Since their surprise engagement on Friday, Mariah Carey and James Packer have been all smiles. And why not? The world’s most popular female vocalist meets Aussie media millionaire; it’s a match made in heaven.
But what everyone was waiting for was to see The Ring. Estimated to be valued between $4 and $10 million, Mariah’s new bling was designed and created by a close friend of the singers, who told Vogue he spent two weeks working on it 12 hours a day.
The 35 carat rock far exceeds anything Mariah has received in her past two marriages, and any jewel James bestowed on the previous three women has has been engaged to.
Congrats to Mariah Carey on her engagement. Her billionaire boyfriend popped the question with $7.5 million ring. pic.twitter.com/VlQGw3FeXZ
