This is why you don't spent $2 million on a ring.

Paris Hilton has reportedly already lost her million dollar diamond engagement ring, when she was dancing in a Miami nightclub and the heavy stone flew off her finger.

The reality star was 'frantic' when she realised her ring had been flung from her hand into the VIP area, and a search ensued.

Amazingly, the special piece of jewellery - which was given to the Stars are Blind hitmaker by her Leftovers actor fiancé Chris Zylka on a ski trip to Aspen - was found two tables down in an ice bucket.

Paris was at the Above & Beyond gig with Chris, who reportedly consoled his tearful bride-to-be as staff searched the area.

"Paris was dancing with her hands in the air, and the next minute her giant ring had flown off," a witness told Page 6.

"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. It was amazing that they managed to even see that huge diamond in an ice bucket. Paris cried with relief when it was safely back on her finger.”

Paris was said to have hired extra security staff to protect the expensive piece, with the 'bling-ring squad' attempting to go incognito by dressing in "street clothes" while accompanying her.

The reality star turned DJ was also famously targeted by The Bling Ring gang - a group of celebrity-obsessed teenagers and young adults from California - who raided her mansion six times in 2009, relieving her of $1.6 million (€1.3 million) in jewellery, clothes, and other valuables.

"Now we have lasers and pressure-pad alarms and full-time guards," Paris told the Sunday Times Style magazine in 2013 of her updated security system.
