A diamond ring spotted on (technically still-married) Kim Kardashian's pinky finger has sparked rumors about whether she and Kanye West might be engaged, reports the Huffington Post.

Who knows whether it's true, but we're not sure why they would keep it a secret -- it's not as if these two have a problem being in the media spotlight.

For weeks we've been hearing rumors that Kardashian and West were planning to marry, and Ryan Seacrest recently even admitted that he thinks an engagement announcement is in the couple's near future.

So when the 32-year-old reality star was spotted leaving a Christian Louboutin boutique in Miami Beach on Wednesday wearing an enormous sparkler on her pinky finger, naturally we all wondered if that ring came from Kanye getting down on one knee and proposing. With all his talk of white dresses, why would anyone think otherwise? And given that Kardashian is in the middle of a bitter divorce from Kris Humphries, perhaps she chose to wear the ring on her pinky so as not to rub her new love in Humphries' face.

While it's possible, that's not the case according to a source for E! News, who says the couple is not engaged.
