Sometime ago, we got the heads up that Kanye was going all out on a jewelry line and funny as it sounds, he was working on a line that’s just been released. Yesterday to be precise.
“I wanted to create something that represented timeless love,” explained Kanye West to Vogue US.
With the necklaces going for at least $4,810 (small) we already know what the client list is like. The Yeezy designer’s first jewelry collection is made up of a line of sculptural gold rings and heavy chain pendants. There was a collaboration with the Jeweler Jacob Arabo, and the 12 pieces were inspired by 14th-century Florentine art, such as Donatello’s bas-relief portraits, and evoke a certain classical romance.
The maternal portraits and even the medallion style cut of the pendants are definitely a standout from your trendy picks of jewelry out there but contrary to our expectations, we think this was well thought out… I mean with timeless love behind it all, what could be more timeless than it’s 14th century style? And maternal love?
Naturally, they’ve been heavily test-driven by his wife, Kim Kardashian West, who began wearing them off the Yeezy Season 4 runway and has styled them every which way!
For those whose style would embrace this particular type of jewelry, they are available at yeezysupply.com and Jacob & Co.
