Kanye West is said to be using his late mother’s jewels to create an engagement ring for his girlfriend Kim Kardashian.
According to Radar Online, the rapper has been working with a private jeweler to create a custom-made ring he’ll use to propose, the Daily Telegraph reported.
West had a close relationship with his mother Donda and bought her many expensive jewels before she died in 2007.
He wants these made into a ring he can give to the new number one woman in his life.
“Kanye picked out some of Donda’s most expensive pieces, including some diamond earrings and a ruby ring,” a source close to West told the website.
“He then gave them to a private jeweler friend to make Kim a one-of-a-kind engagement ring,” the source added.
The 31-year-old reality is currently embroiled in divorce proceedings with Kris Humphries following their whirlwind marriage of just 72 days.
West, 35, will pop the question as soon as Kardashian is free of her ties to Humphries, as he is eager to share his life with her.
