It sounds like Paris Hilton is still getting used to the massive rock on her left hand. While partying with fiancé Chris Zylka at a massive nightclub in the former RC Cola Plant at Mana Wynwood in Miami late Thursday night, Hilton was sent scrambling to find her $2 million engagement ring after it flew off her hand.

According to Page Six, Zylka and a security team reportedly searched the entire VIP area in the 50,000-square-foot club before finally finding the ring in—fittingly—an ice bucket a few tables away.

"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," a witness told the outlet. "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. Miraculously they found the ring in an ice bucket two tables down." They added, "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."

Above & Beyond, a trio of British DJs who were performing during the frantic search mission, confirmed that the heiress had indeed briefly lost her engagement ring early Friday morning. "@ParisHilton nice to meet you and glad you found your ring," they tweeted from the group's account around 4 a.m.

Zylka, an actor and artist, popped the question during a ski trip with Hilton in Aspen, Colorado, over New Year's. Shortly after announcing her engagement—via a series of photos on Instagram and a perfectly on-brand tweet, reading, "I'm engaged That's hot!!!"—Hilton told People that she fully approved of the 20-carat sparkler that Zylka picked out (and that bears a striking resemblance to Cardi B's own engagement ring). "The ring was so gorgeous and sparkling. I was shaking as I put it on. It is the most beautiful ring that I have ever seen!" she said.
