Paris Hilton got engaged to her longtime boyfriend Chris Zylka over the holiday weekend, and jewelers estimate that the diamond ring is worth $2 million.


The couple took a ski trip to Aspen for New Year’s, and that’s where Zylka popped the question. Celebrity jeweler Michael Greene confirmed on Tuesday the price tag of the 20-carat engagement ring gifted by The Leftovers star. Greene shared that the heiress called him personally after she said yes to tell him that the ring was her “dream ring,” and that the price point was just what she wanted. Zylka, however, picked it out all on his own.

Hilton shared the news of their engagement on social media on Tuesday. “The most romantic moment of my life,” she captioned a video of her beau dropping to one knee on the ski slopes. The video shows Zylka ask, “will you marry me?” to which Hilton immediately said yes, snatched the ring box from his hands, and kissed him.

In a series of Twitter posts, the former Simple Life star gushed about her happiness at her engagement to the love of her life. “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!… I said Yas! 👰🏼💅🏼💍💎 So happy & excited to be engaged to the love of my life. My best friend & soulmate. 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!😍.” Later she added, “I’m engaged That’s hot!!!”

She later posted a few extra snaps from the couple’s ski trip, each time referring to Zylka as “my fiancé.”

Hilton, 36, and Zylka, 32, began dating over two years ago when they met at Art Basel in Miami. Last year, Hilton gushed about the relationship to Entertainment Tonight and hinted that an engagement would be coming sometime in the future. “[We’re] soulmates, for sure,” she said at the time. “One hundred percent… [Being soulmates is] just being best friends and finally finding someone that I love and trust and know that I want to spend the rest of my life with. It’s the best feeling in the world.”
