Kim Kardashian is an engaged woman once again, and once again the giant diamond ring is by Lorraine Schwartz.
Kanye West finally popped the question to Kimmy on Monday night at San Francisco's AT&T Park (yep, he used the Jumbotron and everything) with a 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz stunner. The only view we've gotten of the mega ring is via Instagram, meaning it's hard to see clearly. But one thing we know for sure: Kim downsized from her previous engagement ring.
Back in 2012, Kris Humphries proposed to Kim with a 20.5-carat Lorraine Schwartz ring, comprised of a 16.21-carat rectangular-cut center stone with two 1.8-carat trapezoid stones on each side. It reportedly cost Humphries $2 million, although he supposedly got a major discount.
We all know how Kim's marriage to Kris ended (that $2 million ring sold at Christie's for $620,000 just last week) -- does anyone think it might be a bad omen to go with another Lorraine Schwartz sparkler?
At least it's fractionally smaller. It couldn't really have gotten any bigger.
Check out the rings. Which strikes your fancy most?

How big is TOO big?
Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger proposed to fellow Canadian Avril Lavigne in August with a gargantuan 14 carat pear-shaped rock. We want to know: can she even put her hand in her pocket with that thing on?!
"Jersey Shore" star Jenni "JWoww" Farley got engaged to her boyfriend of two-and-a-half years, Roger Matthews, in September. Matthews popped the question while the pair were skydiving, and presented JWoww with a five carat cushion-cut diamond, surrounded by pink and white diamonds. We have to say we're not surprised by the over-the-top choice in this case.
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds tied the knot in a secret ceremony in September, but they couldn't keep their union under wraps for long -- Lively's engagement ring is massive. Jewelers guess that the center stone is 10 carats.
Justin Theroux proposed to Jennifer Aniston in August on his 41st birthday while the pair were out to dinner in Manhattan. Aniston kept the ring hidden for nearly two months following the engagement -- perhaps because she thought we'd judge her for it. And we are. At an estimated 10 carats, the ring is so enormous we're surprised she kept it hidden so long.
An article about over-the-top engagement rings wouldn't be complete without a mention of Kim Kardashian. The reality star's famously gigantic bauble from estranged husband Kris Humphries was a whopping 20.5 carats in total -- more than many of these other ladies' massive rings put together.
Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake tied the knot in a lavish Italian wedding in October. But after their engagement in 2011, the star waited months to show off her colossal rock . We're glad the pair settled on much more modest wedding bands.
CORRECTION: This post previously stated that Kim's marriage to Kris Humphries was her first. Kim was in fact married to music producer Damon Thomas prior to her marriage to Humphries.
