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.

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!!

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

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!

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