The Kourtney Kardashian engagement ring is just as stunning as the woman herself. We’re so happy to get a chance to look into the ring she received, discuss her new fiancé, and generally congratulate her on her impending nuptials.

Who Is Kourtney Kardashian Engaged To?

Kourtney Kardashian was recently engaged to Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker. This is not either person’s first marriage. Kourtney’s relationship with Scott Disick, which officially ended in 2015 with three children between them, had her moving on to better things with her Calabasas neighbor, now fiancé. Travis’s marriages with Melissa Kennedy and with Shanna Moakler both ended, his second marriage producing two children. Kourtney and Travis will be creating a blended family with their children from previous relationships and hopefully entering into a new type of union that neither has experienced before.

Travis Barker, Meet The Kardashians

Travis Barker is about to join a family known for its glamour, fashion, and taste in remarkable men. The Kardashian family philosophy seems to be to never settle for less. Both of Kourtney’s sisters, Kim Kardashian and Kylie Jenner, have married famous artists and received gorgeous diamond rings as well. By marrying Kourtney, Barker places himself among artists like Kanye West, Lamar Odom, and Travis Scott. When Travis Barker got down on one knee and popped the question, he must have known everyone would compare the engagement ring he chose to rings Kanye West has purchased for Kim Kardashian, and it appears Travis was ready to play ball!

An insider told Showbiz Cheatsheet that Kourtney and Travis began dating officially around January 2021. As of April 2022, they have been romantically involved for over a year. They may have started dating earlier than this, but there is no sourcing for earlier dates. Travis and Kim had been longtime friends, having met when Kim Kardashian was in the early moments of her career assisting Paris Hilton, so while their engagement came quickly, it is by no means a surprise. While Travis met the Kardashians star first, he built a wonderful romance, as well as friendship, when Kim Kardashian West, Kourtney’s sister, introduced the couple.

How Did Travis Barker Propose?

Sources say that Travis proposed on the beach at a hotel in Montecito, California, surrounded by roses and candles. In true Kardashian fashion, Kourtney Kardashian’s engagement ring winks and shines in a social media post on the day of the proposal.

The Blink-182 drummer made sure their Sunday night surrounded by red roses and candles was the perfect engagement dinner. Travis knew what he was doing when he popped the question, as he made sure his beach proposal for Kourtney included time for social media announcements as well.

Kourtney fulfilled our #kravis dreams by posting a beautiful beach proposal picture surrounded by red roses, with her and her new fiancé close up and personal. Travis clearly nailed his proposal.

Kourtney and Travis’s Midnight Wedding

Kourtney Kardashian and Travis Barker shocked fans around the world by getting married in an unexpected way. Kardashian fans might be used to the famous family’s extravagant weddings, but Kourtney switched it up.

Kourtney and her now-husband Travis Barker tied the knot at the One Love Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas after the 2022 Grammys. The couple said “I Do” at 1:45 AM on Monday, April 5, apparently wearing the same clothes they wore to the Grammys ceremony earlier that evening.

However, a Page Six source said that their wedding was not legally binding. It sounds like Kardashian followers can expect lots of wedding celebrations to come for these two lovebirds.

What does Kourtney Kardashian’s Engagement Ring Look Like?

Kourtney’s engagement ring costs around 1 million dollars. The critical element is a substantial oval-shaped center diamond. The ring has an estimated 15 carat or larger oval diamond in the center, a thin pavé encrusted band, and a possible hidden halo setting. It is a gorgeous oval diamond solitaire from afar that balances out the large diamond with a miraculously dainty setting.

What Does This Mean for Engagement Ring Fashion?

People often look to big celebrity engagements for style inspiration. Whether it is a proposal location or a diamond cut, celebrity engagements are a great way to see something new in the wedding world.

Special at First Glimpse: A Fancy Shaped Diamond

We have a feeling that Kourtney’s gorgeous ring is just the first of its kind that we will see. Fancy-shaped diamonds continue to get more popular each year. Many prefer oval diamonds due to their lower price compared to round options, more prominent appearance, and unique shape. Above is our Arielle Ring with Diamond Band, one of our favorite settings for an oval diamond.

They Just Keep Getting Thinner and Thinner: Thin Band Rings

Delicate bands seem to be the next big thing. More and more people seek out thin bands for their rings because they accent their larger diamond well. People are moving towards more delicate bands for comfort, style, and ease, whether halo, solitaire, vintage, or three-stone. Above is our Quiet Beauty Emerald Cut Ring. This ring is one of our thin band rings so that you can explore the look yourself.

Ready For Our Closeup: Pavé Bands

Everyone loves some extra glitter, and there are plenty of ways to get it in your ring. The most common and comfortable way to do it is to lay pavé diamonds into the metal of your ring. While they can be more fragile and require some care, the extra bling on your ring can be very worth it and tends to be a lovely accent to the center diamond. Above our Grand Delicate Halo Ring, we included one of our favorite examples of what some pavé diamonds can do for you in terms of significant sparkle.
