Floyd “Money” Mayweather, Jr. is still celebrating his victory over Manny Pacquiao last month. And he’s doing so by engaging in his favorite past time: shopping.
This weekend, the world’s richest athlete decided he needed to up the bling factor, so he hit up the Diamond District in NYC, where he reportedly spent half a million dollars on jewelry … likely to go with his $150,000 Hermès crocodile bag he showed off last month.
According to the NY Post, Mayweather and his entourage visited a couple of shops on Saturday afternoon, one of which was a small kiosk called Flawless at the corner of 6th Avenue. Sources told the Post that the boxer dropped “hundreds of thousands of dollars” on watches at the location, which he has visited for the past eight years to buy, trade, and upgrade pieces. Soon after, Mayweather and Co headed to Pristine Jewelers NYC, where he showed up with a handwritten shopping list, which included a Cuban-link yellow-gold necklace for $35,000 and a diamond chain for $55,000.
This shopping trip was pretty extravagant to say the least. But it’s definitely not surprising. Mayweather has garnered a reputation for his wildly expensive taste and his need to stunt on the rest of the world, so god only knows what his next major purchase will be.
