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.

Jax on

The necklace is beautiful! Congrats on your babies Mariah and Nick! I am proud of Nick stepping up and being an amazing husband and father! Mariah is gonna need all your love and support, childbirth and raising a child ain’t easy but its soooooooooo worth it!!

Steph on

tacky!

Courtney on

love that it’s beautiul and tasteful like something Nat King Cole would’ve done for his wife Maria when she had their identical twin daughters Casey & Timolin in September 1961. Nick is a hopelessly romantic man the kind a woman like Mariah deserves

AA on

steph took the words right out of my mouth…..tacky!

Jon on

I like The PHOTO, that is very sweet & nice! The Necklace looks so pretty!

Jennifer on

It’s the tought that counts :D

alex on

Super Tacky.

Mimi on

I wish finding ways to carelessly spend my money on exorbitantly priced items was all I had to worry about. Please, these two will end up divorced – trust me!

alb on

One would usually have to travel to a Dollar Store to find something so beautiful!

Jill on

I think it’s really cute and totally up Mariah’s alley!

Deb on

Holy Ghetto!

Madeline on

Horribly tacky just like the mother so the gift fits perfectly!

JerseyGal on

Its a SHAME that $$$ Does NOT Buy CLASS!!
SUPER DUPER TACKY!!

lw on

Why all the negative comments? Some of you sound a little envious. I’m sure Mariah appreciates the gift because it was given to her by her loving husband and that is all that matters.

Mom Of Twins on

It’s beautiful, and I bet it even looks better in person.

lighthouse on

I am happy for the birth of their twins but I for the life of me do not understand why people name their children names that are silly and ridiculous. Most of these children will grow up and want to change their names.

Halley on

The necklace is not my style at all, but its the thought that counts. Its sweet that he was so excited to do something for his wife for her first mother’s day.

Lily on

It’s not my taste, but I think it’s sweet and thoughtful.

Vera on

Beautiful necklace. Still think the names are weird.

LuvIT on

That is beyond sweet! What a thoughtful and cute idea for a necklace. I would love to have one of these made for my son!!

WOW on

You guys are haters! This is so adorable! If Mariah likes it then what difference does it make to you? Congratulations!

tack e on

Tacky! Just like the names.

Sabri on

I like it! It looks pretty !

Karen on

Anyone who has something negative to say…stop hating!!! So what if they ends up divorced. No one knows what the future holds, so at least they are enjoying it now. It’s so sad that people can’t stand seeing someone happy. Guess it’s true that misery loves company!

GO NICK AND MARIAH…DO YOUR THANG!!!

bride on

Dumb just like the names.

LADY on

YUP I SEE IT SHE WILL BE DIVORCING HIM SHE JUST GOT WITH HIM JUST TO GET PREGO’S TO HAVE HOLLYWOOD OFF HER BACK SHE WACK ALSO… NICK COOL BUT I FEEL HE SHOULD OF WIFED UP SOMEONE ELSE NOT HER….SHE IS VERY CONCIDED….

LADY on

THEN KILLED THOSE POOR KIDS WITH THOSE HORRIBLE NAMES… LOL

LOLA on

Please, he used her money for this!!!!!!!!! Real ghetto piece.

B on

Ummmmmmmmm……..can we say GHETTO!!!! That’s a hot mess!!!! Come on dude…….you’re making us look bad!!!!!

Jen on

Too bad there weren’t any ‘S’s they could have exchanged for $ signs in the name…

dhendricks on

Mariah looks old enough to be Nick’s mother.

Oh wait, she IS.

Lisa on

You know what’s tacky? All of you who are posting negative, hateful comments! Didn’t your mother teach you if you had nothing nice to say, keep your mouth shut? A husband did something thoughtful for his wife in celebration of their first children–that’s beautiful.

Miss Anne on

@ Steph… Yep best word to describe that thang.

amber on

Love the necklace.

Heather on

Just goes to show you money doesn’t buy good taste. As long as she likes it though that is all the matters…

kc on

OMG, tacky necklace, ridiculous names!! Poor kids, it’s sad that have retarded parents, no amount of money can make up for that.

PK on

Some people should not have money…

Lorraine on

Horrible !!!!! So Tackieeee. When and where will she ever wear it ???? Money does not always buy style.

Erica on

Yikes, I second the “tacky” comment(s). I think the names are yucky, too, but to each its own.

Kristin on

For those of you who said this was tacky–keep your opinions to yourselves. This was a lovely gift a husband gave to his wife after she gave birth to their twins. I think the necklace with the two names intertwined with each other is just beautiful. Nick was being a thoughtful husband to Mariah. She definitely deserved a gift that recognizes her new status as a mother. It’s beautiful.

Dani on

I still can’t get over the fact that they named one of their kids “Moroccan”. Really? I would never name my kid a nationality. How lame. “Oh look at my little ‘Indian’ on the monkey bars? or “Oh look at ‘Chinese’ on the swings”. Give me a break.

M on

I completely agree with Steph’s comment, Tacky!! Just hope the children don’t get bullied later down the road because of the names they were given.

nicole on

i agree with Steph.. tacky

Suzy on

Less is more. And this is definitely not less.

Jon on

I liked a clip from tonight’s new Episode of The Real Housewives of NY, it was interesting!

Jasmine on

Awww I love it! But actually, this necklace only works for Mimi…on anyone else it would look ultra ghetto ;) But Mariah can totally get away with it. Actually, it matches her M.C.C. necklace! ;-)

Sissy on

I like the names because it means something to the parents who created the children! I grew up with regular names that everyone over uses and gave to their boys and girls! The necklace is beautiful and Nick got it for his wife and mother of his kids because he knew she would like it! You people are haters and insecure about yourselves and your own lack of taste, too scared to do your own thing, and always doing something that others will approve of!

Amelia on

The necklace is truly tasteless, tacky and cheap looking. It looks like you can buy it at one of those Mall Kiosks…I am not surprised that it looks so bad. I would have thought something classy, timeless, smaller and elegant would be appropriate, but I guess this shows the egos…Like the kids are a possession. Sad…

Be happy for them. They just had twins & he wanted to get her something for her first Mother’s Day. So what if Nick & Mariah are rich it’s their money. I think it’s beautiful & very sweet.

Nancy on

Its so sad that when 2 people are so happy people feel like they need to attack them. My goodness it must be nice for her that he loves her so much that he wants to give her something special.I wish them both the best and hopefuly a long and happy marriage with 2 precious healthy children

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.

SAN on

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!

Pjstroer on

Wonder if they’lll be calling them Roc and Roe for short?

@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.

amanda davenport on

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!!!!!!!!

Marie on

Some of you ppl are hilarious! Telling those with a different opinion to get a life, haters, jealous, grow up, etc…..quite comical and very juvenile. It is possible for ppl to just not like it. Imagine that. People have a different opinion than you. This couple is choosing to make their life private. Their choice. If they don’t want the comments, then don’t share. It’s simple. But they love the attention. Fine. Stop throwing a pity part for them. You look silly.

Marian on

Pls do not wish them a divorce, a new parent deserved sweet wishes. ashole!!!!!!!!!!!!

Slcota on

Envy is one of the deadlist sins.. just and FYI for all you people who are obviously so jealous of the fact they can afford such an expensive piece. I say good for them, if she loved it than thats what matters. Anything with my childrens name on it would be an amazing gift.. and what does Nick buying this gift for her have anything to do with if you think they will stay married or not?!?! Shame on all of you!!

Treva on

whatever, haters. this is a modest push gift for twins. The women on the housewives of orange county have more audacious “gifts”

Samantha on

I think it would have been a better choice to have a necklace made with M&M in diamonds instead of their names…..

TRACK on

CONGRATS! MARIAH/NICK, SO GLAD YOU GOT A FINE YOUNG ONE TO KEEP UP WITH YOU! OTHERS ARE SO JEALOUS, YOU DON’T HAVE TO WAIT FOR THE VIAGRA TO KICK IN!!!

It sounds like people are jealous, it seems to me that they are totally in love with each other and I hope and pray that they do not ever get divorced. Mariah deserves to have all the happiness she can get from her loving husband, and children.
