Kanye West wants to give Kim Kardashian an engagement ring made with his mom's jewels




Can you not wait until Kim Kardashian's divorce from Kris Humphries is finalized? Neither can Kanye West, since it's rumored he's already asking a jeweler to make Kim an engagement ring from stones from his late mother Donda's personal collection. That's sweet and sincere, right? Not at all creepy? We can't tell anymore.

"Kanye picked out some of Donda's most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring," a source tells RadarOnline. "He then gave them to a private jeweler friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind engagement ring. Donda was such an important person in Kanye’s life, he thought the world of her and was devastated when she died. So, he kept all her jewelry as keepsakes -- a lot of the pieces were items he bought over the years after he made it as a hip-hop star. ... He's hoping to propose to Kim with the ring when she finally gets divorced."

Thankfully, it sounds like some folks around Kanye have their heads screwed on the right way: "His friends think it's a terrible idea and are advising him not to give Kim the ring," the source says "Because it's a gift, it would be difficult for Kanye to ask for it back if they ever split up." Plus, would you really want Kim Kardashian wearing your mom's jewelry?

Even stranger are the reports he wants to get married either in Oklahhoma, where Donda is buried, or in Chicago, "which he credits for giving him inspiration for building his glittering career," the source says. We thought his failed college career was the inspiration for that.
