Kanye West just dropped a 12-piece jewelry collection with Jacob Arabo (a.k.a. Jacob the Jeweler) — you might remember him from such Kanye songs as “Touch the Sky”: “… I went to Jacob an hour after I got my advance…”
In 2008, Arabo was sentenced to prison for his involvement in a money laundering investigation, but he has since come out “more focused than ever” and continues to supply a gaggle of A-listers with his diamond brooches, Epic X Chrono watches and white gold wedding rings — so this collaboration is simply a diamond-encrusted feather in his cap.
West was focusing on his wildly successful Pablo pop-up shops and Yeezy collection this past year — but in what has to be the most adorable expression of love for his wife Kim, the rapper told Vogue that he wants this jewelry collection to represent timeless love. He dubbed this collaboration “a letter to my wife from a past life that can live past our lives.”
The baubles are expensive, the line features yellow gold chains and rings that can set you back as much as $13,360 USD. Before you scoff, Vogue has compared the jewelry to “14th-century Florentine art, such as Donatello’s base-relief portraits,” and suggests the pieces “evoke a certain classical romance.”
… We kinda think they look like Catholic Saints embalmed in gold pendants, but you be the judge.
