New mom Mariah Carey didn’t have to wait long to celebrate her first Mother’s Day. Just days after welcoming twins Monroe and Moroccan on April 30, the singer toasted her new life as a mom with a very special present from Nick Cannon: a 4-carat diamond and sapphire necklace from Jason of Beverly Hills. “Nick was really excited about the babies’ names and wanted to do a piece with them for Mariah’s first Mother’s Day,” jeweler Jason Arasheben explains. “Pink sapphires are bright and bold and diamonds are always so classic.” The sparkling piece, which also incorporates 14-karat white and rose gold, is valued at $12,000. Cannon, a longtime customer of Jason, was excited about his big surprise. “Nick came in and met with Jason on the Friday after his twins were born,” a source tells PEOPLE. “He was bleary eyed, looking so tired but so happy — all smiles, saying he wanted to design something special for Mariah’s first Mother’s day. He couldn’t want to surprise her on Sunday.” The bauble wraps up a sparkling week for stars; Rachel Zoe recently flashed her 10-carat push present, while Tori Spelling Tweeted about her fifth-anniversary pearl ring.

I would really like to know what is tacky about having your kids names on a necklace?????

Didn’t SJP make the name plate necklace huge with “Carrie”????

I would love to have a necklace with my kids names it will always be stylish unlike a tattoo of the kids names that would look tacky in 30 years.

Quite honestly, I thought Monroe read Moron. Nice nickname for the kid when she goes to school. And who names their kid Morracan? That’s something you name a bird!

@Dani, I cracked up when I read your comment! Still laughing now.

I agree that the thought does count, but that necklace reminds me of a Vegas billboard.

You negative people,get a life. I assume your relationships are negative too, misery loves company. The necklace is nice and thoughtful for his wife’s 1st mothers day present. Go Nicholas
and enjoy life with your loved ones and take it 1 day at a time. As long as you have GOD in your life, nothing else matters. I said that!!!!!!!!
