When it comes to celebrity bling, even children are getting in on the act as famous parents start diamond jewelry collections for their kids. With social media putting the lives of many high-profile kids on display, it also brings attention to the extravagant gifts they receive from their parents. Cardi B and Kylie Jenner are just a few of the names who spoil their offspring with the sort of shining diamonds that would make even the most devout of jewelry aficionados drool.
Children are reflections of their parents, so it’s no surprise that stars who are known for their lavish lifestyles also deck out their kids to the nines. But in recent years, A-list parents have gone beyond designer duds and opened their wallets to also splurge on diamond pieces that would leave them standing out on any red carpet, yet alone on the school playground. As more and more kids are seen sporting stunning jewels, we take a look at some of Hollywood’s most iced-out youngsters.
Cardi B gave birth to daughter Kulture Kiari Cephus in 2018, and at only three years old, the toddler has already amassed one of the most insane collections of diamonds you’ll ever see. In a deleted screenshot posted on Cardi’s Instagram account from when Kulture was still a newborn, Cardi B showed a beautiful set of diamond stud earrings alongside a variety of mini diamond tennis bracelets. “Just spent a bag on my daughter, you know a bad bitch gonna spoil haa,” Cardi captioned in a text exchange with Pristine Jewelers asking for $80,000 for the lot. “If I’m iced-out my daughter gotta be too,” she added, celebrating the major purchase. “Yeup I’m bragging cause I bust my ass to do soo.”
As a first birthday gift for Kulture, whom Cardi B shares with Offset, the rapper purchased a diamond necklace featuring characters from the hit Netflix animated series “Word Party.” Created by New York jeweler Eliantte, the shining piece is made up of diamonds, white gold and enamel, and according to our in house fine jewelry expert, Grant Mobley, it’s estimated to cost close to $100,000.
In keeping with blinging birthday tradition, to celebrate Kulture’s second birthday, the mommy-and-me duo showed on Instagram their coordinating head-to-toe diamonds, including two full diamond-set Cuban link anklets, a more delicate anklet with Kulture’s name written in script and set with diamonds and a baguette diamond-covered Patek Philippe watch similar to her Mothers baguette diamond covered Audemars Piguet watch. The “Up” hitmaker said the timepiece was purchased from Pristine Jewelers as a gift from “one of [her] celeb friends.”
The following year, the star surprised her daughter with another charm necklace from Eliantte. The accessory featured pave-set diamonds and five charms: a Birkin bag, a Chanel logo, a Minnie Mouse design, the letter ‘K’ and a heart wrapped in a pink bow. According to Mobley, the piece has around 50 carats of pave-set diamonds and is worth close to $200,000.
Kylie Jenner also gave birth to her first child in 2018, daughter Stormi Webster, and the preschool-aged little one is already easily among tinsel town’s most fashionable names. Introducing Stormi to incredible jewels early on, the Kylie Cosmetics founder gave Stormi a diamond ring for Christmas in 2019 when she was still a wee one-year-old. Jenner posted a video holding up Stormi’s hand in front of the Christmas tree while her daughter wore a glimmering open ring with two enormous diamonds on each side.
That same year, Stormi’s dad Travis Scott gifted her with a brand new diamond necklace. Sharing a sweet video of Stormi running around the house, Kylie can be heard exclaiming, “Look at what your daddy got you girl!” In case there was any concern the toddler would outshine her mom, Scott surprised them with matching, massive diamond two stone rings in November. “Daddy got us matching rings,” Jenner captioned a photo of her and her mini-me’s new bling. According to Mobley, Jenner’s stones are estimated to be about five carats each, with an estimated value of around $400,000 total, while Stormi’s are estimated at one-and-a-half carats each, with an estimated value of around $45,000 total.
Blue Ivy, Daughter of Jay Z and Beyoncé
Considering Beyoncé and Jay-Z are music royalty, it was only a matter of time before their oldest daughter Blue Ivy would receive crown jewels of her own. Blue attended the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards alongside her mom, who was bathed in more than $20 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, including earrings and multiple diamond rings. But proving she can keep up with her superstar mother, the then-four-year-old had her own diamond tiara by the beloved celebrity designer. It’s no easy feat keeping up with a red carpet icon like Beyoncé, but if anyone can do it, it’s her very own daughter.
In honor of the child’s first birthday, her parents treated her to a custom-made $80,000 diamond-encrusted Barbie doll. “Nothing’s been too big or expensive for their little princess,” a source told The Sun about the specially customized toy, which is said to have included 160 diamonds set in white gold to look as if the Barbie itself is decked out in its own bling. “They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life. They work hard for their money and the first thing they want to spend it on is their baby girl.”
North, Daughter of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West
Kylie Jenner isn’t the only parent in her family who enjoys spoiling their kids. Kim also began giving her daughter North West shimmering gifts at a very young age. For her first birthday, the young girl received luxury diamond stud earrings from one of her mom’s favorite luxury jewelers, Lorraine Schwartz. And while the adorable studs weighed in at a relatively modest half-carat each, the exceptional quality of the diamonds still made them an unreal gift for a youngster. “I’m happy to be starting North off early—as a diamond girl,” Schwartz told E! News. “I’m obsessed with North.”
You know you’ve made it when the industry’s biggest jewelers are creating custom pieces for you, and now a slew of celebrity children have those sought after names on speed dial in their diamond-encrusted Fisher-Price phones.
