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.

  1. Imagine how many of the poor the cost of that ring would feed, how many diseases could the price of that ring cure? It is a beautiful ring but I am think the money could have been put to better use.. sorry I am forever practical 🙂

  2. My first engagement ring was tiny but pretty however every time I put the thing on something bad happened. It’s been locked up in my wardrobe for 34 years. Hubby’s tried to buy me others which is nice but it’s not the same. But this rock I’m wondering how the hell is she going to wash the dishes wearing it. Oh that right she will have slaves so no problems with the ring.

  3. I love diamonds and nice jewellery but this is far too ostentatious, does one really need that much spent on a ring to show commitment?

  4. If she gets buried with that ring when she dies, everyone will be trying to dig her up !! what a beauty, she can pay off the American debt with it 🙂

  5. I don’t really care, about Mariah’s third. I love my small flawless diamond that my late husband gave me in 1966. It still shines brightly after all the ups and downs of life it has been through on my finger.
