We're sure you've heard that this week Kanye West proposed to Kim Kardashian in one of the most lavish proposals of all time, as he rented San Francisco's AT&T Park for the evening (as you do) to get down on one knee. It didn't take long for a glitzy hand selfie to appear on Kim's Instagram page, but now the ring has made it's first public outting.

Last night Kimye made their first red carpet appearance since the engagement at Gelila And Wolfgang Puck's Dream For Future Africa Foundation Gala. Kim kept running her fingers through her hair - a not so subtle maneuver to flash the bling. The novelty of having a flawless 15-carat Lorraine Schwartz sparkler on her finger hasn't worn off yet. But we're not sure you can ever get used to having over a million pounds on your hand.

Inside the event Italian Vogue's editor Franca Sozzani took Kim's hand to inspect the diamond. By the size of her toothy grin we think the diamond gets the Italian Vogue stamp of approval. This Kardashian has been well and truly initiated into the fashion fold, as she hung out with Carine Roitfeld and Riccardo Tisci in Paris Fashion Week and was photographed by fashion's fairy godfather Karl Lagerfeld. Kim and Franca go way back, as she posed in July-August issue of L'Uomo Vogue in a Kris Jenner style wig, running away from the paparazzi.

In case you haven't heard about how Kanye popped the question, let us fill you in. Kanye proposed at his rented stadium in front of a giant sign which read "PLEEEASE MARRY MEEE!!!" It was all very romantic, as there was a 50-piece orchestra which played Lana Del Rey's "Young and Beautiful," followed by Keri Hilson, Ne-Yo and Kanye's "Knock You Down." There were also fireworks and roman candles, plus the whole Kardashian family (minus North) hiding in the dugouts. Sounds like a Keeping Up With The Kardashians special to us, but for now you can watch the proposal here.

So how does Kim's bling compare to other celebrity engagement rings? Take a look through the gallery below, but be warned, there is a lotta lotta sparkle...
