Why is Kim Kardashian West’s stolen ring making headlines today? Maybe because it is worth about 4 mln euros.

According to police, the ring was taken along with a box filled with jewelry, the combined value amounting to about 5 mln euros and two phones.

“Five attackers struck around 1am GMT wearing ski masks and jackets with police signs. Kardashian had been locked in the bathroom and tied up [and] the men stole a jewelry box with five to six million euros worth of jewels and a ring worth about four million euros,” a police source in Paris confirmed with Reuters.

While it remains unclear what jewelry items have been stolen, all fingers pointed to the ring that was spotted on Kim K this summer which was gifted to her by husband Kanye West.

She recently posted a photo of herself with the ring on Instagram. She was also spotted wearing it recently when she attended Paris Fashion week.

Her ring which is from the Lorraine Schwartz creation, boasts an emerald-cut center stone that's Type IIa which is the most valued and purest type of diamond. This rare diamond is special since only two percent of these gems are of this quality, and of that size.
