Over the last decade, Justin Bieber has expertly made the transition from teen pin-up to adult pop music titan. With hit songs like “Baby,” “Sorry” and “Peaches,” the Canadian singer has proven he is truly the modern-day prince of pop. While winning over the hearts of young girls around the world, he has attracted just as much attention for developments in his personal life as he has for his music. The 27-year-old can’t make a move without a camera in tow, and as a result, Bieber has become renowned for his carefree personal sartorial choices. Since arriving on the scene as a viral sensation, he has evolved from a well-dressed youngster to a trendsetting adult, influencing a generation of followers with a street style that mixes elements of grunge, hip-hop and skater fashion. And Justin Bieber’s jewellery looks have, too, evolved along the way.
The Biebs has been working with stylist Karla Welch since 2011, who says there’s a “freedom” to working with the pop star, and that he loves experimenting with his looks. “He likes people to bring inspiration to him, but he’s super hands-on with the fashion,” she said. “He loves it… and he knows what he wants to wear.”
This approach has also led to a wider use of diamonds in his wardrobe, both on and off the red carpet. Whether he’s sporting a blinging watch or dazzling earrings, Bieber is never one to go overboard on his jewellery. That said, he always knows how to add a sprinkling of shine to make his looks less relatable and a bit more aspirational. The hitmaker already has two Grammy Awards to his name, but with a massive eight nominations at this year’s ceremony, all eyes are on Bieber to see what he’ll sport on music’s biggest night.
Read on for Justin Bieber’s jewellery looks that have stood above the rest.
Rolex Royalty at the “Justin Bieber’s Believe” Premiere
Bieber has amassed a jaw-dropping collection of luxe watches throughout his career, starting early on in 2013 with a stunning Rolex President, a style named after the high volume of world leaders and diplomats who have sported it. Proving that younger successes can also rock it, for the premiere of his Justin Bieber’s Believe documentary, Bieber put on a yellow gold Day-Date President watch which featured an aftermarket round diamond-set bezel, baguette diamonds on the champagne-colored dial and diamond dial markers for an extra touch of flair. Its retail value? A whopping $56,000.
Bieber complimented the stunning piece with a bundle of bling that included a pair of diamond huggie earrings and two long diamond Cuban link chains—one with the signature Versace Medusa detail. Who said diamonds can’t also be a boy’s best friend?
Sparkling Streetwear at a 2018 Hillsong Church Service
Even when heading to church for a Sunday service, Bieber makes sure to pull out all the stops. At first glance, it’s hard to look beyond the star’s sagging basketball shorts, raised socks and bright-colored sneakers. But his love for diamonds was definitely on display thanks to a white graphic tee showing a bunny ice skating on top of a shiny diamond, as well as a blinding piece on his left wrist. To balance out a look that feels more appropriate for the court than for worship (disheveled blonde locks included), he paired the mundane ensemble with a timepiece fully set with glistening diamonds. Hailing from famed Swiss luxury watchmaker Patek Philippe, this custom Nautilus 5711/1A is made in stainless steel then aftermarket set with white round diamonds covering every square millimeter. With a price tag of around $300,000, it’s no wonder he offset the opulent timepiece with some more basic items from his closet for an everyday stroll around New York City.
Shining Statement Jewellery Look at the “Justin Bieber: Seasons” Premiere
Bieber’s fashion influence was only heightened by his 2018 marriage to model Hailey Baldwin, and the two have been one of Hollywood’s biggest ‘It couples’ ever since. While Hailey regularly hits the red carpet in gorgeous gowns, Justin is often known for foregoing formal wear to stay true to his skater vibe, such as at the 2020 premiere of his Justin Bieber: Seasons YouTube docu-series.
He donned a white crewneck sweater, pink trousers and backwards baseball cap. But to maintain an elevated sense of style, he made an “iced-out” necklace the focal point of his ensemble. The Jadelle of Beverly Hills piece is white gold, covered in approximately 65 carats of VVS colorless diamonds, and similar to a traditional Cuban link. The diamond chain was gifted to Bieber by his generous wife and could have cost over $200,000.
Charming Cartier at the 2015 American Music Awards
Putting a fashionable spin on his regular attire, the Biebs arrived at the 2015 American Music Awards in a stylish take on the laidback ‘jeans and t-shirt’ uniform. He sported an oversize Nirvana t-shirt and a pair of distressed skinny jeans to give him a bit of a rock edge as he was first trying to distance himself from his child star past. While it paired nicely with his Kurt Cobain-inspired ‘do at the time, to keep from going full ‘90s grunge, Bieber added in a bit of cool glamour with the help of Cartier. His tattoo-covered left arm, (which includes a diamond tattoo), also featured the French luxury jeweler’s classic 18 karat Yellow Gold and Diamond Love Bracelet, and iconic pavé-set piece with two carats of diamonds and a retail price of $44,000. Because you can’t be an A-list pop star without a bit of bling.
Eye-Catching Earrings at the 2021 Metropolitan Museum of Art Gala
Bieber had not made an appearance at fashion’s most high-profile event since 2015, and to make his Met Gala return in 2021, he walked alongside his wife Hailey in an eye-catching black tuxedo and wide-legged pants by his own label, La Maison Drew, an off-shoot of Drew House, the clothing line he founded in 2017. With this being the one night for celebrities to dress their very best, the music sensation elevated his ensemble with some subtle ice on his ears thanks to a pair of Jacquie Aiche mini diamond Hoop earrings. The diamond-studded ear huggers from the Egyptian-American jewellery designer added the perfect hint of glint to his chic look.
