PARIS — Get Pharrell Williams talking about fine jewelry and he's as clear and emphatic on the subject as the giant diamond solitaire ring on his finger — "D flawless, no inclusions, colorless," he points out.
"It's a costly habit of mine," Williams said, also showing off a Casio watch, N.E.R.D.-logo belt buckle and key fob, all pavéd in diamonds — not to mention the gold-plated BlackBerry and cell phone stuffed in his pockets. "It's fun to do it on Louis Vuitton's dime for once."
