With all the buzz about Khloe Kardashian’s 9-carat diamond ring cluttering the airwaves, it’s easy to forget about other celebrity bling that made our hearts skip a beat.

Now that Mariah Carey is running around on all the talk shows promoting her latest album, I am reminded that this diva has a rock to rival them all.

Do you remember the 17-carat pink diamond ring she got from Nick Canon back in 2008? The impressive sparkler from Jacob & Co is valued at a whopping $2.5 million and with a center stone weighing in at 10-carats – a little smaller than a dime.

“I wanted to do something extremely special, something that Mariah would really appreciate,” Cannon told PEOPLE back in the day. “We got the pinkest stone we could find, surrounded by other diamonds.”

Carey definitely approved. “It’s so clear, you can see my finger through it,” she said.

According to Jacob Arabo of Jacob & Co., Cannon “was very involved,” in picking the ring, which has an emerald-cut fancy light pink center stone surrounded by 58 intense pink diamonds, flanked by two half-moon diamonds.

Stop! It’s too much to bear…
