However, the marriage was short-lived, and Kim Kardashian filed for divorce from Kris Humphries after only 72 days of marriage, with the divorce being finalized in 2013.

Kris Humphries proposed to Kim Kardashian with a 20.5-carat emerald cut Lorraine Schwartz diamond engagement ring. The ring was quite extravagant and garnered a lot of attention due to its size and design.
