Gauff Gifted Diamond Necklace By Doubles Partner Pegula

Gauff Gifted Diamond Necklace By Doubles Partner Pegula

by Nurein Ahmed

Tennis players competing at the Indian Wells Open who haven't received a package containing diamond jewelry might have to look for Jessica Pegula.

The World No. 5 has been actively promoting Gorjana's gift sets in the past few days. She recently gave compatriot Danielle Collins a gold necklace decorated with diamonds around the neck, featuring Collins' initials of her first name, D.

Collins teased those who were willing to buy her diamonds as a parting gift ahead of her retirement from professional tennis later this season. Pegula and Gorjana duly delivered the 24-carat gift.

Pegula, who was named the brand ambassador of jewelry brand Gorjana last October, has been donning an assortment of styles from the company's high-end jewelry collection when on the tennis court or at off-court red carpet events.

Gojana's headquarters are in Laguna Beach, California, 100 miles away from Palm Springs, where Pegula has been competing at the Indian Wells tennis tournament.

In fact, the six-time Grand Slam quarterfinalist made an appearance at the company's Palm Desert store before her opening match against Anna Blinkova. Pegula has since gifted the same set to fellow pros like Alycia Parks, Ashlyn Krueger, and, more recently, Coco Gauff.

Like Collins, Gauff shared a photo of the package and its contents on her Instagram stories, captioning the post, "Thank you @jpegula @gorjana" and adding heart emojis.

Gauff and Pegula have reunited in doubles in Indian Wells for their first tournament as a team this season. Although Pegula suffered an early upset in singles (lost to Blinkova), she is still in the doubles tournament.

The pair recorded a thrilling second-round win over Caroline Dolehide and Desirae Krawczyk to advance into the quarterfinal, where they will meet the team of Ena Shibahara and Asia Muhammad.

Having fell outside the Top 10 in doubles ranking, Gauff and Pegula are determined to get to a single-digit ranking in what looks like their final year as a doubles team.
