By Thursday night, the 45-year-old was spotted arm-in-arm with the Australian businessman and even gave TMZ a flash of the large rock she's now sporting on her ring finger.

And calling it large is no overstatement. According to E! News, the diamond "comes in at around 35 carats."

That's something to sing about! And it's not the first time Packer has given his bride-to-be some major bling.

During a visit to Steve Harvey's daytime talk show in November, Carey showed off a diamond necklace her then "new beau" gave her.

"Ain't he lucky?" Harvey said of Packer.

"I'm lucky, too," Carey shot back with a smile.
