‘Paris’ stunning ring appears to feature a 15-20 carat emerald cut diamond, framed by two trapezoid or trillion shaped accent diamonds and set on a delicate white gold or platinum band,’ she said. ‘Depending on the quality and specific characteristics of the center stone, we estimate the cost of the ring to be well over $1M USD.’ 

The hotel heiress also shared sketches of the ring to give fans a play-by-play glimpse of how Dousset brought the fantasy to life.

‘We pushed the limits of jewelry using a tension setting to align the diamonds seamlessly without metal,’ Paris wrote explaining the out of the box concept behind the ring.

‘A group of the finest diamond cutters, polishers, jewelers, and setters were assembled for this special project,’ she added.

The Los Angeles-based jeweler has designed one-of-a-kind engagement rings for 15 years with his namesake label. Dousset worked with prestigious French jewelry houses Boucheron and Van Cleef & Arpels before venturing out on his own.

Previous clients of his include Amy Adams and Eva Longoria.
