Kendall Jenner doesn't want to choose her own engagement ring.

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star - who is dating basketball player , Ben Simmons - would ''give hints'' about the type of sparkler she'd like to be given when her partner pops the question but thinks it would be ''romantic'' not to have to be involved in the process.

Asked if she wants to pick out her engagement ring or be totally surprised, she told ELLE.com: ''I mean, I kind of love the idea of letting the man pick it and having it be that pretty thing that he kind of thought of himself.

''And having the feeling of like, oh, he made this with me in thought, kind of a thing. I like thinking that just the way it was made reminded him of me. That to me is kind of romantic.

''But at the same time, I'm the type of person that would give hints, and be like, 'I kind of want this.' ''

The 23-year-old beauty - who is one of the new faces of Tiffany & Co. - admitted she and her siblings often eye their mother Kris Jenner's jewellery hopefully and she's particularly keen to inherit her ''generous'' mom's watch collection.

She said: ''I think we all kind of call dibs on certain things. I know it's kind of a weird thing to call dibs on, but my mom's very giving, and she loves to hand them over to her daughters even when she's just over things.

''So we're all kind of waiting for one day for her to feel generous and be like, 'You guys want this stuff?'

''She has really good watches like, really, really nice watches. I'd want something from her watch game.''
