To put in perspective just how massive Maria Carey’s 35-carat engagement ring is, Kim Kardashian’s much talked-about Lorraine Schwartz cushion-cut diamond ring from husband Kanye West is 15 carats — less than half of what Carey’s is.
It also beat out Beyonce’s 18-carat Lorraine Schwartz diamond ring from Jay Z, valued at over $5 million, as well as Kate Middleton’s 18-carat heirloom ring.

Meanwhile, Carey, 45, is still officially the wife of second husband Nick Cannon, and Packer, 48, isn’t quite divorced from ex Erica Packer yet.
Meanwhile, James is also still married to his second wife Erica, 38, with whom he has three children of his own. The couple separated in 2013 and the singer/model is now reportedly Seal’s girlfriend.

But insiders tell TMZ that divorce laws in Australia, where James and Erica are from, are delaying the process.
Guess we’re looking at a long engagement for Mariah and James! That’s okay, though. Their relationship seems solid enough to see it through until they can finally walk down the aisle. Third time’s a charm, right?
