NFL Draft Top Prospect Drops $41k ... On Pre-Draft Jewelry Run

4/28/2016 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


He's about to become a millionaire overnight -- so top NFL prospect Artie Burns decided to celebrate early ... by dropping $41k on some sick jewelry, TMZ Sports has learned. 

The former University of Miami star is projected to go in the 1st or 2nd round ... and earlier this week, he swung over to Joe Avianne's at Avianne and Co. in NYC to ice up. 

"Artie came through and picked up a 2-tone Rolex ($19k), a diamond cross ($3k) and a diamond tennis chain ($19k)," Avianne tells us. 

So what's Artie's next purchase? Hopefully a safe.

Exclusive Details

0419_fEtty_wap_jewelery_tmz_instagramFetty Wap could be rolling in a brand new Lambo right now, but instead he opted for a chain and a couple of watches ... for major cheese.

Fetty copped a 75 carat gold Cuban chain, a matching Cuban bracelet (just 25 carat gold though) and 2 Day-Date Rollies ... fully iced out. Total shopping spree price tag: $350,000!

The rapper made his purchases at Avianne & Co. Jewelers in NYC -- the same spot 2 Chainz swears by for new pieces.

Hopefully Fetty had some extra cash to pick up diapers. Diamond encrusted, of course.

4/23/2016 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ex-NFL star Kerry Rhodes is officially showing off ... showing off his super hot fiancee -- "Hall Pass" actress Nicky Whelan -- and her impressive engagement ring on a night out in NYC.

The two -- who announced their future union back in February -- hit up K Rico steakhouse in Manhattan recently where Nicky flashed her bling to the throngs of paps outside.

0420-kerry-rhodes-wedding-ring-engagement-GETTY-01As for the ring ... it's not quite Russell Wilson territory -- meaning you can't see it from space -- but for a guy who's been out of the league for a couple seasons we gotta say ... not bad.


BTW, if you're wondering ... Nicky was the super hot chick Owen Wilson almost banged in "Hall Pass." Nice work, Mr. Rhodes!

0415-mayweather-chain-tmz-01Floyd Mayweather is still finding ways to show us he's rich as hell ... this time it's hooking up with one of NYC's best jewelers and copping a neck piece worth A QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS.

The money man stopped into the Mr. Flawless jewelry store in Manhattan on Thursday and went HAM ... copping a "double lion head cuban bust down no lock."

We don't really know what the hell that means ... but we do know the gold and diamond chain weighs a monstrous 1,200 grams and set Mr. Mayweather back an INSANE $250k.

Floyd's been on a spree recently ... earlier this week we saw him cop $500k for his girlfriend Bad Medina ... the 4th car he's bought her in two years.

What's a little giving if you can't TREAT YO' SELF.

0407-vanessa-bryant-instagram-02Vanessa Bryant says Kobe gave her all 5 of his NBA Championship rings ... increasing her collection of insanely expensive Kobe Bryant gift rings to 6. 

Vanessa went to Instagram to pose with the 5 Lakers championship rings ... and then announced her claim to them saying, "Only 5 more games left!!! Had to post the 5 Championship rings my boo-boo gave me. So awesome to have been a part of his journey."

So, technically ... Vanessa Bryant has more rings than LeBron. 

Rob Kardashian Popped the Question Minutes After Getting Ring

4/6/2016 2:33 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob Kardashian was so eager to get engaged he popped the question literally the minute he got the ring from the jeweler ... and it happened so fast the jeweler saw the whole thing!

Ben Baller, who sold Rob the rock for $325k, told us Wednesday they've been friends for years, and he actually grilled Rob about his decision to marry Blac Chyna.

Turns out Ben witnessed the proposal.

One more interesting thing ... Ben says it took him 5 days to get the ring ready. That really does make it look like Rob schemed to pop the question when his family was out of town.

Rob Kardashian My Family Didn't Know Jack About My Engagement

4/5/2016 2:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0405-kardashians-surprised-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-03 Rob Kardashian blindsided his family ... not giving them a heads up or even a hint about his engagement.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us, Rob went to great lengths to keep Kim and company in the dark. We're told the proposal was "aggressively on the QT."    

Our sources say Rob timed the proposal to go down when the family was away. The klan flew to Vail hours before he popped the question to Blac Chyna.

The women are not taking kindly to being squeezed out. They view the whole thing as "flaky" and, as we reported, none of the women jumped on social media to congratulate him.

Rob Kardashian Lord of the $325k Engagement Ring

4/5/2016 8:02 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Rob Kardashian spared NO expense on Blac Chyna's engagement ring -- going to one of Kanye West's favorite jewelers and dropping $325,000 ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the couple tell us Chyna's rock is a 7 carat, round brilliant cut diamond. VS1 clarity -- in a VVS diamond eternity band setting.

We're told Rob hit up celebrity jeweler Ben Baller in L.A. for the big score. 

Congrats, Blac Chyna! Here's your new workout regimen -- lugging this piece around.

4/3/2016 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Travis Scott has more colors coming out of his mouth than a kid downing a bag of Skittles ... thanks to his very unique tricked out grill. 

We found out Travis enlisted celeb grill master Johnny Dang to whip up his 18 carat gold piece which is filled with 10 carat pink, brown, blue and white diamonds! Travis plans to unveil his multi-colored mouth during his upcoming Anti World Tour dates with Rihanna.

Travis dropped $25,000 for the grill ... which had to be shipped overnight for a show this week.

Mouth stunna!

Brand new for my brother @travisscott #grillsmaster #diamondboyz

Tyga I Need a Gun 'Cause I'm a Baller

3/21/2016 12:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0320-tyga-hyde-gun-backseat-FAMEFLYNET-01Tyga is taking shots at people slamming him for showing up at a Sunset Strip nightclub with an armed man ... claiming he's like a moving bedazzled target.

We showed you pics of a guy in the backseat of Tyga's Rolls Saturday night hold a gun as Tyga was leaving Hyde lounge. It seemed odd ... in the middle of the glitzy Strip a guy would be brandishing a weapon.

We're told Tyga feels the need for heat, since he typically wears north of $100k in jewelry. The word we're getting is that it's common in the hip-hop community that people snatch chains off rappers. What's crazy ... are they suggesting it's ok to use a gun when that happens?

It's unclear why the gun was out in the open. Sources connected with Tyga say the gun was being put away and the photog got a quick shot. As for why it was out in the first place ... we don't know. 


Sean Kingston Sued for Pulling the Ol' ... Pay Ya Tuesday for a Rolex Today!

3/21/2016 12:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0318_Sean-Kingston_TMZSean Kingston picked up a Rolex and a diamond bracelet with nothing more than a promise that he'd pay for them the next day -- but now the jeweler's suing to get the dough. 

According to the lawsuit, Kingston went to Haimov Jewelers in Florida and traded in a used Rolex for a new $59,000 model, and the balance owed was $25k. The bracelet was a lot less ... just $19k to buy it or $4,000 to rent. 

Sean chose door #3 -- pay nothing, according to the suit ... even though he signed the receipt, agreeing to pay the next day.

These allegations are becoming a thing. Kingston was involved in an ongoing dispute over a $226k jewelry tab, and once claimed to have been kidnapped over another jewelry deal gone wrong.

Ray J Jewelry Haul May Explain Armed Guard

3/20/2016 12:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ray J may have good reason to have armed security follow him around, because he and his fiancee are dripping in tens of thousands of dollars in jewelry. 

The singer hit up Richard Nektalov over at Leon Diamond in NYC for a 4 carat diamond and rose gold RJ pendant, with a $10k price tag attached. But that was just the beginning. Ray also left with a $40k rose gold Rollie and two charm pendents at $7,500 a pop. 

0318-ray-j-jewelry-TMZ-02Leon Diamond does well by Ray J ... it's where he bought the 8-carat engagement ring for Princess Love back in October.

This may explain why Ray and Princess Love were escorted by a hooded, armed security dude Thursday when they hit up a Detroit nightclub. 

Shia LaBeouf Mia Goth Gets Rocked ... Shows Off Engagement Ring

3/17/2016 6:46 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0317-shia-labeouf-fame-01Shia LaBeouf dropped strong hints, and now Mia Goth is confirming they've made it official ... by sporting a big ole diamond engagement ring in public.

Shia and British actress Mia were out running errands -- already looking like an old married couple -- in L.A. on Wednesday. The rock on her left ring finger was in clear view.

They've been together since 2012, and he recently referred to her as his "fiancée." But you know how Shia is -- until you see the ring, hard to know if it's REALLY a thing.
