Kimye marks a third year of holy matrimony today, which raises the question of what kind of gifts Kanye West is planning to give Kim Kardashian. Even though Kim has revealed that she doesn't know if she'll ever wear jewelry in public ever again following her October robbery in Paris, the private pressure is still probably on Kanye to give her something over-the-top to continue his tradition of spoiling her beyond imagination. But how will he top these glittering, luxurious, and fragrant missives of love?
Cartier Panthère Bracelet ($35,000)
After going public with their romance in April 2012 (seven months after Kim filed for divorce from Kris Humphries), Kanye gave Kim the first of many years of extravagant gifts: a yellow gold, garnet, and onyx Cartier Panthère bracelet, followed by her first custom made Balmain dress, an electric blue number that designer Olivier Rousteing later admitted to Harper's Bazaar that Kim wore the night her daughter North was conceived. Rawr!
Even More Cartier Bracelets ($65,000+)
A gal can never have too much Cartier, right? "The Don strikes again!!! #SoLucky!!!!!!" Kim captioned a 2013 Instagram picture of her gilded wrist, adorned with five new Cartier bracelets, including another from the Panthère collection and a pavé diamond Love bracelet. E! speculated at the time that these could have been push presents for delivering North — except North wasn't actually born yet.
And Yet Still Another Cartier Panthère Bracelet ($73,000)
The Don wasn't even done with his Cartier spree, though — a month later (and four months before North made her debut), she had yet another new pet panther, this time for Valentine's Day. The biggest cat in her collection features diamonds, emeralds, and onyx.
Hand-Painted Hermès Birkin Bags (up to $100,000)
Kanye has given Kim at least two hand-painted Birkins, the perpetually wait-listed luxury bags by Hermès: one by the artist George Condo (given for Christmas in 2013) and one by her little artist-in-residence, North, in 2014, when she was just two-years-old. The prices of the bags vary widely but Elle estimated that these ones could be up to $100,000.
Wall of White Flowers ($136,000)
Elle also estimated that Kanye's Mother's Day 2014 gift, a wall of roses, hydrangeas, and peonies, cost well into six figures.
A Wall of Flowers, Part 2 (Priceless)Kanye arranged for a wall of orchids and roses to be erected in their hotel room when the pair celebrated Valentine's Day in NYC this year. While accurate estimates of the cost have eluded the public, it cost at least a pretty penny.
Lorraine Schwartz Diamond Choker ($1,000,000)
Ask and Ye shall retrieive? After Kim asked her hubby for a million-dollar Lorraine Schwartz diamond choker as a push present for her son Saint, she turned up wearing it to a friend's wedding in Miami. Now that's efficient.
20-Carat Diamond Ring ($10,000,000)
Kanye was feeling like her 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring was too teeny tiny, so he gave her a 20-carat Lorraine sparkler (estimated at $10 million, above) in 2016, which she wore to the MTV Video Music Awards. How is he gonna top that?
