Mariah Carey’s 35-Carat Diamond Engagement Ring Makes Red Carpet Debut with James Packer

Mariah Carey‘s massive engagement ring, gifted to her by billionaire boyfriend James Packer, is no joke.

If Mimi isn’t careful, she might take out one of Packer’s eyeballs with the 35-carat custom-made diamond ring.

The newly-engaged couple made their red carpet debut as married-peoples-to-be last night (Jan. 28) at the G’Day USA Gala in Los Angeles.

Mimi’s rock, which must have cost Packer some amount of millions (which means close to nothing for the guy who was once, in the last decade, the richest man in Australia, and whose net worth is estimated at and around $4.5 billion), was front and center:

Wowza. An Us Weekly source says, “She was playing with her ring and twirling it around on her finger. All night. She doesn’t bend her finger. It’s like she’s proudly putting it on display.”

Another guest at the event commented, “She was proudly flashing that ring around. Her ring totally overpowered her black dress.”

Carey looks as happy and glowing as ever (and honestly, we would too, if we had like $10 mil on our finger):
