Singer Mariah Carey got engaged to Australian billionaire James Packer this week, and her engagement ring is the outstanding rock posted above.

The 35-carat diamond ring has a center stone surrounded by two tapered smaller stones in a platinum setting. US Weekly has a chart comparing Carey’s ring to other famous diamonds, and it’s a ring Drake would want for his team for sure. The average engagement ring is just one carat, and the legendary Hope Diamond is 45. A 35-carat diamond sold at auction for $9.57 million in 2012.

Carey’s ex, to whom she is legally still married, Nick Cannon, posted a meme on Instagram in reaction to the news. Cannon is doing well, but he’s no billionaire. He congratulated the couple as well.

This is the third marriage for both Carey and Packer. Carey was also previously married to music mogul Tommy Mottola.
