As well as being left 'badly shaken' by the shocking robbery in her Paris lodgings last night, Kim Kardashian may have had a dazzling ring worth £3.5million ($6m) stolen from her.

The reality star is believed to have been robbed of £8.5million ($15m) of jewellery including the sparkler which was her second engagement ring designed by her husband Kanye West.

Kanye gifted his wife with the ring just last month and she hasn't stopped flashing it on social media since.



Whilst the exact pieces that were taken haven't been confirmed, Kim had been wearing the eye-catching 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz engagement ring in her pictures, as well as during her outings in Paris.

She was seen wearing the ring in the last Snapchat she posted late on Sunday night whilst she was Facetiming her future sister-in-law, Blac Chyna, at her baby shower just two hours before the incident. She was also wearing the dazzler hours earlier as she and sister Kourtney arrived at the Alaia showroom.

The men stole a jewellery box worth €6 million and a ring worth €4 million, police said.

The rock is the second one her husband gave her after the original engagement band he gave her back in 2013.

The huge rock features a 20-carat emerald-cut centre stone and may well be the ring worth €4 million that police said had been taken.

The ring is thought to be even more impressive that the first giant 15-carat sparkler from Lorraine Schwartz, which he used to propose to Kim Kardashian in 2013 and is thought to be worth upwards of £1.24 million.

Kim also owns a wedding band by Lorraine Schwartz, which Kanye apparently designed for his wife to match her engagement ring.

Whilst a price was never revealed, it is thought to be in the region of £3.1 million.

She was also wearing grillz by Dolly Cohen in one of her Snapchat stories.

Cohen, who has also designed pieces for Rihanna and Cara Delevingne, uses 18K gold only in either yellow or white.

"Each piece has a price," she told Vogue.com in 2014. "It could go from €200 ($310) or more. Once I create a piece, I never do it again."

Cohen's cheaper pieces are those made from gold but Kim's grillz appear to be adorned in diamonds, undoubtedly making the piece more expensive.

Other pieces she was seen sporting include several long gold necklaces from her husband Kanye West's upcoming jewellery collaboration.

Kanye is releasing the line with celebrity-loved designer, Jacob Arabo.

Kanye told Vogue that the collection is "a letter to my wife from a past life that can live past our lives." Kim also wore the necklaces at the MTV Video Music Awards.

Whilst prices for the collection haven't been released, Arabo's pieces can cost several thousands of pounds and prices for his pieces have to be requested.

Jacob Arabo, 51, who is based in Manhattan, is loved by the celebrity and fashion world despite his eye-watering price tags, including one ring worth £11 million.

Jennifer Lopez, Jennifer Lawrence and Rihanna have all been seen in his jewellery which ranges from £4300 to millions of pounds.

The jeweller is name-checked by rappers in a total of 68 songs with Pharrell Williams and Jay Z among the stars who favour his bling. Missy Elliot famously rapped that she had "so much ice, I even scare Jacob."

He is most famous for his watches, one of which took two years to make and is made from 239 diamonds and weighing 260 carats overall and is even wound with a two-carat diamond.

His Five Time Zone watch is a classic worn by many male celebrities like Leonardo Di Caprio and Bono, while Elton John once bought 22 to give away as presents - with the price ranging from £4,300 to £600,000.

Kim was also seen at arriving at Kinu Restaurant in Paris on Saturday with Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian and Corey Gamble wearing a black necklace.

The delicate piece is believed to be Givenchy as she wore it to the designer's show earlier in the evening teamed with a full outfit by Riccardo Tisci. Similar necklaces from his range cost around £500.

It is likely that Kim had plenty of other pieces in her numerous suitcases she was seen arriving in Paris with.

The incident occurred in Paris on Monday at around 2.30am, when the masked robbers, dressed as policemen, are believed to have entered the building and handcuffed the night guard. They then entered Kim's room, "tied her up and locked her in the bathroom".


The mother-of-two, who is in the city for Paris Fashion Week, is "badly shaken but physically unharmed", a spokeswoman said.

Husband Kanye was told of the raid halfway through a headline performance at the Meadow Music and Art Festival, New York, and immediately cancelled the set.

Their daughter, North, three, and 10-month-old son Saint, are not believed to have been in the room at the time.

A photographer, who has been following Kim since she arrived in Paris, is being questioned by police. He is said to have gained access to a restaurant where she and her family were dining earlier this week by posing as a policeman.

At around 4.30am Kendall Jenner was seen leaving the apartment under police protection. Model Jasmine Sanders, wearing a Kanye West T-shirt, and actor Terrence J accompanied her.

Meanwhile, Kim and her sister Kourtney have flown home to the US after the shocking incident.

Kim has been enjoying the festivities during Paris Fashion Week with older sister Kourtney and mother Kim as she has been spotted front row at runways shows including Balenciaga, Givenchy and Balmain.
