Go big or go home!

When Kris Humphries proposed to Kim Kardashian, he offered a staggeringly huge ring fit for a queen: a platinum engagement ring by Lorraine Schwartz. The reality star debuted the rock while she and her NBA beau, 26, hit LAX on Wednesday for a flight out of the country. (Check out more pix of her ring-reveal at Bauer-Griffin's blog.) The mega-bling features a 16.5-carat emerald cut center stone, flanked by a pair of 2-carat trapezoids -- totaling 20.5 carats!

Like the 30-year-old reality star wearing it, the ring is a true original, jewelry expert Michael O'Connor tells Us Weekly. "The emerald cut center is a classic cut, but the trapezoids modernize the style," O'Connor says. "Since the center diamond is rectangular shaped, it elongates Kim’s hand, making the ring look even more elegant."

Adds O'Connor of famed jeweler Schwartz, who has been designing baubles for Kardashian for years: "Lorraine Schwartz is known for excellent quality diamonds."

One expert from the Diamond Information Center estimates the huge rock at "at least" a million dollars.
