Charlamagne The God Gave Lauren London Some Nipsey Hussle Jewelry
Charlamagne The God just gave the late Nipsey Hussle's grieving girl Lauren London a shiny new pendant.
But this isn't a Kodak Black situation.
The pendant is of Nipsey's face.
Celebrity jewelry Greg Yuna broke down the piece in an interview with Hypebeast:
“I originally wanted to make a tribute piece regardless of being approached, but to make one with this purpose was even more fulfilling,” Greg Yuna tells us, sharing some insight into his motivations for this particular creation.
“I had to find the best picture of him that I thought would be most suitable and iconic,” Yuna explains, breaking down how he created Charlamagne’s special gift for Lauren London. “Then we make a cad and spend tedious endless hours on the computer trying to get as much detail as possible in so we can print it on a state of the art 3D printing machine. Finally, we cast it in gold and laser in the tattoos and do the finishing touches including the hand-selected full cut diamond in his ear.”
“The paisley on the back was a symbolic depiction of his roots and a lot of what he represented,” Yuna adds, sharing the message he wants to convey with this piece. “‘God will rise’ is what his name means and I think that says it all.”
