It turns out Lala Kent’s engagement ring from Randall Emmett was all smoke and mirrors, much like their relationship.
On Wednesday, the Vanderpump Rules star claimed that her engagement ring was “fake” and originally had a “s–t brown” diamond.
On her “Give Them Lala” podcast, Lala said through tears that, on the “daily,” she’s finding out new secrets about her ex that are like “a punch in the gut.”
She recently discovered that the 6-carat round-cut diamond engagement ring that she received from Randall in 2018 wasn’t as high quality as she initially believed it to be.
The reality TV star recalled hearing Randall tell her mom about “how some rappers take s–tty diamonds and make them pretty.”
This tidbit sparked Lala’s curiosity, so after her split with Randall in October, Lala took the ring to a “highly recommended” jeweler, which is when she discovered the diamond had been “treated by one or more processes to change its color.”
The jeweler explained that the diamond “was most likely brown” before the treatment and that it would only be worth “in the teens” rather than the hundreds of thousands it was alleged to be worth.
The original ring designer Richie Rich previously claimed to Page Six that the diamond was worth $150,000, so Lala went straight to the source to find out answers.
Lala said Rich was “a little stressed out,” but finally admitted, “[Randall] knew exactly what he was buying. He knew the diamond he was getting.”
“I love any type of ring that is given and has sentimental value. I don’t care if it was $100, I don’t care if it was $100 million — I don’t,” Lala said on her podcast. “No wonder he whose name we shall not mention flew in four times; he had to make sure the s–t brown diamond was clear!”
Lala has no plans to keep the ring but says, “If I’m allowed to get rid of it, that’s what I want to do. I don’t want it in a pendant. I don’t want this thing in my home. It’s bad ju-ju.”
When it comes to the news about her engagement ring, Lala said it was unsurprising and made her “laugh hysterically.”
“There’s not one piece of my five years with this person that has been truthful and honest,” she confessed.
“The only truth I feel that existed in my relationship was me and my daughter, Ocean. That is where the truth ended,” she added. “That is a hard pill to f–king swallow.”
Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
