So despite only being married for something like a month and a half, Kim Kardashian has decided that wearing a wedding ring is hard and has announced that you might see her out and about without it on, but that’s okay because it’s just a matter of not over-accessorizing! You know, because wedding bands, which are basically just unadorned rings, are so gaudy. So very, very gaudy. Us Weekly reports:
The 30-year-old newlywed has some serious bling: her 20.5-carat platinum engagement ring is worth an estimated $1 million, and her platinum and diamond Lorraine Schwartz wedding band is worth around $200,000. “[But] I don’t wear [any jewelry] to work out,” she told Women’s Wear Daily in an interview published Tuesday. “I was leaving the gym yesterday and I didn’t have my [wedding] ring on, and there [were] all these photographers taking pictures, and I said to my sister, ‘Just watch, Kourtney. You will see a story [bearing the headline] ‘Kim Without Her Ring. Trouble in Paradise.'”
Part of me feels like this is bullshit because, unlike an engagement ring that’s usually adorned with stones and such, wedding bands are usually more simple and incognito, so saying you took it off because it was too gaudy (as opposed to, say, you needed to wash the dishes or something) is kinda bullshit. And then I remembered that this is Kim Kardashian, and that she herself is so fucking gaudy that she would probably wear a chandelier on her ring finger and call it a wedding ring, so I can see why she might want to take that off in order to make sex tapes go to the gym.
