Kanye West has been maintaining a low profile as of late, but today the “Gold Digger” rapper quietly launched his own line of jewelry as a companion to his various fashion offerings and Yeezy shoes.
A collaboration with Jacob Arabo of Jacob & Co., the 12-piece collection includes rings and necklaces that draw inspiration from 14th-century Florentine art such as the paintings of Donatello.
“I wanted to create something that represented timeless love,” West explains in an interview with Vogue.
You may have seen some of West’s pieces being worn by his significant other, as Kim Kardashian has been spotted wearing Kanye-designed jewelry over the past year, including at the MTV VMAs and the Yeezy Season 4 runway show during New York Fashion Week. Here’s a closer look at the necklaces she wore at the VMAs:
Yeezy’s bling is not for those on a budget; a chain and pendant sells for US$13,360, with other necklaces starting at US$4,810, while the cost of rings range from $1,530 to $9,610; you can find out more at Yeezysupply.com.
