Celebrity Jewelry Spotlight: Lewis Hamilton’s Diamond Studs
Posted on October 08 2014
Recently, Maggie wrote about Pharrell Williams and his jewelry choices and it inspired me to write about one of my favorite athletes, Lewis Hamilton. For those of you that do not follow Formula 1, Hamilton is a British racing driver for Mercedes AMG Petronas that is currently battling with his teammate Nico Rosberg for this year’s driver’s championship, with Infiniti Red Bull’s Daniel Ricciardo not far behind. With only four races left in the season, I and many fans worldwide are anxiously waiting to see who will come out on top. Hamilton is known for his emotional driving, but also for his keen fashion sense. Though I have seen him in a number of diamond earrings over the years, including a pair of three prong black diamond studs, lately he has been thoroughly enjoying his large, white diamond stud earrings.
We estimate that each stud weighs between 2.00 ct and 2.50 ct. They look to be in traditional four-prong settings, which clearly display the diamonds. The estimated cost of Hamilton’s earrings depend on the 4 C’s of the diamonds used, but with a quick diamond search, I can see that they may have cost the driver anywhere between $32,000 and $56,000 if he chose diamonds with G-H color and VS1-VS2 clarity. However, this is a very rough estimate and his earrings may be worth more than that projected value, depending on the quality that were used. For instance, if Lewis purchased two internally flawless (IF) diamond studs with D or E color, he may have paid upwards of $130,000 or more for his pair of diamond earrings. Hamilton’s jewelry is always prominently on display and I always find myself envying his large, diamond stud earrings.
deBebians carries a variety of diamond stud earrings, which are appropriate for both men and women. We offer up to 2.00 cttw, but if you would like to design a custom pair with a larger carat weight, you may fill out a custom and free jewelry quote. With the driver’s championship winding down, I can’t wait to see if Hamilton has another reason to shine besides his taste in jewelry.
