“Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend”. Marilyn said this sentence more than 50 years ago. Currently, many celebrities have a passion for diamond jewelry. We refer to necklaces, engagement rings or simple couple gifts; which are inaccessible to anyone of us. But you wonder how they are and their worth. According to the specialists diamond jewelry WP Diamonds, many of these jewels have more than a million dollars. Here is a very surprising list.
Superstar Rihanna once hinted to Vogue magazine that she was just like regular folk.
“My jewelry’s all fake — from Claire’s.”
Not many believed Rihanna, because every time she’s been photographed out and about, the sexy singer is draped in expensive baubles like an 81.88-carat platinum-set diamond necklace by Chopard. That exquisite piece alone costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. It’s no secret beautiful celebrities like getting their bling on, or as the famous lyrics from Rihanna’s song reveal, “Shine bright like a diamond.”
Celebrities and Their Favorite Jewels
Ever since Kim Kardashian teamed up with iconic, hip-hop star Kanye West, the most famous reality television star has certainly upped her game. Her amazing, 15-carat diamond engagement ring cost $3 million!

LOL!”
Mariah Carey prides herself on extremely, attractive jewelry that sparkles brightly and is fit only for a diva.
