Judge the Jewels: Rihanna Wears a $400K Diamond Watch on Her Ankle 

It’s covered in emerald and round-cut white diamonds.




The sighting: Superstar Rihanna was spotted in Las Vegas wearing a very sparkly watch in an unexpected way.

The jewels: Rihanna is wearing a custom watch anklet by Jacob & Co. The watch is valued at $400,000 and is covered in emerald and round cut white diamonds.

I think she may also be wearing some pearls under that jacket , but it’s hard to tell.

The trends: If Rihanna keeps wearing watches everywhere but on her wrist, other people are going to start getting more creative with their watch-wearing, too – it’s inevitable. Rihanna is just too influential for her style to not spread.

What do we think? When Rihanna wore a Jacob & Co watch as a choker, I appreciated the creativity but wasn’t overly excited about the look. It felt a little forced, more gimmicky than natural.

The ankle watch styling works much better for me. I’m not even entirely sure why: maybe the cleverness of switching extremities appeals to me more than just slapping a watch on a random body part? But this feels spontaneous and fresh and chic, much more than the watch choker ever did. It’s not any more practical than the watch choker, but I find it much cooler.

Judgement: 16/10 for super fun, creative styling.

Why This Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

Mark Lauer is the owner of Mark Michael Diamond Designs, the Minnesota-based jewelry gallery known for exceptional and uniquely designed diamond jewelry. Though he loved creating the beautiful jewelry his business was known for, retirement was an exciting alternative to the 60+ hours a week he’d spent building it up. He called Wilkerson to help with a retirement sale. “I did talk to two other companies, but I just didn’t feel they offered the same services that Wilkerson did,” he says. “I knew Wilkerson had the expertise to follow through and give me the service and results that I wanted. They’re the number one rock stars in this industry.”
