As Kim Kardashian nears the end of her pregnancy, the expectant mom is starting to think about the precious gift she’ll get at the end of these nine months — a new baby, sure, but also, she hopes, a push present.
In the latest blog post on her website, Kardashian explains that she loves the idea of push presents — the gifts some mothers get from their partners after giving birth. “After nine months of pregnancy, it’s a sweet and well-deserved thank you,” writes Kardashian, who is reportedly due in December (though recent reports say she may get induced as soon as Thanksgiving). “We women go through an entire pregnancy carrying a baby. … Of course it only makes sense that we get something amazing to show how amazing we are!”
This year, Kardashian admits she’s got her eye on a rather extravagant gift. “This pregnancy, I would love a Lorraine Schwartz diamond choker, like the ones I’ve worn before to the Art + Film Gala,” she writes, acknowledging that perhaps the request is over the top. “Too much? LOL!”

Jewelry and style expert Michael O’Connor tells Yahoo Parenting that a necklace like the one Kim is coveting can run up to $1 million. “It really depends a lot on what the metal is, how many diamonds, the total carat weight,” O’Connor says. The two chokers Kardashian wore to the Art + Film Galas likely cost between $500,000 and $750,000, he says. “But Lorraine Schwartz uses very high-quality diamonds, and if there were diamonds going all the way around the necklace and the diamonds were large enough on the one she got for a push present, it could go up to a million.”
Should Kardashian’s husband, Kanye West, splurge on the necklace, it wouldn’t be the first fabulous push present he’s bought his wife. In 2013, West gave Kardashian her present early. Baby North wasn’t born until June, but in January of that year, Kardashian posted a picture of a wrist full of Cartier bling. The push present, five gold bracelets, reportedly cost $65,000.

In her recent blog post, Kardashian also featured push present ideas at various price points, ranging from a $78 Guess choker to a diamond one that costs $2,600 from Gabriela Artigas. Other great jewelry options, Kardashian says, include an initial pendant (she suggests an $1,800 style from Jennifer Meyer) and a bezel set diamond set ring ($815 from Anne Sisteron).
While the Lorraine Schwartz choker may seem extravagant, one thing to keep in mind: The Kardashian-West couple has a reported net worth of about $215 million. So while the soon-to-be mom of two may have been laughing out loud at her extravagant wish list, Dad may well be honoring her request when little boy West comes along.
