Ladies, how would you feel if your man got you candy-inspired jewelry for your big day?
If you’re Mariah Carey, 41, you would LOVE it! She and hubby Nick Cannon, 29, celebrated wedding anniversary #2 by saying “I do” for a third time Apr. 30, and he celebrated the occasion with a hand-crafted Ring Pop made of white gold, white diamonds and pink sapphires from Jason of Beverly Hills, according to People.
“He probably paid about $50,000 for it,” Robert DiMattina, owner of Diamond Images USA in Miami, Fla., tells HollywoodLife.com. “It has about 350 pink sapphires and about 5-7 karats of small diamonds.”
Before you dismiss the gift as completely ridiculous (that was my first reaction), you should know that Ring Pops have some serious sentimental value for the couple.
When Nick proposed to Mariah in 2007, he hid the diamond engagement ring in a Ring Pop wrapper so she would be totally surprised! Maybe that’s what inspired Mariah’s 2009 track “Candy Bling” in which she refers to love of Ring Pops!
Nick really loves Mariah. It’s no wonder she has him totally whipped!
