It’s no small task to choose an engagement ring worthy of one of the world’s biggest superstars, but Mariah Carey’s billionaire beau has managed to pull it off!

The “Always Be My Baby” songstress is now rocking a flawless diamond stunner, proving that her fiance, James Packer, has impeccable (and expensive) taste.

“The center stone is 35 carats,” Wilfredo Rosado Fine Jewelry confirms to The Knot, “and the baguettes [are] 1 carat each.”

The result? A one-of-a-kind piece fit for a singer who just happens to hold the record for the longest-running number one song in U.S. chart history.

And while his fiancee’s impressive ring may have cost a pretty penny, we’re certain that Australian businessman Packer, 48, will continue to shower Carey with extravagant gifts. He is estimated to be worth nearly 5 billion dollars. His soon-to-be wife is not hurting either; she has an estimated worth in the millions.

While the couple, who got engaged January 21 in New York City, are in the midst of planning their upcoming nuptials, they’ll be working on combining their families as well. Carey has four-year old twins, Moroccan and Monroe, with ex-husband Nick Cannon. Packer shares three children, Indigo, 7, Jackson, 5, and Emmanuelle, 3 with Australian singer and model Erica Baxter, who is now reportedly dating British singer Seal.

Carey has yet to personally comment about her engagement, but she may have shown off a glimpse of her engagement ring via Instagram on Saturday, January 23. The bride-to-be posted a photo of herself decorating a Christmas tree with daughter Monroe even though it’s January. “Christmas revisited…#couldntresistmakinganotherchristmastree #thoughitsjanuary,” she captioned the shot. In the photo, Carey has a big smile on her face while wearing Hello Kitty pajamas and posing beside her daughter. She also appears to have a big diamond ring on her ring finger.

As we hold out for wedding details, we can’t help but think it will be a lavish event with no expense spared. Congratulations to the newly engaged couple! May your future be filled with nothing but the best.
