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.

Moving Up — Not Out — with Wilkerson

Trish Parks has always wanted to be in the jewelry business and that passion has fueled her success. The original Corinth Jewelers opened in the Mississippi town of the same name in 2007. This year, Parks moved her business from its original strip mall location to a 10,000-square foot standalone store. To make room for fresh, new merchandise, she asked Wilkerson to organize a moving sale. “What I remember most about the sale is the outpouring excitement and appreciation from our customers,” says Parks. Would she recommend Wilkerson to other jewelers? “I would recommend Wilkerson because they came in, did what they were supposed to and made us all comfortable. And we met our goals.”
