Hip Hop Jewelry News: Kanye West’s Kanye West Watch

January 17, 2011 at 5:45 pm

Kanye West’s name seems to pop up every time we go to write an article about hip hop jewelry. He’s always doing something wild and unheard of that catches everyone’s attention. His publicist must have the easiest job in the world.

This blog will be no exception to that rule. West was recently spotted with a $180,000 gold diamond watch. That in itself is impressive, but it isn’t just any watch; the diamonds on its face are arranged to look like Kanye’s… well, his face – complete with trademark sunglasses.

Known for setting and popularizing a ton of hip hop jewelry trends such as Jesus pendants and even diamond teeth, this might just be his most extravagant diamond jewelry purchase to date. The custom watch features 8 carats of yellow, black, brown and white diamonds.

Following Kanye’s lead, other entertainers have also begun to seek out custom made watches. Last month, chart-topping R&B singer Usher custom created a one-of-a-kind timepiece with his face on it for a cool $250,000.

It’s clear that the phenomenon of custom jewelry is beginning to take hold of the celebrity world. After all, when you can have any piece of jewelry in the world, why not make it unique?
