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.

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! ;-)

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!

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.

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
