Mariah Carey, her new fiance James Packer and her dazzling diamond ring made their red carpet debut for the G’Day USA Gala in Los Angeles Thursday.

Making their first red carpet appearance since their January 21 engagement, Carey and Packer arrived in sleek style wearing all black for the January 28 Australian and American business networking event.

Carey looked stunning in a body-hugging black dress with just a hint of sparkle. The full-length skirt and long sleeves of the semi-sparkly gown – paired with her pale lips and nude nails – allowed her engagement ring to take center stage.

Although, with an engagement ring that contains over 35 carats worth of diamonds, those stones don’t really need a platform on which to shine – they’ll shine in any light!

Packer, Carey’s billionaire beau, presented the singer with an incredible 35-carat emerald-cut center stone with single-carat baguettes on either side when he proposed in New York just over a week ago. Wilfredo Rosado Fine Jewelry confirmed to The Knot that each baguette is one carat.

The couple have yet to announce any wedding plans just yet, but we can guess that Packer will spoil his bride in true billionaire fashion!
