The 20.5-carat diamond on Kim Kardashian's new engagement ring may turn heads, but it's the two Bible verses inscribed inside that moves hearts.
“It’s engraved, with two things from the Bible,” fiance Kris Humphries told People magazine.
“There’s one verse [Proverbs 31: 10-31] about the perfect godly woman," he said. "The other [1 John 3:18] is about love. It took me . . . a few days to pick them out and research the perfect ones.”
Humphries, whose name shares the first initial as his wife-to-be, also etched a third message on the $2 million sparkler, reading "K ♥ K."
1 John 3:18 (NIV) reads, "Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth."
Proverbs 31 (NIV) reads in part, "Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised."
Humphries recently proposed to Kardashian on May 18 after 7 months of dating. According to People, the NBA player spelled out, "Will you marry me?" in rose petals in her bedroom, while waiting on bended knee.
In a new interview with PR.com, Kim Kardashian also shares that fiancé Humphries is Christian and that Christianity is a big part of her life.
If her dad Robert Kardashian were still alive, he would "love" Humphries, Kim told PR.com in an interview published Thursday.
"Oh, I think he would absolutely love [Kris], because he’s just really funny and just a good person, and you can tell. And the fact that he’s a Christian, I think that he would just really, really like him," said the star of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians."
"Is Christianity a big part of your life?" asked the PR.com.
"Absolutely!" replied Kim.
When the reporter for PR.com observed that her faith is not something that’s ever covered on the show, Kim said the family doesn't "show every detail of our lives."
"I think that’s the beauty of our show, that we might be perceived to show everything on camera, but there is so much that’s just really close to us and private. My mom opened up her own church, but she doesn’t broadcast that all the time just because of certain things,” said Kardashian. “There’s a ton that… well, people don’t know everything about us."
Speaking to CNN's Piers Morgan earlier this year, Kim said she always gives away 10 percent of her earnings to her church.
"Whatever it is, I give 10 percent away to the church and that's what I was taught. Every year, absolutely."
During the Piers Morgan interview, she also said she given millions of her money to the Dream Foundation, as well as funding the church her mother created in Calabasas, Calif.
On Wednesday, Kim Kardashian took a break from celebrating her new engagement to clear up pregnancy rumors that were sparked by a cover on OK! Magazine.
"This is crazy! I am NOT pregnant! Magazines can be so tricky with their wording! The inside states that one day I want a baby! But I’m not pregnant!" Kim insisted on her personal website on Celebuzz.
"I can foresee lots of crazy, made up stories coming out in the near future and I certainly don’t have time to shut down every rumor. But believe that if you hear it from me, it will be true. Otherwise, don’t always believe what you read, dolls."
