Here’s My $8 Million* Diamond

Here it is … the first photo of the 4.09 carat blue diamond Drew Brees bought for $8.1 MILLION.
It’s pretty incredible … but the QB says he overpaid by roughly $6 MILLION!
TMZ Sports broke the story … Brees purchased the stone as an investment from Vahid Moradi of CJ Charles jewelers in San Diego back in 2015 — but says he was completely duped.
Brees claims he trusted Moradi to get him the best prices on rare stones in the hopes of selling them for a profit at a later date.
Brees says in 2018 he had the stone appraised by an independent specialist who told him the diamond was only worth $2 million when he bought it … and it has since increased in value to $3.75 mil.
There’s more … Brees is also furious over pink diamond earrings he bought in 2015 for $975k — claiming Moradi used pink paint behind the diamond setting to make the stone appear more “pink” than it’s true color.
Brees says the pink stones are only worth $176k.
In total, Brees says he spent $15 mil with Moradi over the years — but his stones are only worth roughly $6 mil … a $9 million loss.
For his part, Moradi says he did nothing wrong — and claims Brees has no one to blame but himself.
