It’s Kim Kardashian versus Mariah Carey in the battle of the bling! Flaunting your engagement ring seems to be Hollywood’s newest sport lately. So when it comes to mega divas Kim and Mariah, we had to know, who has the most epic rock?!
It’s an engagement ring face-off featuring two of Hollywood’s most iconic celebs: Kim Kardashian, 35, and Mariah Carey, 45. Forget cars, carats are the new status symbol! But just which lady has the most impressive bling? Read on to find out!
After popping the question on Jan. 21, James Packer, 48, whipped out one massive rock for his bride-to-be, Mariah. The stunning 35-carat diamond ring cost a whopping $10 million, which is extremely impressive! But how does it compare to fellow diva, Kim Kardashian’s, ring?
Kanye West, 38, proposed to Kim with a gorgeous, custom-made 15-carat ring. But although Mariah takes home the prize for most carats, Kim’s rock is completely one-of-a-kind and near perfection. The rock itself is “D-flawless,” reported E! News back in 2013. “It’s the best color, clarity, and cut there is. There’s no comparison!” And we have to agree – Kanye did well! In fact, Kanye had creative control over the ring’s design process and specifically wanted the diamond to look like it was floating on air. The result is a breathless bauble that pretty much crushes any other engagement rings.
But if size matters, and as we know, it definitely does, Mariah takes home the grand prize easily. her humongous Wilfredo Rosado bauble is simply one of the biggest rings on the planet. For comparison, the average engagement ring is 1 carat. But even by celebrity standards, Mariah’s ring takes the cake.
Elizabeth Taylor’s notorious 33-carat rock was a sight to see, but even that piece doesn’t overshadow the singer’s. James picked out a classic platinum set that features a tapered baguette diamond mounting, making Mariah’s sparkler truly unique. If diamonds are a girl’s best friend, Mariah definitely has the ultimate BFF!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers, whose ring is better? Are you team Kim or team Mariah?
