Kanye West Releases Yeezy Jewelry Collection
After the surprise release of his adidas x Calabasas collection last week, Kanye West surprises fans once again with the release of his very first Yeezy jewelry collection. In collaboration with Jacob Arabo, better known to the hip-hop world as Jacob the Jeweler, this Yeezy jewelry collection features 12 brand new pieces that range from pendant necklaces to bracelets and rings.
Inspired by 14th-century Florentine art, the Yeezy jewelry collection is made up entirely of 18K gold. With pieces available for both, men and women, the collection serves as a representation of timeless love while highlighting Donatello’s bas-relief portraits.
The launch of this jewelry collection comes to no surprise for a lot of Kanye West fans, as the "Famous" rapper announced his plans to venture into the jewelry business back in September of last year. Even Kanye's wife, Kim Kardashian, teased one of the jewelry pieces from this collection way before today's release, when she wore the pendant necklace to the Yeezy Season 4 fashion show in New York City.
In related Kanye news, the "Ultralight Beam" rapper recently reached another milestone in his career as his last album, The Life of Pablo, became the first album to go platinum strictly off of streams.
