Kim Kardashian Spotted Without Her Engagement Ring in Rare Post-Robbery Appearance
Kim Kardashian was missing a key piece of jewelry while out and about Saturday night, in what marked another rare public sighting of her since she survived an armed robbery in Paris two months ago.
The 36-year-old was photographed driving an SUV, with her 1-year-old son, Saint, in the back seat and friend Brittny Gastineau in the front passenger’s seat. Kim did not appear to wear her engagement ring from husband Kanye West, instead sporting a plain gold wedding band.
The reality star has largely kept out of the public eye since robbers held her at gunpoint in Paris and stole at almost $11 million worth of her jewelry, including one of her diamond rings that was reportedly an “upgraded” 20-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring Kanye had given to her in September. Kanye had proposed to her in 2013 with a 15-carat ring.
Kim has not been photographed with an engagement ring shown since the robbery. She gone, however, gone totally ringless while out and about before, although rarely.
Kim and Kanye have recently been the subject of breakup rumors. Neither she nor the rapper, who has been laying low himself since his hospital stay for exhaustion, has commented about the reports.
A source had told E! News last week that Kim and Kanye were together at their Los Angeles home and appeared “very sweet together and were very much together.” Another source had said the two are “strong” and doing fine as a couple.
Kim was ringless when she was spotted in New York hours after the robbery. A day before the incident, she had appeared at an event in the city wearing on her ring finger a massive emerald-cut diamond ring—similar to both rings Kanye gave her.
Gastineau had spent time at Kim and Kanye’s Bel-Air home Saturday. She posted on Snapchat footage of the couple’s giant Christmas tree and outside holiday decor. On Friday, Kim had surfaced in friend Jonathan Cheban‘s Snapchat. He had shared a video of her and Kanye’s tree and she can be heard talking in the background.
