Known internationally for his affinity for bold diamond jewelry, the Grammy-nominated hip-hop recording artist and legend Slick Rick recently decided to add a new piece to his collection of diamond cross pendants. Always the stylistic visionary, the famed rapper approached the master jewelers at Avianne & Co. with a new concept for the otherwise traditional diamond cross.

A video of the making of Hip Hop Legend Slick Rick’s 50 carat diamond cross pendant can be viewed below. The piece took over a week to set and was picked up personally by slick rick, at our store location in New York city.

Initially commissioning the design team with a simple yet elegant 14K White Gold Mens Diamond Cross adorned with the finest square princess cut diamonds, "Rick the Ruler later" returned to the shop in Manhattan’s famed Diamond District with another request that would add a 14K white gold plate set with a brilliant array of round cut VS quality diamonds behind the existing cross.

With an astounding market value of $75,000, every step of the design and construction of the solid gold diamond cross was done in-house at the jeweler’s storefront and design workshop in New York City. The piece weighs over 250 grams of 14k Solid White Gold, with over 50 carats of micro pave set VVS1 diamonds. The diamond cross was laser-soldered to a solid gold franco chain hand crafted in solid 14k white gold.

Known internationally for their craftsmanship and devotion to their clients, the personalized service provided by the master jewelers at Avianne & Co is what distinguishes them in today’s jewelry market.
