On Sunday, Feb. 21, Khloe Kardashian posted on her Instagram page a professionally shot, promotional photo of herself kneeling on a patio near a yard while wearing a black bikini top and bottoms by SKIMS and high-heeled khaki booties from her Good American brand's new shoe collection. Oh, and she is also sporting a giant diamond ring on her ring finger, which sparked fresh rumors of being engaged to longtime boyfriend Tristan Thompson. And people certainly noticed the bling right away, with many commenting on it.
Khloe included a teasing caption with the promotional post, writing, "New @goodamerican shoes are dropping 2.25."
E! host Morgan Stewart asked, "ARE THEY?" to which Khloe replied, "yep! They are!"
Khloe later commented, after fans speculated about an engagement, "My reply was to the question 'are they?' My reply is 'Yep they are'... Meaning yes the shoes are dropping on 2.25."
Tristan, 29, with whom she shares 2-year-old daughter True Thompson, commented, "WOW!!!!!!! That grass is cut to perfection."
Engagement speculation continued regardless. "Ok bling bling we see you," commented Selling Sunset star Christine Quinn, along with emojis of a diamond, a winking face and hands clapping.
Khloe's ring features a massive pear-shared diamond centered in between two smaller pavé diamonds. Shannon Delany-Ron, Director of Communications at JamesAllen.com, told E! News she estimates that the sparkler contains nine to 10 carats and costs between $500,000 and 750,000.
The reality star had showed off a similar ring, also worn on her ring finger, in Instagram photos taken at her 36th birthday party last June. However, she made no comment in response to the engagement speculation that ensued back then.
In Khloe's recent pic, her long nails bear white nail polish and square tips, a look she showcased at her birthday party. A few weeks ago, she rocked pointed, lilac-colored nails in photos taken during a family trip to Turks and Caicos to celebrate Kylie Jenner's daughter Stormi Webster's third birthday.
"Khloe knows the value of siblings and growing up in a house full of kids and she wants that for True," a source told E! News last month. "It's something they have been working on for a while."
