Paris Hilton shows off her latest massive engagement ring

Paris Hilton puts on a leggy display as she steps out to a late night dinner with her fiancé in Malibu

Paris Hilton got engaged over the Valentine’s Day weekend. It was especially exciting because her family was celebrating her 40th birthday so it was a Paris Extravaganza. One thing that was oddly downplayed at the time was the massive diamond fiancé Carter Reum used to propose. If you remember Paris’ engagement to Chris Zylka (not to be confused with her engagements to Jason Shaw or Paris Latsis), the 20 -carat, pear-shaped, custom designed diamond engagement ring was heavily featured in the announcement. Some might say more than Chris. In addition to the rock extending past Paris’ knuckle, it got attention because 1) it bore a resemblance to a similar ring Cardi B had been showing off about the same time and 2) absolutely no one believed that Chris either designed it or paid for it himself.

This engagement, the ring was only partially visible in photos and very few details were leaked. It looked to be the same size of the Zylka pear diamond, but it was clear this was an emerald cut monster. It was reported that the ring was designed by Jean Dousset, who is the great-great grandson of Louis Cartier, but that’s all we got. I, foolishly, thought it was because the emphasis this engagement was on love. No, it was because the ring was getting its own night. Last Tuesday, wearing all black, Paris blinded most of Malibu as she went to dinner wearing signature fingerless gloves.

Paris Hilton is hitting the town with a new accessory on her ring finger.

On Tuesday, the singer made her first public appearance since announcing her engagement to Carter Reum as she stepped out for a late-night dinner in Malibu with her husband-to-be.

Hilton, 40, had her massive engagement ring on display, matching the sparkler to her shiny face mask.

The entrepreneur dressed in an all-black ensemble for her night out, wearing a long-sleeve collared shirt tucked into a leather mini skirt. She also accessorized her look with sheer black tights, suede booties and fingerless gloves.
Reum, 40, proposed to Hilton after a year of dating on Feb. 13 while the couple celebrated her 40th birthday on a private island. Reum popped the question with a one-of-a-kind diamond engagement ring.

The mega-carat, emerald-cut sparkler was designed by jeweler Jean Dousset — the great-great-grandson of famed French jeweler Louis Cartier.

Note, this time she didn’t even bother to include the fiancé. You can see a larger photo of the ring on Brides Magazine’s website. Paris also posted this video to her YouTube channel of the ring being designed. The video is gorgeous. It also helped me figure out the shape of the giant baguettes, which I couldn’t make out in the pics but they are trap cut diamonds. I was going to make some snarky comments about why have a “custom” designed ring that is essentially just a giant Emerald cut diamond with side stones, but the video shows the elaborate side work under the diamond so I get it now. It’s not my taste, but I think that applies to most of Paris’ lifestyle. Except for the all black, ring reveal outfit she chose. That’s adorable.

What is also not my style is Paris’ choice of birthday gift. I am so happy I came across this story in Vanity Fair, it’s made my whole week. Paris “gifted” her now fiancé Carter Reum a giant painted portrait of him kissing her forehead for his birthday. In the video, they promise to find the “perfect” place to hang it. But, I think they’re in her house. So I guess he can visit it when he’s allowed over? Maybe that’s why he proposed, because he couldn’t imagine being away from his portrait? I know I couldn’t.

Seriously, listen to Carter try to act appropriately for the taped reaction shot here:

    Ok now I’m just having flashbacks to the episode of Big Bang Theory where Amy gets that GIANT painting of her and Penny as a gift for Penny.

  2. K-Peace says:

    I hate that i know this but, she was never engaged to Stavros Niarchos.—It was a guy named Paris Latsis (who was also a very rich, very young Greek guy).

  3. Lainey says:

    As son as lock down is lifted and paris can hit Thr club this engagement will be just another memory.

  4. Sofia says:

    Eh. Maybe it’ll last this time. Paris is going to show off the ring because she’s Paris after all and rich expensive things are her brand and lifestyle. The pandemic probably forced her to sit down and really think about what she wants in life which may include kids and/or a husband.

    Plus after seeing her sister marry a Rothschild, have 2 kids and still be a socialite could be inspirational to Paris that she can keep certain aspects of her lifestyle and still be a mom/wife.

  5. Jillian says:

    He seems nice! I wouldn’t have able to stop laughing, probably forever, if someone gave me a painting like that and he was terribly sweet about it

  6. Helen says:

    Why is she wearing the gloves?!, is what I keep asking myself ever since the engagement news. How is the ring supposed to get all the attention with the glove on?

    • BW says:

      People who wear fingerless gloves (who aren’t Bob Cratchit wearing them for warmth) are usually vain people with old hands. Think older Madonna and Karl Lagerfeld. I suspect Paris’ hands look old or wrinkled or discolored and she’s trying to cover them up and claiming that it’s her “look.”

    • Yup, Me says:

      As the poster above said, it’s a vanity thing about the appearance of her hands. The age and veining on the backs of her hands bother her, so she’s decided to draw attention to them by constantly wearing fugly gloves. They really do detract from the ring. . . as does Paris’ history of racism and bigotry.

      Separately, this financial side hustle she’s had going on where she gets engaged with a massive ring and then breaks it off months later deserves some deeper exploration.

  7. ItReallyIsYouNotMe says:

    I just realized that I have never heard Paris speak before. Does she always sound like a 13 year old?

    • Abby says:

      She sounded like that on her reality show The Simple Life (I hate that I know this haha)

    • Jules says:

      Yes, it’s her baby voice that is supposed to be sexy and make her sound dumb. But she is tricking us because apparently she is not dumb, or something like that. So pretending to be dumb and like a baby is both sexy and smart.

  8. G says:

    Eh she’s really harmless …

  9. Abby says:

    OK so… I really love that all black outfit. I would wear it in a heartbeat. And I would REALLY like that pretty mask. Where can I order it cause I want to buy it today. :-)

    Never thought I’d say that about anything Paris Hilton but she looks really chic in that photo!

  10. Joanna says:

    She just annoys me with the baby voice. WHY DOES SHE DO THAT?!

  11. Kate says:

    I feel like I’ve read that same IG post before, gushing over her fiancé and how magical his kisses make her feel..

  12. Julia K says:

    The fit of that leather mini skirt and the way it flows over a bit of tummy makes me wonder if she is already pregnant. I just get that vibe. Or not.

  13. SusieQ says:

    I couldn’t imagine having a ring like that. I think I would be in a constant state of panic. And it looks crazy uncomfortable!

  14. Eenie Googles says:

    Why does she keep wearing fingerless gloves? It’s not 2008, or 1988, or 1898, so wtf

  15. Natters says:

    She says the same thing about every man she is in a relationship with. Her ring looks like every other engagement ring she was given or bought herself. I think she wants to emulate her sister’s life so this one might stick for awhile at least long enough to make those babies she is harvesting her eggs for.

  16. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    The outfit. The gloves. Her voice. Ridiculousness.

  17. Jules says:

    Omg that video. He seems so not into her. They kiss like platonic friends lol. My bet is these two will not make it to the wedding day.

  18. Cherbear says:

    Carter Reum was a genuinely nice person waaaayyyyy back in the day when I knew him…. Very family oriented and kind. I hope this is good, and wish them the best.

  19. AMA1977 says:

    Does she have a logo’d Chanel AREA RUG in her house? That looks like what I imagine would be on the floor at the entrance to the Chanel boutique on a rainy day (I am a poor in Paris’ world, so I wouldn’t actually know if Chanel has logo’d mats they put out on rainy days. They probably have a team of staff to dry the wet feet of their patrons or something equally ridiculous.)

    I have nothing to say about this person’s fifth engagement. I will be shocked if they make it down the aisle and veritably DUMBSTRUCK if they remain married for 5 years.

    • Jules says:

      Lol so you’re gonna talk about the area rug and not the painted portrait of her and her NEW FIANCÉ everybody!

  20. Egla says:

    She is weird in a harmless way. So she basically gets engaged to all the guys she dates??? It’s like Elisabet Taylor who married all the guy she dated apparently.
    And those rings must cost a fortune. Do these guys really have that kind of money? She is my age and looks so good soo…good luck I gues. Fifth time is a charm

  21. Spiffypaws says:

    She looks pregnant

  22. Golly Gee says:

    Maybe the painting will go into the closet and become uglier and uglier with every bad deed she commits, like voting for the orange MAG-ot.

  23. Lissdogmom02 says:

    The thing is, Paris’s most important relationship is with herself, everyone else is an accessory. I mean this is really the same lovely story told, I can’t keep up with how many times. She auditions them & ring shops at the same time, 😂 lol, & wash & repeat.
    The painting is a whole thing unto itself, 😂😂
