Bound 4 life! Kim Kardashian and Kanye West exchanged custom-designed wedding bands by Lorraine Schwartz during their May 24 ceremony. The newlywed couple, who married at the Forte di Belvedere in Florence, Italy, called upon the celeb-beloved jewelry designer and their close pal to create the symbols of eternal love.
For her trek down the aisle, Kardashian accessorized her Givenchy Haute Couture bridal gown (and later, her second dress of the evening!) with diamond studs and her engagement bling by Schwartz. At the altar, West placed a diamond band on his new wife’s left ring finger.
The piece itself should perfectly complement Kardashian’s large engagement ring from West. As previously reported, the Yeezus rapper was hands-on throughout the selection process of Kardashian’s sparkler ahead of his October 2013 proposal in San Francisco.
At the time, the designer’s rep told Us that West “wanted a perfect stone” for his future bride. “He wanted it to look like the diamond was floating on Kim’s finger!” the rep said. “Lorraine was happy that Kanye asked her to create the ring with him. Kim and Lorraine are dear friends. Kanye was very involved with the design and the whole process.”
The jeweler’s work with the couple and the Kardashian family has been extensive in recent months. Schwartz accessorized Khloe for the couple’s pre-wedding brunch at the Valentino castle last week. She also provided bling for Kim at the 2014 Met Gala in NYC.
For West in his first-ever marriage, Schwartz created a gold band. The rapper—excited to marry his “muse” in the months leading up to their nuptials—largely planned his wedding alongside celebrity event planner Sharon Sacks.
“[The ceremony] was beautiful,” one observer told Us. “Absolutely magnificent.”
