Christmas lights aren’t the only thing glistening this year.
Celebrity jewelry designer Kyle Chan decked out Mariah Carey and Carrie Underwood in more than $250,000 worth of jewels combined for their sparkling holiday appearances. All of the pieces were loaned out to the stars.
In typical Carey form, the 50-year-old songstress first wore Chan’s lavish 9-carat diamond starburst earrings to prep her Thanksgiving dinner. While the gems are worth $33,000, Chan joked to us that they were just part of “her causal attire at home.”
Then, for her appearance on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” earlier this month, Chan decked out Carey’s ears with 10-carat eternity diamond hoop earrings in white gold. The jaw-dropping jewels cost a whopping $38,000.
