Life In St. Thomas For Derek and Hannah: It’s Like The 4th of July Every Day
CHARLOTTE AMALIE – It might surprise a lot of people that Supermodel Hannah Davis began her modeling career in St. Thomas to make extra money to buy tennis racquets.
Davis might have dreamed early of making the cover of Sports Illustrated, but if she did it was not to be the covergirl for the swimsuit edition of the magazine.
“[I] started modeling to buy tennis rackets,” Davis told E! Online. “It kiiinda grew from there.”
The St. Thomas native shot a commercial for DirecTV on her home island earlier this year, but she seems happiest relaxing at home in the beachfront West Indian Plantation House she shares with husband-to-be Derek Jeter.
And as with every young woman of means who is about to be married: it is about the rock. In this case, though, not Rock City, but the diamond on her ring finger.
Forevermark diamond expert Kristen Trustey said the round solitaire diamond on her hand is estimated at four to five carats.
“Assuming that Derek sprung for a center diamond of the highest quality in terms of clarity and color, I would estimate the value to be between $350-$450K,” Trusty said.
Being from Rock City St. Thomas, Davis is sure to know a spectacular diamond when she sees one.
