Mariah Carey's Got The Most Insane Engagement Ring We've Ever Seen

She may not want a lot for Christmas, but Mariah Carey certainly has expensive taste when it comes to engagement rings - here's why the diva's massive rock is one of the most insane we've ever seen…

It's the Christmas season again which means we're all in need of a bit more Mariah Carey in our lives. The diva is an essential part of any Christmas, with her chart-topping single All I Want For Christmas Is You still as popular as ever 25 years on from its release in 1995.

But whilst the festive anthem insists on the fact that all Mariah wants for Christmas is you, it seems her ex-fiancé James Packer still decided to go large on her gift when he proposed to her back in 2016 - as he selected a $10 million ring.

Billionaire Australian businessman Packer chose New York jeweller Wilfredo Rosado to custom-make the 32-carat ring which featured a huge diamond on a gold band.

Speaking to Vogue magazine in 2016, Rosado said: 'I really wanted to create something for her that was about new beginnings. 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.'

Sadly, Mariah and James' 'epic time' came to an abrupt end just a few months after the proposal as they called time on their relationship in October the same year. Whilst she kept the ring for a while, Mariah sold it last year for $2 million - a fifth of what James Packer originally paid for it. Ouch…
