Her fiance, Chris Zylka, held a search party looking for the ring in the VIP section of the night club. He eventually discovered the diamond sparkler in an ice bucket two tables down from where Paris had been partying.
During the search, Hilton "waited nervously in floods of tears". Following the reports, Paris confirmed the incident, calling it "one of the scariest moments of my life". She said she was devastated. "I thought there was no way we were going to be able to find it with all of those people in the venue. The ring was just so heavy and big that while I was dancing it literally flew off my finger into an ice bucket a couple tables over. Thank God by some miracle my fiance found it before someone else did and most likely would not have returned it. I am so lucky! Thank goodness I have amazing karma," she said.
