Hip Hop Pendants
Hip Hop Pendants have defined the world of hip hop for over thirty years. From iconic symbols to downright crazy examples of hip hop jewelry gone wild, this is where you will find an eclectic mix of the Hip Hop Pendants that TraxNYC has been selling and custom-manufacturing over the years.
This Lazarus pendant is a rarity, but not one that is exclusive to the hip hop jewelry market. Saints have been celebrated in the form of jewelry by the Christian faith for hundreds of years, and Hip Hop Pendants are simply carrying on that long and worthy tradition. As with most hip hop jewelry, this is a unique, niche piece. It will never go mainstream due to a lack of celebrity endorsements.
The black diamond Jesus is regarded by many as the hip hop jewelry icon of this decade. First made truly popular by Jay Z at the 2010 VMAs, it has dominated the market ever since. Then, when everyone jumped on the black diamond Jesus trend, it spawned a black diamond revolution throughout the industry as a whole.
Another hip hop mega trend that has seen better days is the skull head pendant. This particular skull is fully detailed with hand set pave diamonds set in a specialized pattern across the piece. The "honeycomb" pattern puts the diamonds shoulder to shoulder with no gaps in between - that way you can have a smooth diamond surface that will refract light like a lit fire cracker.
This Custom Zodiac Pendant was hand made for a hip hop celebrity whose name we are not allowed to mention, sorry to say. Spinning Hip Hop Pendants were a top trend back in the early years of the new millennium, but they didn't go very far because they were never considered to be respectable pieces of hip hop jewelry.
