Last year, Ben Baller, jeweler to the stars, announced he would be giving up his duties as a custom diamond and gold provider to focus on other business ventures. But he can’t leave bling alone, the game needs him. The Cali-based entrepreneur recently hand-delivered a new piece and chain to Drake on tour in Manchester, England.

The charm features a fist-sized custom compass, the logo for Stone Island, which is flooded with black, green and canary yellow diamonds. Baller revealed the delivery on Instagram, also giving a little backstory on his relationship with Champagne Papi in the caption.

“I met @champagnepapi at the Apple Store in the Beverly center in 2008,” he started. “From that day on I fucked with The Boy heavy. I was picking him up from the airport, getting him cars, trees and showing him my city like a real big homie does. #SoFarGone dropped and shit hit the fan. Then #ThankMeLater, then #TakeCare and He would take me on tour to be apart of the show giving out chains to random girls in the audience. One time at a sold out show in San Jose, Drake forgot where we were because he screamed out “LA what’s good???!!!!” And that Bay Area crowd boo’d 😭LOUD😩. It felt like that southwest commercial, Wanna get away? I back stepped off that stage dumb fast 😂 In 2012 I started my family and he became the biggest superstar in the 🌎 and we lost communication…So 9 years later were here in Manchester U.K. to finally have our full circle moment. More life and more jewels to come bro.”

According to TMZ, the bling is in the $100,000 range and contains 880 grams of gold.

Ben recently provided iced-out chains for A$AP Ferg and Lil Uzi Vert.

Check out video of the chain below.
