Foremost American rapper, songwriter, record producer, fashion designer, and entrepreneur, Kanye Omari West popularly known as Kanye West has expanded his Yeezy fashion empire.

Kanye last September unleashed juicy announcements about his foray into jewellery but just recently released pieces from his Yeezy Jewellery Collection.

Kanye in his words said, “Well, the time has come; ’Ye just launched a series of gold chains and rings made in collaboration with Jacob the Jeweler’s Jacob Arabo. According to Vogue, the 12-piece range culls inspiration from 14th-century Florentine art and was first modelled by Kim Kardashian during YEEZY Season 4. “I wanted to create something that represented timeless love”.

Just a few weeks after debuting his Calabasas collection that sold out in seconds, Kanye launched a 12-piece jewellery collection made in collaboration with Jacob & Co., which appeared to be his first dive into the jewellery business.

The pieces are all inspired by the 14th-century Italian art and they include $4,000 priced rings, $10,000 necklaces, and bracelets ready to be snagged at $9,000.

Speaking during an interview, Kanye said, “I wanted to create something that represented timeless love.”
