“Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kim Zolciak is known for her potty mouth, lavish taste, blonde wigs and disdain for most social norms. “The Ring Don’t Mean a Thing” singer made headlines in 2011 when she tweeted a picture of the 10-carat engagement ring given to her by Atlanta Falcon star Kroy Biermann. The NFL star showed his enduring love for Zolciak with a massive, diamond rock that set Twitter afire.
The 10-carat stunner accomplished the rare feat of standing out in a year dominated by bling. Zolicak’s ring features a cushion-cut center diamond encircled by a halo of white diamonds. The oversized stone rests atop a shimmering platinum band that is encrusted with dozens of small diamonds.
The striking ring suits Zolciak’s outlandish persona and complements her fondness for gaudy pieces. And, it is more restrained than the 20.5-carat sparkler that Kim Kardashian received ahead of her 72-day marriage to NBA star Kris Humprhies.
Zolciak’s engagement ring made its national television debut during a March episode of the wildly popular “Real Housewives of Atlanta” series. It was also the subject of debate during a heated exchange with fellow Atlanta housewife Marlo Hampton, on the series’ no-holds-barred, three-part reunion special.
Kim Zolciak is currently starring in the reality TV spin-off “Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding” on the Bravo network. The show chronicles the planning for her larger-than-life wedding, and is scheduled to end with a fairytale ceremony so garish and over-t
