DO DIAMOnDs buRn?
An Ohio woman who paid $5 at a yard sale for a LeBron
James pendant she thought was costume jewelry has found out it’s worth nearly $10,000.
Vaneisha Robinson, a 20-year-old amateur boxer in James’ hometown of Akron, says she used to wear the basketball jersey-shaped pendant to high school when she didn’t know its value. Then she had it appraised. Gemologist Jerry Ehren
wald says the 14-karat white gold pendant sports more than 2 carats of diamonds.
The No. 23 jersey reads “King” on the front and “James” on the back.
She has listed the jewelry on eBay. Cleveland fans want to start the bidding at a wooden nickel.
