Paris Hilton is engaged and wearing a very special new glow.
Venture capitalist Carter Reum proposed to her on Saturday while celebrating the entrepreneur and DJ’s 40th birthday on a private island, and gifted her a spectacular emerald-cut diamond engagement ring.
“My love went above and beyond in every way,” Hilton wrote on her website. “He asked Jean Dousset, the great-great-grandson of Louis-François Cartier, to design an incredibly beautiful ring that appears to be lit from within.”
It appears that the giant flare, which also features two trapezoidal stones flanking the central diamond, as well as dozens of smaller stones throughout the intricate setting, was inspired by iconic Paris landmarks such as the Grand Palais and the Eiffel Tower.
Hilton shared a YouTube video of her personalized ring, called “Paris” of course, hand painted in Dousset’s workshop.
Reum apparently spared no expense on his beloved’s sparkler; According to Shannon Delany-Ron, communications director for JamesAllen.com, the ring “appears to be at least 10 carats, with a price that probably starts at around $ 1 million.”
Kathryn Money, Brilliant Earth’s Senior Vice President of Marketing and Retail Expansion, echoed the estimate, telling Page Six Style that the center diamond could easily be 15-20 carats.
And Mike Fried, CEO of Diamond Pro, ventured an even higher valuation: “I’d say he has dwarfed the $ 2 million worth of his last ring,” the gem expert told Page Six Style, calling it a “giant company in the world. jeweler”. “And a” masterpiece of design. “
