Tyler, The Creator added a new piece of jewelry to his collection to commemorate his Grammy-nominated IGOR album. Celebrity jeweler Ben Baller posted a couple photos of the luxurious piece along with the video clip of him gifting the chain to Tyler on Tuesday (Dec. 10).
The glistening pendant is a figurehead of Tyler’s IGOR alter-ego, which includes the blonde wig, black sunglasses, and all. Baller says the beautiful work of art is made up of 18K gold and includes colorful cognac, chocolate, blue, black and white diamonds to match Tyler’s exact complexion.
Ben has been the “I THINK” rapper’s go-to jeweler throughout his career, as Baller says he’s never gotten a custom piece from anybody else in the business. “Thank you Tyler for always trusting me. Even though I hate your guts in person, but I also LOVE YOU! I have seen you grow into something insane. Congrats on all your success. You deserve it 100 percent,” he wrote.
Check out the luxe piece below.
Today felt like a good day to shut down the internet. FYI: You can’t just book me to make you a piece. Out of 100 people who ask, I say NO 100 times. I have to super fuck with you to get down on a piece in this day. Tyler has never got a piece from anyone else. This is my last piece of 2019. My last piece of this decade. So I knew I had to fucking crush it. I’m not even gonna get into specifics. Just know it’s heavy as fuck. Made out of 18K gold and has a lot of cognac, chocolate, blue, black and white diamonds. The gradient levels of brown to match Tyler’s skin tone and especially when different shades of light hit it? –. The overall aesthetic and how you can kinda see the curvature of the nose but also can’t see it. This is why I can’t just make that Mickey Mouse shit you see all over Instagram. A shout out will not get you a better price. It will get you blocked from ever getting work from me. Thank you Tyler for always trusting me. Even though I hate your guts in person, but I also LOVE YOU! I have seen you grow into something insane. Congrats on all your success. You deserve it 100% Luck had nothing to do with where I am today, this was all meant to be. #IGOR #BenBallerDidTheChain #IFANDCO
