Candy Bling: Mariah Carey & Billionaire Businessman James Packer Engaged + See Her $7.5 Million Diamond Ring
Move over Miley, you aren’t the only singer who decided to get engaged this week. According to The Daily Mail, Grammy Award winning singer and vocal powerhouse Mariah Carey is reportedly engaged to boyfriend, James Packer.
The Australian business mogul is said to have popped the big question in New York on Thursday evening (January 21, 2016), with a diamond ring that has an estimated value of $7.5 million. British Fine Jeweller, David Marshall of David Marshall London spoke about the ring stating:
“The stone appears to be an Emerald cut and if it is a D Flawless (the highest colour grading and without flaws) it will be in the region of $5m just for the stone at cost price. I would say that the retail value of the ring could be in the region of $7.5m.”
David Allen, the creative director of 77Diamonds added:
“This emerald cut diamond engagement ring looks to be around 30 carats and given Mariah’s penchant for perfection it will no doubt be of the top colour and clarity quality. Something like this would be valued in excess of $1.7m, the wholesale value of a diamond D flawless would be around $4.5m and retail we would sell for around $5m.”
This is the third marriage for Mariah, who first married Tommy Mottola in 1993 before their divorce in 1997. She then married actor and businessman Nick Cannon in 2008. Their separation shocked fans when it was announced in August 2014.
Mariah and James Packer (this is also his third marriage) began dating in the summer of 2015.
