Turns out Valentine's weekend was one helluva weekend for Paris Hilton. In addition to featuring the 'most romantic day of the year', the star celebrated her 40th birthday on a private island with her family and, to top it all off, she also got engaged to (now fiancé) Carter Reum. Ooft, can you imagine? So. Much. Happening. And yep, before you ask, Paris' engagement ring is a stunner.

Paris announced the news on Instagram overnight with some super cute pics of Carter's proposal. In the snaps, the heiress looks glam AF, wearing an embellished bridal-esque dress by Retrofête, complete with a high slit and deep V neckline. Accessories-wise, she finished the look with a sparkly Loschy crown, bedazzled fingerless gloves and, of course, her massive ring.

"When you find your soulmate, you don’t just know it. You feel it. 💫 " wrote Paris. "My love & I have been together since our first date, and for my birthday, he arranged a special trip to tropical paradise. 🏝️ As we walked to dinner along the beach, Carter led us to a cabana adorned with flowers and dropped to one knee. 💍 I said yes, yes to forever ❤️ There’s no one I’d rather spend forever with. ✨ To see more photos of my birthday dream come true, visit Here's to Love - the Forever Kind 💋 #Engaged #SheSaidYes"

Designed by jeweller Jean Dousset (AKA the great-great-grandson of Louis Cartier), Paris' engagement ring features a whopping diamond set in a platinum band.

"The ring is an emerald cut set with trapezoid side stones" explains GIA certified gemologist and founder of The Clear Cut, Olivia Landau. "It is an estimated 10-15ct center stone which could range from $500,000 [£360,000 approx.] to over $1,000,000 [£780,000 approx.]! There is also a hidden halo detail and pave diamond detail on the prongs."

According to Paris' website, which also includes more pics of the piece, the design was "influenced by both classical and Art Nouveau motifs, it is framed by forms that resemble the vaulted glass ceiling of the Grand Palais."

For those keen for a closer look at the engagement ring, Paris shared a behind-the-scenes clip of the ring's creative process on her Youtube channel:

"My fairytale dream came true! I love my future husband so much!😍 Best birthday surprise ever!! ✨👰🏼💎✨ So excited to be your wife!"

Congrats to the happy couple!
