SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 7, 2005--Amazon Services, Inc., a subsidiary of Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) today announced the addition of five new pieces to the Paris Hilton Collection, the top-selling line of jewelry designed by Paris Hilton and available exclusively at the Amazon.com Jewelry store (www.amazon.com/jewelry). Customers will find the new designs, which include a charm bracelet, pendant, dangle earrings, a belly bar and a pet collar, in the Paris Hilton Boutique (www.amazon.com/parishilton) on Amazon.com.

"Fans have been so thrilled with my Amazon.com jewelry line that I wanted to create even more designs for them to enjoy," said Paris Hilton. "In addition to my own sense of style, I think a lot of people admire Tinkerbell's look, which is why I decided to include a glamorous pet collar as part of the new collection."

The new designs, priced from $18 to $60, are crafted from the highest quality sterling silver and crystals and introduce new blue and violet colors to the line. The pet collar, which comes in two sizes, has a strong chain collar with a dangling crystal charm in the shape of a bone.

"The Paris Hilton Collection has been a top seller in the Amazon.com Jewelry store for 22 weeks, since we launched it last September," said Russell Grandinetti, Amazon.com's vice president of Jewelry & Watches. "Customers have loved the exclusive content, images and products in the Paris Hilton Boutique, which make shopping for her jewelry entertaining as well as convenient no matter where they live."

The Paris Hilton Boutique on Amazon.com is a destination for fans, offering exclusive photos and behind-the-scenes video footage of Paris Hilton during her jewelry line photo shoot. There is also footage of Hilton working in the design studio and a personal message to Amazon.com shoppers visiting the boutique.

Every piece from the Paris Hilton Collection is delivered to customers in Amazon.com's signature midnight-blue velvet jewelry pouches, and includes a keepsake card with a note from Paris Hilton featuring her signature tiara logo.
