Paris Hilton upped her security since getting that $2 million engagement ring


Paris Hilton got engaged last week, after fiancé Chris Zylka presented her with a $2 million, 20-carat diamond engagement ring. Side note: as many commenters have noted, Chris may or may not have laid down the cash for the pricy bauble. Page Six quoted jeweler Michael Greene, who crafted the ring, as saying, “How it was paid for, I won’t disclose.” And when asked if some sort of promotional deal was made, he demurred, “Those are the kind of things I wouldn’t talk about.” So, yeah, you can probably expect to see lots of shout-outs to @greeneandco on Paris’ Instagram feed. (There are already a bunch of photos of her on their feed.)

Anyway, in light of Kim Kardashian’s Paris robbery, where she was aggressively relieved of a 20-carat ring, and the recent robbery of a million in loot from Paris’s aunt, Kyle Richards’s, home, the bride-to-be isn’t taking any chances. TMZ reports that Paris has upped her security, employing a street clothes-wearing security team to keep their eyes on her and her bling – 24/7.

The security squad was most likely on hand at the Golden Globes Sunday night when Paris showed off her new ring (over lace gloves). Paris’s fiance Chris talked PEOPLE and his engagement, saying “I’m absolutely thrilled,” adding, “I met the woman of my dreams and she said, ‘Yes.’” Paris gushed “I’ve never been happier. I found my dream man.”

I don’t know about you, but I would be incredibly uncomfortable walking around with a rock that large on my hand. Not only because it’s just too big, but also for the risk of losing it, especially at the hands of an armed robber. As much as I’m not a fan of Paris, I hope she doesn’t meet the same fate as her aunt and her former BFF.

    I had a paltry 1/3 carat diamond and feared losing it. What are these people thinking?

    • STRIPE says:

      It’s all relative I suspect. If you grow up with that kind of money, it may not be as big of a deal.

  2. truthSF says:

    Paris absolutely brought that ring herself! Dude is only worth $5 million, yet he was able to afford a $2 million ring…I don’t think so!

    Plus, Paris has been trying desperately to be relevant again over the past 2 years. This is just her latest move in a long line of attempts!

  3. Seraphina says:

    I agree. I would feel like a walking target no amount of security would make me feel me feel safe.

    As far as the ring, I’ll keep saying this: it looks like a ring out of a bubble gum machine. I find it amazing how royalty do their rings and how celebrities do theirs.

    Paris found her soulmate!? Surprised to hear she has a soul…

    Gorgeous ring.

    For two million, I’d rather buy a house but I’m not a celeb that has to show off in Instagram. 😛

    Please find the video of the two of them at the airport where her driver, after she gets in the car leaves him standing on the curb with his luggage.

    It is worthy of its own post.

    So is she going to have extra security for the rest of her life because of that ring? So badly thought out…

  9. JA says:

    I stopped wearing my engagement ring and just wear my band unless its a special event or night out. It’s insured but its my husband’s grandma’s diamond so I would feel awful if I lost it. Can’t imagine wearing 2million out and about….I asked my husband not to tell me how much the ring cost because A. it didn’t matter and B. knowing would give me anxiety.

  10. Maria F. says:

    the engagement video was so staged and cringeworthy.

    I side eye a man who will pretend to have purchased this ring for her.

    It is an ugly ring. So tacky
    Her hair looks better then ever!
