Given $d\in \mathbb{N}$, we establish sum-product estimates for finite, nonempty subsets of $\mathbb{R}^{d}$. This is equivalent to a sum-product result for sets of diagonal matrices. In particular, let $A$ be a finite, nonempty set of $d\times d$ diagonal matrices with real entries. Then, for all $\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FF}_{1}<1/3+5/5277$,
$$\begin{eqnarray}|A+A|+|A\cdot A|\gg _{d}|A|^{1+\unicode[STIX]{x1D6FF}_{1}/d},\end{eqnarray}$$ which strengthens a result of Chang [‘Additive and multiplicative structure in matrix spaces’,
Combin. Probab. Comput.16(2) (2007), 219–238] in this setting.
