Lamar Odom may have had another tune running through his mind after deciding he was going to put a ring on it — and that would be, every kiss begins with Kay.
Odom just announced he and girlfriend Sabrina Parr are set to tie the knot after the former NBA star popped the question to the personal trainer. “Introducing my new fiancé!! Soon to be Mrs. Parr-Odom. She the ONE!!!!” Odom wrote on Instagram alongside a photo of the happy couple.
Parr also showed off the massive rock and exclaimed “I SAID YES!!!!!” while twirling her hand to show off the twinkling diamond. There have been conflicting reports about the details concerning the pear-shaped ring, but sources close to the situation tell The Blast they believe Odom skipped a custom jeweler and instead purchased the ring from retail-giant Kay Jewelers.
The bling, which appears strikingly similar to Parr’s, is 2 carats and listed as a “Pear-Shaped Diamond Engagement Ring.”
A description for the ring, from Kay Jewelers, reads:
“Boasting an impressive 2 carats in total diamond weight, this eye-catching diamond engagement ring is fahsioned in 10K white gold and features stunning round diamonds forming its pear-shaped center. Additional round diamonds halo the center and beam down the band with baguette diamonds in between. From the Now & Forever® bridal collection.”
It was originally listed for sale at $3,299.99 but is currently on sale for $2,299.99. There’s also an extended warranty for the piece available at a cost of $230.
The ring has received favorable reviews, especially from one customer who received it as an anniversary present:
“My hubby upgraded my ring for our 35th anniversary ! I saw this ring and immediately fell in love with it. It’s breathtaking! 2 carats of elegance! Thanks to Christiana Mall location I got my dream ring.! The picture doesn’t do it justice. So much bling!”
When contacted by The Blast, a rep for Kay Jewelers said, “We cannot confirm that this ring is from Kay, but we do have a ring with a similar look.” The rep also told us, “Regardless, we respect the privacy of our customers and cannot comment on their purchases.”
The ring for the future Mrs. Odom is quite different to the one he gave Khloé Kardashian when the two got engaged and married back in 2009.
Khloé’s bling was a 2.5-carat radiant-cut engagement ring worth $850,000. As for what the “KUWTK” star thinks about her ex-husband’s new engagement, Khloé is reportedly not surprised Lamar popped the question so quickly — the two of them had known each other a month before tying the knot — and wishes her former husband nothing but the best.
According to E! News, “Khloé wants Lamar to be happy. She has always had hope that he would find his way and live a long and healthy life. She’s happy for him if he has found happiness again. The chapter of her life that she shared with Lamar is closed and she has moved on. She harbors no ill will or jealousy. She wishes him nothing but the best.”
