You’d be smiling too with a diamond this big! James Packer proposed to Mariah Carey on Thursday night with a 35-carat engagement ring, estimated to be worth upwards of $10 million.
Just to compare, Kim Kardashian’s ring from Kanye West is a measly 15 carats, while Jennifer Lopez’s famed pink diamond sparkler from ex Ben Affleck was just 6.1 carats. Even Kate Middleton’s sapphire-and-diamond sparkler, which belonged to Princess Diana, is only 18 carats.
Carey’s diamond-and-platinum ring was designed by Wilfredo Rosado and features one massive 35-carat center stone flanked by two 1-carat baguettes.
“I really wanted to create something for her that was about new beginnings,” Rosado told Vogue Magazine. “I wanted to give her something super sophisticated and something that took away all of the embellishments that a lot of people use when they design engagement rings these days. But it is epic. It’s an epic ring for an epic time in her life.”
