Here's How Much Paris Hilton's Engagement Ring Costs

January 02, 2018Jan 02, 2018

Over the weekend, Paris Hilton got engaged to actor Chris Zylka. The two were in Aspen, Colorado on a ski trip when Zylka popped the big question. 

The heiress said, "I am so excited to be engaged to the love of my life and my best friend. I have never felt so happy, safe, and loved. He is perfect for me in every way and showed me that fairytales really do exist!"

Hilton said that she was surprised when Zylka proposed. She said that they were on the slopes taking photos when he got down on one knee and asked her to marry him.  

She said, "I was so excited and surprised! I immediately said yes!"

Now, the focus is not only on the couple's engagement but also on another significant aspect of it: the ring. Paris gushed about seeing the giant diamond for the first time.

She said, "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!"

Now, TMZ has released special details about the ring. It cost a shocking $2 million and was designed by Michael Greene.

According to People, the diamond is 20 carats and took almost four full months to cut. The pear-shaped diamond is set on a platinum split shank halo band.

Greene said, "Paris at one point in time told Chris she really loved her mother's pear-shaped diamond, and when Chris came to me that was his request. The pear-shaped really jumped out for him and ultimately for her. He did some fishing, but in the end it was all him. He's a smart guy, and hangs out a lot with the family, and I think she realized how much she liked her mom's ring."

The designer also said that Zylka kept the entire ring-designing process a secret from Hilton.

Greene said, "Paris was not involved. Chris did it all. He wanted to do everything so perfectly. He wants the best thing for his princess. And he did all the right things. He told me he had to set up a time to meet up with Paris' father to ask for her hand in marriage. He did the whole thing. All the traditions."

Greene also said that Zylka was shaking when he came in to pick up the ring because he was "so nervous."

He said, "When he came to pick it up and opened the box he literally started shaking. He said, 'I can't stop shaking.' It was like taking a good size man and bringing him down to a boy size giggle. He's a super nice guy."

Another special detail about the ring is when Zylka placed the order for it. He contacted the designer over the summer, around 5-6 months prior to popping the question. Though the couple just made their relationship public last February, Zylka knew early on that he wanted to marry Hilton.
