Very few places in the world have diamonds such as that.”

She values the engagement ring at $8 million.

Kardashian gushed to E! News yesterday that she's marrying her best friend and well wishes continues to pour in from across the country.

But will this Kimye engagement actually last? You tell us!
