Mariah Carey's Wedding Ring - Words Fail Me


When Mariah Carey and her husband Nick Cannon said "I do" to each other for the third time at their Beverly Hills home on Friday, Cannon, 29, presented his wife of two years with an unusual piece of bling: a huge, diamond- and sapphire-encrusted bauble designed to look like a high-end, thoroughly inedible version of the classic children's "ring pop" candy.


The ring is made of white gold, diamonds, and pink sapphires, and comes in a special box with a "spinner" so "you can see it sparkle under the lights inside," according to Jason Arasheben, the CEO of the Jason of Beverly Hills jewelery store where Nick purchased the ring. The spinner is another feature reminiscent of ring pop candy rings, some of which had spinners.Cannon reportedly proposed to Carey in 2008 with a real diamond hidden in a ring pop candy wrapper.

It is a vision of class and elegance just like it's bearer.

It looks like a jewel-encrusted pacifier. Ick.

Reminds me of what my grandma used to say, "money can't buy good taste."

Today is a day I sense irony reading my `regular´posts. Or then I am really missing a lot. Well, if that is so, I won´t miss more by writing out here, that this ring looks crazy.

Aw, I think it is crazy flashy, but kind of sweet? When he originally proposed (with NOT this ring, seems to be some confusion) the ring was hidden in a ring pop wrapper.

Woman likes her candy, what can I say?

Other than white gold, which there could be less of, I think this ring is kind of hilariously awesome, and he got something custom made that directly references his original proposal. Pretty cool in my opinion.
