Rihanna’s Million Dollar Birthday Baubles

The singer celebrated her 30th wearing an eclectic array of treasures

by Marion Fasel

No one wears jewelry like Rihanna. Don’t get me wrong, lots of women have sensational jewelry style. Rihanna is just different. She is fearless about what she wears and how she wears it. Of course, she wears cool jewels and she has collaborated on making major treasures that reflect her funkier side. But she also puts on jewelry from designers that are known almost exclusively to connoisseurs and collectors. The unique way she mixes it up makes the array look like, well, she owns it. There is always a luxurious naturalness to her jewelry style.

For her 30th birthday party, a black-tie occasion at The Grill in Manhattan, Rihanna celebrated with her friends at a private party wearing over $1-million in diamond jewelry. Working with her brilliant stylist Jahleel Weaver, who tirelessly searches to find rarefied names, she mixed vintage with modern and couture with demi-fine. The gems, that added up in value to well over $1-million, were paired with a striking fuchsia and black Saint Laurent bubble Spring 2018 dress. Get a closer look at each of the treasures below. I tracked down photos, carat weights and prices of just about everything.
