Paris Hilton jokes about the similarities between her engagement ring and Cardi B’s

A post shared by Paris Hilton (@parishilton) on

So, Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka got engaged during a New Year’s jaunt in Aspen. In order to seal the deal, the 32-year-old actor bought Paris some pre-marital bling worthy of a heiress, a 20-carat, custom designed, pear-shaped stunner, which was estimated to have put Chris out around $2 million (which, if you go by the old “three months salary” unofficial engagement ring cost estimator, means that he brings in an impressive $666,666 a month).

The platinum-set ring was designed by Chris, and crafted by diamond expert/jewelry designer to the stars Michael Greene, who shared Chris’ inspiration for the sparkler with PEOPLE, recalling:

“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.”


Some eagle-eyed fans noticed a similarity between Paris’ ring, which she has been prominently displaying on the slopes courtesy of a pair of fingerless gloves, and another recent bauble that made headlines, rapper Cardi B’s pear-shaped jewel, bequeathed to her by Migos’ Offset back in October. Even though Cardi’s ring is a mere 8-carats, the two rings do kind of look alike, and you know that neither Chris nor Offset went to Jared for these.

Paris took note of a fan’s tweet that read, “Cardi B and Paris Hilton’s are twinning with the pear shaped rings ! @iamcardib @ParisHilton.” The 36-year-old reality show personality-turned-DJ replied, “Our future hubby’s [sic] obviously both have amazing & similar taste! Congrats @iamcardib & @OffsetYRN! #LuckyGirls #RingGoals.” Aww, Paris… I guess money just can’t buy good grammar.

Is having a similar engagement ring anything like wearing the same outfit as someone to a party? I don’t know. All I know is that ring is ginormous. I’m a fan of much more subdued jewels, and of being able to lift my hand up quickly when need be. Anyway, congrats, ladies.

Life is Beautiful ✨💛✨

    The ring, and the way she is showing it off – hilariously low end.

  2. Millennial says:

    I’m not convinced either one of them has $2 million, so put me in the Synthetic Diamond Conspiracy Theorists category.

  3. Snowflake says:

    Paris looks great. She hasn’t gone overboard with tweaking her face. I think she does something, right? Or do you think she’s all natural? I think Paris is going to age well. Her old Buddy, Kim, OTOH, yikes! CardiB is really pretty. Yikes at those nails! Do you think they will wear those rings everyday or do you think they have an everyday ring? I would think it would put them at a high risk of getting mugged with that bling

  4. It’sJustBlanche says:

    I can’t imagine the type of person who could plan on spending a weekend with this woman, much less a lifetime.

  5. HeyThere! says:

    Cardi B must have small hands because her 8 looks like Paris Hilton’s 20!? Or, once they get so big they all look the same? Lol IDK My mind just went somewhere dirty.

  6. Other Renee says:

    Paris honey, that ridiculous pose wasn’t sexy ten years ago and it’s still not sexy. But congrats on the engagement. Three times the charm!

  7. River Song says:

    I don’t like huge rings or diamonds (I prefer semi-precious little stones) so I don’t find her ring pretty at all.

    I’m curious about this « three months salary rule »,  because I’ve never heard of that before. But I’m French – maybe it’s an American thing ?

    • bluhare says:

      A jewelry store used to have ads saying that was the guideline. Probably to get men to spend more on rings!

      And no way they paid $2 mil for the ring. They probably got a steep discount for all the publicity it’s getting. I don’t think he designed and bought it either. I’d think he’d need a mortgage to buy that thing!

      Check out “Adam Ruins Everything” – it’s a TV show, but also you can find on YouTube. He basically goes through all these myths and social “rules” and debunks them – such a great show (and they provide citations). One of the episodes is either Adam Ruins Love or Adam Ruins Marriage and he gets into why diamonds are the preferred engagement stone (and where that came from/why it’s a ridiculous arbitrary tradition), the salary “rule” (What Bluhare mentioned), divorce statistics, etc.

  8. Kimma1216 says:

    Wait? Who is this guy and how long have they been together? He looks like he’s 15?!…

  9. Wen says:

    Another Hilton post? Oh god, someone is trying to make a comeback in 2018, can we please not go there?

  10. Wellsie says:

    I just noticed how far she leans back when she poses… how does she stop from tipping over?!

    Oh, and these two are gross. Congrats, gross people!

  11. Khymera says:

    Im a Cardi fan but i hate her ring too big too tacky. That goes double for paris who i never like, i always found her annoying was so happy when she was no longer a thing.

  12. Jordan says:

    As someone who works in the jewelry industry, I freaking love pear cut diamonds.

  13. trollontheloose says:

    I would never trade my Etsy bought ring for my engagement and my mother in law ‘s vintage wedding ring that she gave to me. Her own grandmother wore it and gave it to her daughter who gave it to her daughter who gave it to me. it’s not worth a million but it’s priceless.

  14. Jillybean says:

    They’re nice rings and good for them all the best…. but are ya looking to get mugged?

  15. Mimz says:

    I know this isnt the right forum but I was wondering why there was no uproar about cardi simulating sex on fb/ig live with her *classy* boyfriend a couple weeks ago? I mean, is it because she was a stripper? If it was Nicki doing that she would be dragged forever… i dont know.
    Maybe its just me. Strongly disliking her and what she represents.

    I used to really dislike Paris when i was younger and she was everywhere with that stupid show with Nicole Richie, but now I think she’s pretty harmless and even bland. Id take her over the Kardashians any day.

    Congrats to both couples and nothing nice to say about the rings.

  16. JustJen says:

    I’ll take 5 Hilton posts in exchange for zero cheeto nazi posts.

  17. Sarah says:

    Dude looks like he has zero brain cells…so, only slightly less than Paris has! 😛 Would LOVE to hear five minutes of one of their conversations…

  18. trillian says:

    I don’t get this engagement ring obsession at all. 99 % of all the rings look incredibly tacky to me. Like something out of a vending machine. Plus is this 3 months’ salary thing really true? Do “regular” women really wear several-thousand-dollar rings???

  19. bcgirl says:

    why the H is Paris Hilton of 2003 on this site every other day??

  20. Marianne says:

    yeah, I dont think $2million is Chris Zlyka’s “3 month salary”.

  21. Zooyork says:

    Chris is hot on The Leftovers.
