Paris Hilton has hired 24/7 security to guard the huge $2 million diamond engagement ring she received from actor boyfriend Chris Zylka earlier this week.
Around The Clock Security
The hotel heiress doesn't want to take any chances and wants to make sure that the 22-carat diamond engagement ring is protected around the clock.
"They've had 24/7 security shadowing them," sources told TMZ. "And specifically the ring - ever since last weekend."
Hilton's friend, Kim Kardashian, was robbed at gunpoint of $10 million worth of jewelry, including a $4 million ring in Paris in 2016, and her aunt Kyle Richards was also a victim of a home invasion. Therefore, it seems logical for Hilton to take the extra precautions to protect herself and her ring.
Hilton And Zylka's Engagement
Hilton and Zylka got engaged during a ski trip in Aspen, Colorado, over the New Year's weekend after The Amazing Spider-Man actor got down on one knee and popped the question.
"I said yas! So happy and excited to be engaged to the love of my life," she captioned the pictures. "My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way. So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! You are my dream come true! Thank you for showing me that fairytales do exist."
The Engagement Ring
The Simple Life star announced the news of their engagement with a series of romantic pictures on her Instagram account, including a photo of the multi-million dollar sparkler.

According to E! News, the $2 million engagement ring was designed by renowned jewelry designer Michael Greene.
Greene told the publication that after the engagement, Hilton called him to express her appreciation over the ring and said it was "her dream diamond." He added that she never imagined Zylka would think of something "so perfect" and she's quite "happy and excited."
The jeweler also noted that the actor reached out to him and visited him in New York, where he told him what he was looking for. He pointed out that Zylka had spoken to Hilton's family members for tips and ideas and wanted the ring to be nothing short of perfect.
Zylka surely got what he wanted because Hilton cannot stop showing off the ring and gushed about it in a recent interview with People.
"The ring was so gorgeous and sparkling," she said. "I was shaking as I put it on. It is the most beautiful ring that I have ever seen!"
