Kim Kardashian has made a big hint that she is in a relationship with Kanye West through her choice of gold earrings.

The reality TV star was photographed with a pair of small gold earrings in her left ear in the shape of the letters K and W.

It is thought this is the biggest hint yet that Kim and the rapper are in a relationship.

Although the couple have been snapped out together by paparazzi, they have not yet admitted that they are dating.

The small earrings were not the only item of jewellery that Kim was wearing as she was seen arriving at Los Angeles Airport, as she was also sporting a chunky gold chain necklace and a pair of huge sunglasses with rims in the same metallic hue.

The pair may choose to keep their relationship under wraps for a little while longer as Kim is not yet divorced from her husband Kris Humphries, who she split from after just 72 days of marriage.
