If you could pick one person in the world to give you a present, I think Kris Jenner should be high on your list. After all, the Kardashian-Jenner matriarch has an epic closet 62 years in the making, where designer handbags are displayed like prized museum pieces. This is a woman who proudly showed off the “Rich as Fuck” Goyard suitcase she got for Christmas. So she knows a thing or two about luxurious, high-end goods—and how to give them.
But not all of her gifts are store bought. In fact, Jenner tells Glamour exclusively about a sentimental family heirloom she gave her daughter Khloé Kardashian. It was a present to celebrate the birth of Kardashian’s first child, True Thompson—one that Jenner had been saving especially for her third daughter.
“On the day Khloé was born, her father gave me three beautiful gold bracelets with diamonds,” she says. “I held onto them for 34 years waiting for the moment I could give them to Khloé when she had her first child.”
“To be able to give Khloé a piece of diamond jewelry that her father chose on the day she was born was incredibly special, and was a really emotional moment for us both,” Jenner continues. “I hope she will save the bracelets and pass down to True when she has children.”
Kardashian’s reaction to the gift was just as heartfelt as you’d expect, Jenner says: “Khloé had no idea. Seeing the jewelry on her for the first time was very emotional—we both cried.”
“I love jewelry, especially diamonds,” Jenner explains. “All of my diamond pieces have significant meaning and reflect important moments in my life. I plan to one day pass them down to my children. Since my diamond pieces all have such significant meaning individually, I hope to pass down jewelry that would hold the same importance to that family member just like the bracelets I gave to Khloé.” One day, she adds, she’ll have something “very special” to give granddaughter True.
One thing True can count on for gifts? The chance to shop Jenner’s closet on special occasions.
“My grandchildren love to come over and go through my closet—every year I let them all choose something for their birthdays or Christmas that they love,” Jenner tells us. “Penelope and North always go for the Judith Leiber bags…smart girls!”
