CLAIM: Kim Kardashian to Wear “Decoy” of $2 Million Engagement Ring

Truth rating: 0

Kim Kardashian Commissions ‘Decoy’ Engagement Ring,” reads the headline of a RadarOnline story.

According to the blog, Kardashian loves her estimated $2 million, 20.5 carat engagement ring from Kris Humphries “so much so that she never wants to take it off, but at the same time she worries about something happening to her most precious possession.”

That’s why, reports RadarOnline, she’s “commissioned a top jeweler to make her a ‘decoy’ ring — an exact replica but with a cubic zirconia instead of a diamond!”

“It’s going to be perfect and really difficult to detect that it’s a fake to the untrained eye,” claims a RadarOnline source, who adds, “She will wear the real thing when she goes to special events or when she feels comfortable, but when she’s just tooling around she can wear her ‘decoy.'”

Actually the only thing that’s fake is RadarOnline’s report.

A source close to Kardashian tells Gossip Cop the “decoy” ring story is “not true.”

Like costume jewelry, the blog’s tale is equally worthless.
