Paris Hilton just recently became engaged to her venture capitalist boyfriend Carter Reum, and the beautiful ring she received is fit for an heiress, according to Hollywood Life.
Carter Reum got down on one knee to propose to Paris Hilton on February 13 and presented her with a massive diamond engagement ring. Jean Dousset designed the emerald-cut sparkler.
Hollywood Life recently consulted jeweler Mike Fried, CEO of Diamond Pro, who believes the ring is between 10 and 15 carats, adding that it might be worth close to $3 million.

Reum proposed during her birthday celebration on a private island, Hilton revealed in a February 17 interview. She also spoke excitedly about the next phase of her life.
Hilton said she and Reum are similar in every way, so they make each other better people. In addition to sharing the news, the couple also uploaded pictures from the proposal on her website.

In a YouTube video, Hilton unveiled the engagement ring's intricate details in the form of a hand-painted sketch and revealed the design process behind it.
But how is this rock different from those she's been presented with in the past? Take a moment to recall Hilton's rings, including a 24-carat stunner and a ring she kept despite ending the engagement.
Hilton selected a massive 24-carat canary diamond ring at the cost of $4.7 million.
Model-actor Chris Zylka proposed to Hilton in January 2018 with a lavish $2 million diamond ring. Celebrity jeweler Michael Greene designed the sparkler that had 22 carats total.
Hilton broke off their engagement in November 2018 but continued wearing the ring. In an interview, the socialite said she felt she had given the designer free publicity, so he let her keep the ring.

Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis proposed to Hilton in May 2005 after eight months of dating. Hilton selected a massive 24-carat canary diamond ring at the cost of $4.7 million.
During that time, Hilton expressed her appreciation and gratitude for finding someone who was so honest and loyal. However, the couple called it quits just six months later.

After auctioning the engagement ring, Hilton, a great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels, donated the proceeds to Hurricane Katrina victims.
At the age of 21, Hilton began dating fellow supermodel Jason Shaw. The two were briefly engaged the following year. Despite their breakup, they stayed friends and were spotted together in 2010.

Although Hilton has always cared deeply for Shaw, she was too young for a relationship when the couple started dating and wasn't ready for such commitment, a source revealed.
In the fall of 2020, Hilton said she and Reum had known each other for fifteen years before her sister called them for Thanksgiving dinner. She said they had great chemistry with each other.
