Drake’s $one hundred,000 Stone Island Pendant
October 2, 2018
Rappers and bling go together like Russian oligarchs and dealings with the US government and neither one present any signs of bucking the development. That mentioned, fairly than the usual diamond-encrusted crosses or gold chains worthy of the Titanic’s anchor, not less than Drake went for something somewhat nearer to his heart: Stone Island.
Drake’s been a fan of the sports and casualwear model for years to the purpose the place their sponsorship of his newest Boy Meets World tour was inevitable. It’s a good commerce; he’s barely ever seen out of their jumpers and jackets. Nevertheless, it’s unlikely that both expected what jeweller to the stars Ben Baller – who has worked with The Weeknd, Snoop Dogg and Kanye West amongst many, many others – created for the occasion.

In the event you didn’t even know the model existed, Baller’s Stone Island pendant would stay as much as its name. Set into 888 grams of gold, the pendant consists of black, inexperienced and canary yellow diamonds set into an oversized replica of the Stone Island Stone Island Jumpers Jackets logo. The stones reached a grand total of seventy nine carats which isn’t too much of a surprise given the size of the thing.
I made this #StoneIsland piece for The Boy during his #BoyMeetsWorldTour (@stoneisland_official was the main sponsor for Drake’s tour) 888 grams of gold total (custom hermes link) seventy nine carats in 💎s (Triple A black diamonds, green diamonds and pure canary diamonds). It is extremely difficult to combine inexperienced diamonds with a black diamond background. But WE DID THAT @ifandco We might have easily went white on white, but it surely wouldn’t have been as legendary. #OVO #MoreLife #IFANDCO #LightWork #Drake

Apparently Baller was contemplating going white on white moderately than the shaded design he lastly came up with, however it wouldn’t have had near the affect of the end outcome which has an estimated worth of $one hundred,000. Certain that’s a drop in the ocean for the artist, however we can’t help wondering how lengthy he can put on his new treasure before his neck begins hurting.
