Singer Mariah Carey is engaged for the third time to Australian billionaire James Packer and her ring is breathtakingly gorgeous.
The 47 year old casino mogul is said to have proposed yesterday evening with a diamond engagement rock, estimated to be around $7.5 million after dating Mariah for less than a year.
British Fine Jeweller, David Marshall of David Marshall London said about Mariah’s sparkler:
‘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.’
The pair, whose combined estimated fortune is around $3.4billion USD (AU$4.89billion) have no wedding date has been set just yet.

The marriage will be 46 year old Mariah’s third shot at happiness, having previously spent seven years with Nick Cannon, with whom she has two children, and five years with music executive Tommy Mottola.
James is also anticipating a third marriage. He was previously married to Erica Packer for six years but they separated in 2013. He was also previously married to one Jodi Meares for three years.
Big congrats to the couple. Hopefully the third time will be a charm for both of them.
