When proposing to a hotel heiress, you can’t just pop the question with any old ring. Just ask Chris Zylka, who got down on one knee with an engagement ring that is more than fit for the one and only Paris Hilton.
Paris grew up in the lap of luxury, so we expected nothing but the best when she showed off her sparkler from The Leftovers actor. However, even we were blown away by the size of her new rock. Life & Style reached out to celebrity jeweler George Khalife, and he revealed that the ring is worth a pretty penny.
“It’s a pear-shaped diamond, split shank band with a thin halo,” he said before estimating the diamond to be 15 carats and worth $2 to $3 million dollars. It’s no surprise Paris, 36, yelled “Yas” the minute Chris, 32, opened up the box. Watch out, Cardi B.
Following their winter wonderland engagement, Paris could not stop gushing on social media. “So happy and excited to be engaged to the love of my life. My best friend and soulmate,” she wrote. “Perfect for me in every way. So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! You are my dream come true! Thank you for showing me that fairytales do exist.”

She continued, “You have a heart of gold, a smile that can melt ice & a twinkle in your eyes that makes me dream #TeamUs #Forever.” This will be the second engagement (and second ring) for the blonde beauty, who was previously betrothed to Paris Latsis. Shockingly, her diamond from the Greek shipping heir was bigger at 24 carats. Unfortunately, the “Parises” called off the engagement in 2005. At the time of the split, the “Stars Are Blind” singer said, “I will always love him. He treated me like a princess the entire time. I love how he’s handling this like a gentleman. I really respect that.”
