Kim Kardashian's 20.5 carat ring has been all the celebrity engagement buzz for the last week, but did she buy it herself? That is also the buzz. That fiancé Kris Humphries did not in fact choose it and buy it for her, but rather the sizeable bauble was something Kim had in stock since 2009 and obtained it during her courtship with NFL-er Reggie White—if he popped the question, she had the perfect ring at the ready. At this point of course, all of this is speculation about Kim K's two million dollar sparkler, but it would not be the first time we've heard of famous ladies springing for their own bling. Jessica Simpson and Britney Spears did exactly the same. What are you thoughts on buying your own ring? Do? Don't? Not even a consideration? Maybe because you share funds with your mister anyway?
