Paris Hilton is engaged and her ring is an absolute knock out!


Paris Hilton, 36, has announced her engagement to Chris Zylka, 32, on January 2, 2017.

Following the beautiful engagement in the scenic mountains of Aspen, Colorado, the millionaire heiress has been cheerily showing off her engagement ring and we really can’t blame her – that ring is such a huge gem, literally!

About the ring

In addition to the major, blinding 20-carat stone that sits pretty in the middle of Ms. Hilton's gem, there’s also a platinum, split shank halo band that is embellished with smaller diamonds which amount to another two carats.

How much it’s worth

People magazine estimates the huge, 20-carat dazzler at a whopping $2million!

In comparison, the glittering, stunning diamond ring recently given to Bodak Yellow star, Cardi B, when she got engaged to Migos star, Offset, was 8 karats and reportedly cost $500K less!

No surprise, then, that the newly-engaged 36 year old Paris won’t stop flaunting her new best friend.

She was pictured on Wednesday, just one day after the engagement putting her finger – and the ring, of course! – on display despite the freezing weather.

Braving the cold, she rocked fingerless black gloves, paired with a gold puffer coat, gold mirrored sunglasses, a black beanie, blinged-out choker and wearing her hair in pigtails for an afternoon out with her new fiancee.

A personal touch

Zylka designed the flawless pear-shaped diamond sparkler all by himself — with a little assistance from Diamond expert and celebrity jeweler, Michael Greene.

The ring was modelled after one of Hilton’s mom’s pear-shaped rings, after she once told him how enamoured to the gem she was.

What Paris says about it

“The ring was so gorgeous and sparkling. I was shaking as I put it on. It is the most beautiful ring that I have ever seen!” the Hilton Hotels heiress tells People Magazine.

Wedding date

Nothing has been said yet of their wedding date.

This is in contrast to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry who announced their wedding date at the same time as their engagement.

The royal couple will tie the knot in May 2018.
