Floyd "Money" Mayweather may have outdone himself once again in the field of throwing around his namesake, as TMZ reports the boxer has spent an eye-widening $5.3 million on various pieces of jewelry during a recent shopping spree in Los Angeles. It happened on November 14th, at the Beverly Hills shop of Peter Marco, known as a "jeweler to the stars," and who was able to satisfy Mayweather's expensive tastes in chains, bracelets, and rings.
More precisely, his jewelry tab included a pear-shaped fancy yellow VVS ring weighing 30 carats and priced at $2.3 million dollars, and surprisingly enough that wasn't even the most expensive item on the list. That would be the diamond bracelet he paid $2.5 million for, then to round things off there was a two-pound yellow gold Cuban necklace and a trio of watches all totaling $500,000.
Together, the haul cost a good $5.3 million, which is of course far from being the most Mayweather has ever spent at one time. He's reported to have once purchased a ring and chain worth a combined $10 million, and he even once spent $18 million on a single watch. So this was more like a casual shopping day for him – the likes of which he evidently expects to be able to afford into the foreseeable future, with his big (and extremely lucrative) New Year's Eve fight with Tenshin Nasukawa approaching soon (so he says), as well as talk of a payday in the NINE figures if he's able to swing a "superfight" with MMA superstar Khabib Nurmagomedov sometime next year.
And just in case you've been harboring an image in your mind of Floyd paying for all this mega-expensive jewelry with cash, unfortunately it doesn't appear to be how it happened in reality – instead, he's reported to have cut Marco a check for the jewelry.
