Wedding Rings – King of Bling
Mariah Carey, who has appeared in numerous hip-hop videos, is a well-known advocate of ‘blinging’ jewellery and, it’s safe to say, $16 million wedding rings should certainly sate that appetite for expensive adornments. The wedding ring in question is a 14 carat, pink diamond wedding ring which was picked out personally by her television star boyfriend, Nick Cannon. Wedding rings are a sign of unity and matrimony and it goes without saying that it was a rather grand gesture on Nick Cannon’s part in order to show just how much he cared for the Grammy award winning songstress. Speaking to the Mirror, a friend of Cannon’s stated, “Nick has been besotted since he first met Mariah on a US TV show three years ago. Just before they got married, he got down on one knee again and gave her the pink diamond ring he'd had custom made. She was stunned and thrilled.”
