Kanye West drops $150K (at least) in Cartier buying five bracelets for Kim

This is just an FYI from Kanye West and Kim Kardashian – they’re still rich and materialistic! Just so you know. Kim and Kanye are still in Paris, and Kim tweeted a photo of Kanye’s latest gifts:

Those are FIVE Cartier bracelets on her wrist. The Mail says they’re yellow gold and diamond Cartier bracelets including the “Love” bracelet (with pave diamonds), a $34,650 Juste Un Clou gold bangle and three gold and diamond cuffs from the Panthere collection. Kim tweeted the image with the message “The Don strikes again!!! #SoLucky!!!!!!”

So… yeah. I know I should be railing against materialism and all of that, but I just can’t right now because I’m super-jealous. I love the Cartier Panthere collection. I love those diamond-encrusted panther-heads! I think they’re so, so pretty. And unlike Jay-Z and Beyonce’s conspicuous consumption, this doesn’t feel like a ridiculously expensive gift that will go to waste, like Jay’s million-dollar basement suite or Blue Ivy’s sapphire-encrusted binkie. Kim will actually wear and enjoy these Cartier bracelets and she has every right to show them off. If a dude gave me a Cartier bracelet, I would show it off! Damn. Kanye easily dropped about $150,000 (probably much more) on those bracelets.

Also – while in Paris, Kim went on a Twitter rampage about the allegations that her mom beat the hell out of her. Kim says it’s false and that her father’s ex-wife is just selling dumb stories for a profit.

    So gaudy! But each to their own, I guess. Also: a red knit balaclava??

  2. Suzanne says:

    Is the Kardashian game…to see which sister can get the richest black man to impregnate them…and buy them every material thing the world has to offer? Gosh…these people are NEVER going away..are they? Every time she passes gas…it makes headlines!

  3. marie says:

    are you a closet Kardashian fan Kaiser? Is it because you have ‘K’ in common? ha, kidding. I’m not a fan of gold but if the bracelets were silver then that would be a different story..

  4. Joanna says:

    dang, i wish i had a guy that could buy me expensive stuff like that.

  5. irishserra says:

    That’s sweet, I guess, if that’s your thing.

    Now when that baby comes, will he change diapers and get up in the middle of the night? Now that’s sexy… but I suppose those mundane tasks will be left to some paid nanny.

  6. Camille says:

    Thank you Kimye for supporting Europe’s economy.

  7. Viv says:

    Wow, she actually managed to make Cartier bracelets look cheap by picking the largest and gaudiest ones and piling them all on at once. Priceless.

  8. melmel says:

    I love those bracelets too but it looks so tacky wearing all of them like that.

  9. elceibeno08 says:

    The bracelets are gorgeous. Kim (for a change) looks nice in that outfit. She looks comfortable and becoming.

  10. Britt says:

    Is Kanye about to rob a bank in that balaclava?

  11. DeltaJuliet says:

    I don’t see one whit of difference between their over consumption and Beyonce/Jay-Z. To me it’s exactly the same. It’s one thing to have money and buy nice things. Whatever. But to have to constantly show it off? Pathetic, no matter who you are.

    • Nina W says:

      Not only is the over-consumption repulsive, the stuff they buy is ridiculous. If I had money like them I would not be dropping it in Cartier so that Kim can have 5 more useless baubles to choose from. Jewelry isn’t as special when it’s just meaningless, excessive loot. Now if she gave those 5 baubles to her sisters and mom or donated them to a worthy charity, I might feel differently about her.

  12. Whiskeylove says:

    Ouch! They look like they’re digging into her skin, look at those red marks!

  13. Mar says:

    Hate the whole thing and she is gross

  14. MsMileHigh says:

    Ummm… those bracelets look uncomfortable. Look at how tight they are and how scratched her arm is. That seems odd to me.

  15. Dani says:

    Is that a ski mask????

    I think she’s had the Love bracelet, all of her sisters have them, as well as the rings. I don’t think anyone can fault her on showing off – my husband got me a really expensive watch as our wedding gift and I showed it off, but I do wear it everyday. I think anyone who gets anything nice, whether it be $5000 or $500000 will show it off.

    It’s so discusting to post this kind of stuff (kimberly kuntrashian On Her Blog). Look at Me .. Look at Me … Look at Me .. HOW i’m so super lucky ! It’s so rude ! This woman is so about her self ! She put in the front of her fan How Rich she is and How Poor you are ! It’s some kind of violence in my book ! Lack of respect ! I Hate this Woman.

  17. judyjudy says:

    They always look so bored together but I see she is smiling at him in these pics. I guess we know what makes her happy (big surprise)

  18. Meg says:

    those bracelets are fugly and look like they are from the jewelry counter at Forever 21.

    Money doesn’t buy taste.

  19. Potato_Chip says:

    That’s one bracelet for each roll of flab on her abs.

  20. nikzilla37 says:

    Why is Kanye wearing that ski mask? It can’t be as cold in Paris as it is in NYC right now!

  21. Gm says:

    So she’s calling her father a liar then?

  22. bondbabe says:

    Kanye looks like he took Mushmouth’s hat and tried out the Dumb Donald style (from Fat Albert for all you youngins’).

    Don’t EVER try to emulate the Fat Albert gang’s style.

  23. dagdag says:

    A true philistine at her best.

  24. Skeksis says:

    I don’t know, I’m not sure it’s so materialistic. I mean, I buy (costume) jewelry and clothes when I have money to spend. Granted, it’s not worth the kind of money Kimye spend, but it’s as unnecessary a purchase. So, I guess, if it is materialistic of them, I’m not sure they’re so much worse than I am.

    And that panther head is amazing.

  25. sweetshell says:

    Those bracelets sure don’t look like they are worth $150,000. They look more like costume jewelery. Oh, and what the…is Kanye wearing on his head? It looks like he cut the hole out (with all the fragmented thread). Maybe I’m behind the times and that’s what is in style.

  26. Kapowski says:

    Her boobs are so far down, when did that happen?

  27. Jay says:

    the white top makes her breasts looks droppy

  28. Luxe says:

    That mask of makeup on her face in the last pic is so….ugh.

  29. Bilinga says:

    Oh God, how FUGLY…now he’ll tell her which ones to wear with whatever ugly clothes he has her dressed in, YUCK!

  30. Jane says:

    What is with her wearing clothes that are two sizes two small for her?
