Replica of Kim Kardashian's engagement ring up for sale

A REPLICA of Kim Kardashian's engagement ring given to her by Kris Humphries, is available for sale by auction in Australia from today.

The custom made platinum diamond ring with an 1.50 carat E colour VS2 emerald cut diamond flanked by two 0.10ct trapezoid diamonds which was created by jeweller Ron Bensimon, has a reserve of $16,000.

"The original engagement ring, given to Kardashian by Kris Humphries before their short marriage, is expected to fetch around $500,000 at auction at Christie's on Tuesday 15th October in New York; a far cry from the $2 million reportedly paid for the ring in the first place," a Bensimon spokesperson said.

Those interested in placing a bid on the replica can do so from today at http://www.bensimon.com.au.
