ARD ADZ & SHALLOW’s Windy Music Pendants.

The brixton twosome have been blessing the game with their music for a few years now, and it seems to have paid off for them, because they have now stamped their music label into the industry by having their label logo made into what seems to be  white gold and yellow gold pendants encrusted with both natural & black diamonds.

London rap group 6.7 have been lighting up the music scene lately with their music, and now it seems they have done the same with their jewellery.

J SPADES “Get Rich Together” pendant

Now we are getting down to the real game changers when it comes to pendants.

This solid gold pendant is not only lovely to look at, but the attention to detail is amazing, not to mention that the diamonds surrounding the pendant are from what we can see, at least half a carat each if not just under a carat. a regular 1 carat diamond can range from 1k upwards..now you do the math on that. Oh and don’t forget it is also flooded in the centre and along the outside edge.

Definitely a legendary pendant

GIGGS “SN1 pendant”

Giggs has had many variations of the SN1 pendant, but this is the latest and greatest.

Set in yellow gold are hundreds of half a carat diamonds, give or take, so you know very well that giggs knows what he’s doing when it comes to stones, none of these are diamond chips or pointers here, this is the real deal.

POTTER PAYPER “MOD” Pendant

We have given potter paper the number 1 spot, not because of the design of his labels pendant, but for the sheer work put into it, you can tell that it is an extremely heavy piece, rumour has it that its solid 18ct gold. Not only that, but it is filled with vs diamonds, and also black diamonds.

They spared no money making this beauty, would have definitely cost an arm and a leg.

The Legendary Roc-A-Fella Chain

The one pendant that gave me the inspiration to get into the jewellery business was the Roc-A-Fella records pendant.

It wasn’t the best pendant in the world, but it had some what of a classiness to it compared to the massive chains rappers wore and still ware in this era.

Not only was the pendant great to look at, but the label and artists that the chain was attached to were also extremely influential to me, such as Jay z, Kanye West, Dame Dash and much more.

Recently the Roc chain has made a come back, being gifted to artists and sportsmen by jay z himself, and frankly I’m happy it has.

Most recent, Dj Khaled was gifted with the last ORIGINAL Roc chain. Jay z gave him the chain after he signed a management deal with him.

I remember the time Dame Dash walked into a new york jewellery store and saw a Roc chain and went crazy, because he didn’t commission the chains to be sold, here is the video below

enjoy the greatness of the Roc-A-Fella records pendant.

The Love & Money Pendant

The Love & Money pendant was designed & made by Diamonds By Zeus.

This solid gold & diamond pendant is definitely an eye catcher, subtle yet flash.

The pendant design is a mixture of the British pound symbol attached to a heart, symbolising the link between the two (Love & money).

We attest that this is the perfect gift for both male and females, to be worn on a small chain on a day to day basis.

The Love & Money pendant retails for £300
