Mariah is engaged to billionaire James Packer and supposedly sporting a whopping 35ct stunner! Anyone have any pictures? I'm dying to see this thing! Pure curiosity.

This is what a reported $7.5 million dollar 35 carat stone with small sides looks like, it must be near flawless D or an E because for that amount of money I was surprised that up close, for an EC it really doesn't look that big, maybe it's an Asscher cut, it's hard to tell in the few close up pics of it so far....

Wow that seems quick! Didn't even know she was dating haha. That is a honker for sure. I wouldn't leave the house with it, but she already has body guards and whatnot, she's probably safe!

WoW! Definitely huge and gorgeous, but I agree, it doesn't look like 35 carats. The one article linked says 30, but still, I don't know.

I love it. Classic design. It might be type IIa diamond which drives up the value. It does look smaller than Kim K's cushion but we don't know finger sizes.

Amazing ring! She is such a talented singer. Her voice is just beautiful. Each of them has been divorced twice - I really hope they can make this work and find some lasting peace and happiness.

Add that to my wish list of what I'd want if I won the lottery! And I meant the ring, not the odd looking fiancé.

He can't help his looks! I've dated some odd-looking people in my time and they all had very interesting personalities. Rock on, odd-lookers! :D

HaHa, yes, let's hear it for the odd-lookers! :lol:

The first photo in the link I looked at showed Mr. Parker's face at a bit of an odd angle and appeared to capture him mid-way through blinking. An issue with the photo as opposed to the subject; although, I believe the 'subject' in these photos was considered to be Mariah Carey.

I wish the couple many years of continued love and happiness! :love:

And I'm thankful that I don't have anyone snapping photos of me and plastering them all over the internet, TV and other media! Yikes! :-o

In this photo of the ring, the corners appear to be angled. Does that mean it might be an asscher??? Can an emerald cut diamond have angled corners??? I have so much to learn about diamonds! :read:

I love the classic, simple design of the ring.

No
Asscher is just an emerald cut that is square.
All 4 sides of an asscher are the same length, or very nearly the same.

This is an emerald cut.

Wow, check out the finger-skin you can see in that diamond.
Talk about a tilt window. :knockout:

Need to send it to Brian Gavin for a recut.

Or do all emeralds have a side-tilt window?

Oh, what a coup for cut it would have been if Vogue printed an ASET pic of that baby, with explanation.

One can dream. :wacko:

I would not say no to that ring as it is an EC!

It's a beauty, but I like Elizabeth Taylor's 30++ Stone better.

Yeah, that's the first stone I thought about when I read the title to this thread. Liz's 33.19 carat Asscher.

I like it better than that pink trilliant ring she had before.

I suppose if you can afford to buy a 30-ish carat diamond ring, you can also afford to blow a few hundred thou on a ring that can actually be word on a daily basis...
