Celebrity Mariah Carey Engaged to James Packer
Mariah Carey is engaged to her boyfriend of nearly a year, Australian billionaire James Packer. According to Vogue, Packer proposed with a massage 35-carat diamond ring, designed by Wilfredo Rosado.
I took the standards super high, and I wanted to create a ring that could not be measured up to, Rosado told the magazine. We have the same taste, and when it came down to it, 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. The sparkler is an emerald cut with two baguettes flanking both sides of the center stone.
Mariah Carey revealed how the two connected on "The Steve Harvey Show" last November. According to Forbes, Packer is the fourth richest man in Australia. His casino magnate's reported net worth is $3.5 billion. This will be the third marriage for Carey. She was previously married to music executive Tommy Mottola and TV personality, Nick Cannon.
