Breakups are tough. Sometimes you have to go on vacation spontaneously. Or move to a new apartment. Or get a dog. Or, if you're Mariah Carey secretly sell your huge, 35-carat diamond engagement ring for a cool $ 2 million.
The ring, which is said to have a value of around $ 10 million, was part of the deal agreed by Carey and Australian Tycoon James Packer after they split in 2017. According to Page Six Carey quietly sold her engagement ring to an unnamed Los Angeles jeweler for $ 2.1 million, which is a great way to get rid of unwanted luggage. "Mariah has recently been very vocal about her decision to move forward in her life, surrounded by positivity," her journalist told Page Six . "For that, emotional and material baggage must be left behind, including an old engagement ring from an ex-boyfriend."
A source added that a confidentiality agreement was signed to prevent the jeweler from revealing the identity of the original owner of the ring. "The jeweler is selling it right now, and there is only one such ring." Mariah Carey's PR folks are desperate to keep the story secret from the press and have threatened the jeweler with litigation if he reveals her name. "
Another source "mocked" the prospect that Carey had sold it because she needed money. "She owns several houses, her entire catalog of music, and she has had many successful tours and residencies."
