The gigantic sparkler that James bought her was 35 carats and reportedly worth $10 million dollars. It was part of a financial settlement that she made back in 2017 after their split.

So why is she selling it when it was part of her settlement in the first place? "Mariah has been very vocal recently about her choice to move forward in her life surrounded by positivity,” her publicist told Page Six.
