Word circulating the gossip rags today is that Mariah Carey’s massive rock (courtesy of her new engagement to Nick Cannon) is actually the same ring that Cannon used to propose to his previous GF Selita Ebanks.

People are calling it “tacky!” and “unbelievable!” — but through our green-tinted glasses, it’s a score for the eco world and an impressive display of recycling. You go Mariah!

    it’s possible to recycle without giving your new fiance the EXACT SAME RING (complete with emotional baggage) that you gave your last fiance. It’s called Estate Jewelry.

    LOL…Mariah is a joke. I would never take an engagement ring that was meant for someone else. But I guess with green goggles on it’s okay.

      I totally agree with you!! People are sooooo eager to hate that they cannot even see that the rings are different.

  • Shamon

    I agree. It doesn’t seem to be the same ring when you really look at them. There are some similarities, but not the same ring.

    its obvious that they are different cause mariah’s has pink diamonds surrouding the white diamond and is slightly smaller than his ex’s ring. Plus his ex’s ring in an all white diamond
