Although it was Kanye West who debuted a new music video for his single "Fade" at Sunday night’s 2016 Music Video Awards, it was his wife, Kim Kardashian West, who had a buzzworthy (and sparkly!) surprise—and it's a surprise that escaped us at first.


The reality star hit the carpet rocking her signature bombshell look: She flaunted her curves in a black long-sleeve sheer dress and opted for a more natural, bronzed beauty look. But if you happened to find yourself scratching your head thinking, "Is Kim K's engagement ring extra sparkly tonight?" then you were onto something.

According to a People source, "Kanye surprised her with a new ring. Kim couldn't believe it. It's even more stunning than her engagement ring if that's possible."


The new diamond ring, though quite similar to the 15-carat, cushion-cut engagement ring Kanye proposed with, is actually bigger (yep, seriously!) and boasts a dazzling emerald-cut diamond with a super-skinny band glittering with pavé diamonds. For comparison, here's a photo of her original diamond, below.

When it comes to extravagant gifts, there's one thing for sure—the Wests really know how to deliver.
