Ring it in! Mariah Carey and James Packer got engaged on Thursday, January 21, and that “yes!” came with an eye-popping 35-carat diamond engagement ring.
The “We Belong Together” diva flashed the humungous Wilfredo Rosado bauble — which boasts two tapered diamonds around its center stone in a platinum setting — while exiting the Eleven Madison Park restaurant in NYC on Thursday night.
There’s no denying it: Thirty-five carats is huge. The average engagement ring is 1 carat, and even by celebrity standards — and we’re talking Elizabeth Taylor standards — it’s one of the biggest rings on the planet.
But that kind of big is kind of hard to conceptualize, which is why we’re offering up these by-the-carat comparisons, so you can see just how massive Carey’s ring is — even in Hollywood. Embrace your inner Holly Golightly, and happy ogling!
