Paris Hilton is finally getting her happily ever after. On Feb. 13, the hotel heiress got engaged to her boyfriend Carter Reum, who proposed to her with a custom engagement ring worth millions.

But despite Reum reportedly dropping $2 million on the stunning sparkler, it’s actually not the most expensive engagement ring Hilton has ever received.

How many times has Paris Hilton been engaged?

If you’ve been following Hilton’s love life closely throughout the years, then you likely know that this isn’t the first time a boyfriend has put a ring on her finger.

Before striking up a romance with Reum, the famous socialite was engaged three times to three different men.

Hilton was first engaged to model Jason Shaw, who was eight years her senior, in 2002. Unfortunately, the engagement only lasted a year, as the couple called it quits in 2003. However, they remained friendly after their breakup and even sparked reconciliation rumors in 2010.

Two years after her split from Shaw, the hotel heiress became engaged to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis after just eight months of dating. But six months later, the couple called it quits.

In 2018, Hilton got engaged to The Leftovers actor Chris Zylka, who proposed to her in Aspen, Colorado. The two were engaged for about a year before Hilton broke things off due to her not being ready for marriage.

Which of Paris Hilton’s ex-fiancés spent the money on an engagement ring?

Though each one of her relationships was different from the next, one thing all three of Hilton’s engagements had in common was that each of her exes proposed to her with stunning sparklers worth quite a pretty penny.

But while all of her ex-fiancés dished out millions of dollars for Hilton’s engagement rings, only one takes the cake for spending the most: Latsis.

According to E! News, Latsis reportedly presented Hilton with 15 different engagement rings (by acclaimed jewelers like Tiffany and Harry Winston) to choose from.

After looking through her opinions, Hilton settled on a 24-carat canary diamond ring that was valued at a whopping $4.7 million, making it her most expensive engagement ring to date.

“I’m so in love and grateful to have found such an honest and loyal person,” she gushed to Us Weekly at the time, per E! News. “I feel like we were meant to be, and I’m happy to have found someone to spend the rest of my life with.”

Though Hilton’s engagement ring from Reum didn’t cost as much as the one she received from Latsis, he still dished out quite a bit of money for her brand new jewelry piece.

Paris Hilton Says Ending Her Engagement With Chris Zylka Was ‘The Best Decision I’ve Ever Made in My Life’

According to E! News, Reum proposed to Hilton with a stunning 20-carat emerald cut diamond ring with trapezoid diamonds on each side. The jewelry piece was designed by Jean Dousset, the great-grandson of Louis Cartier, and retails for about $2 million.

Hilton and Reum’s engagement comes just over a year after she first went public with the savvy entrepreneur back in January 2020.

Since then, the two have been inseparable, attending A-list events side by side and even quarantining together amid the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

“This past year with COVID has accelerated so many things,” Hilton explained to People. “As someone who traveled constantly, I had a chance to stay home and reevaluate what was important to me. My relationship and the time I spent with Carter was a gift. I’m excited for our next chapter.”

Though much isn’t known about their relationship, it’s clear that Hilton and Reum are head over heels in love, and we wish them nothing but happiness as they embark on this exciting new journey together.
