Los Angeles: Kim Kardashian's ex-husband Kris Humphries is auctioning off reality TV star's 20-carat diamond engagement ring. The NBA player has reportedly listed the ring for an October 15 sale at Christie's auction house in New York City.
Humphries is not named explicitly as the seller, but according to reports, the ring in question is identical to the one Kardashian wore during her brief engagement and marriage to the athlete.
A representative for Christie's confirmed that the ring up for auction is a Lorraine Schwartz creation with a 16.21-carat center diamond and two 1.80-carat side diamonds - the exact dimensions of Kardashian's ring.
The auction house could not disclose the seller's name but said it was "a gentleman."
"It is 100 percent the same ring. Kim has been waiting for the day he would auction it. Everyone always asked what Kim did with the ring she silently gave it back over a year ago. And Kris waited until the divorce was final to sell it," a source said.
The ring is expected to fetch between $300,000 and $500,000 at the auction.
Humphries and Kardashian were married for 72-days and their divorce was finalised three months back.
