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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

Beautiful necklace. Still think the names are weird.
