It’s official! Paris Hilton will no longer be living the single life. The famous heiress and socialite took to her Instagram to announce the happy news of her engagement to actor boyfriend, now fiance, Chris Zylka. He popped the question during a snowy vacation in Aspen with professional photographers present and an insanely beautiful 20-carat ring worth almost $2 million.
Zylka did not mess around when it came to designing the perfect ring for the love of his life, which is why he sought out the help of diamond expert and celebrity jeweler, Michael Greene.
“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,” Greene shared. “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.”
Greene, along with his team, cut the typical three week design process down to two days so Zylka could have the ring in time for his Colorado trip. The whole process was kept secret from Hilton.
“Paris was not involved. Chris did it all,” Greene said. “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.”
It’s safe to say the proposal went off without a hitch and the happy couple could not be more in love.
