Mariah Carey, James Packer, and ring make red carpet appearance

MARIAH CAREY JAMES PACKER

The 35-carat engagement ring made its first red carpet with Mariah Carey and James Packer at G'Day USA in Los Angeles.

There’s bling bling. And then there’s bling bling BLING.

When James Packer, one of Australia’s richest men, proposed to girlfriend Mariah Carey he went with the latter. The billionaire casino mogul gifted the American singer an engagement ring with a rock bigger than the ones given to both Beyonce and Kim Kardashian combined.

And now, the 35-carat masterpiece has made its first red carpet appearance. The ring was accompanied by its proud owner and James as it attended G’Day USA gala in Los Angeles, mingling with celebs including Nicole Richie, 5SOS band members, and Hugh Jackman. So that no attention was taken away from it, the couple both chose all-black ensembles.

The new couple became engaged after James gathered Mariah's closest family and friends at a restaurant in New York City and popped the question. They loved like total ~relationship goals~ as they posed for photos at the star-studded party. At one point, Mariah leaned in to James to no doubt whisper, "Look at everyone loving my ring, sweetie." (Just our guess.)
