Paris Hilton was partying when she lost her engagement ring, which later turned up in — of all places — an ice bucket at another VIP table in the Miami club where the incident took place, The New York Post’s Page Six reports.
The ring is valued at $2 million, and Hilton had security scour the venue until it was found, the story reports.
“The enormous 20-carat diamond engagement ring from fiance Chris Zylka flew off Hilton’s finger into the packed crowd while she danced in the early hours of Friday to a set by British DJs Above & Beyond at industrial former soda factory RC Cola Plant at Mana Wynwood, a nearly 50,000-square-foot venue with a 7,000-person capacity, witnesses said,” The Post reports. “After an exhaustive search of the VIP area — led by an astonishingly calm Zylka, 32, and an army of security, while distraught Hilton, 37, waited nervously in floods of tears — her giant rock was miraculously found in an ice bucket two tables down from where Hilton had been partying.”
The report quotes a witness saying: “Paris was dancing with her hands in the air, and the next minute her giant ring had flown off. She was really panicked as the venue was packed and very dark, it was the early hours of the morning and it was crazy in there.
“Security started an exhaustive search of the VIP area with torches, led by Chris and with the help of other patrons. There was a frantic scramble with everyone looking for it, people were crawling on the floor, under tables, under other people’s feet, and under seats.”
