He was the world’s highest-paid athlete last year.

A jeweler in Las Vegas says former professional boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. purchased a necklace for $3 million — and didn’t finish paying for it.

The Jewelers Inc. filed a lawsuit claiming that it’s still owed $1.4 million for the piece, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reports.

The company says Mayweather initially paid $1 million and then made several payments of $100,000 each for the piece, which has 72 diamonds.

But after that, Mayweather wouldn’t pay the rest, The Jewelers Inc. claims in the lawsuit.

Mayweather wouldn’t comment on the litigation, which was filed in Clark County District Court, the newspaper reports.

In 2015, Forbes ranked Mayweather as the world’s highest-paid athlete, with earnings of $300 million that year.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
