Call it a bling gaffe.
Kourtney Kardashian revealed on Thursday’s episode of Hulu’s “The Kardashians” that she stepped on – and broke – her estimated $1 million engagement ring from fiancé Travis Barker.
Kris Jenner noticed Kourtney wasn’t wearing her massive Lorraine Schwartz sparkler in a new episode and inquired as to why it was missing.
“It’s being worked on,” Kourtney, 43, said.
“I was sitting on my floor folding sweatshirts,” she continued, describing the inciting incident as “probably one of the worst things I’ve ever done in my entire life.” I took the ring off and placed it on the floor next to me, thinking it would be safe right next to me.”
Unfortunately, it wasn’t the case.
“I needed to get something from my closet above, and when I stepped down, I stepped on the ring.” I was crying uncontrollably in my closet for hours before calling Travis. ‘I did something bad,’ I thought.

Travis, 46, handled it well, according to his fiancée, who said he “handled it the best.”
“I had a nervous breakdown,” the Poosh founder recalled. “I was just like, this is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen, and how could I have done it?”
Lorraine Schwartz told People that the Blink-182 drummer “was hands-on” and played a “really big part” in the design of Kourtney’s ring, which made the reality star feel even worse about her (literal) blunder.
In April 2022, the couple married (without a license) in Las Vegas.
“Travis chose it, designed it, looked at so many stones, and this was me in a stone, and I thought that was special,” she said on the show.
The oval-cut rock on a pavé diamond band was presented to his lady love in October 2021, when he proposed on the beach in Montecito, Calif., surrounded by roses and candles.
The repairs appear to have been successful, as Kourtney was seen wearing her ring at this year’s Oscars, Grammys, and Met Gala — all of which she attended with Travis by her side.
