Taking the form of Archangel Michael.

Ben Baller recently took to Instagram to unveil his latest diamond masterpiece. Special-ordered from Tyga — perhaps to celebrate his Summer banger “Goddamn” — the chain takes the form of Archangel Michael in the textbook pose of vanquishing Satan.

This chain metaphorically symbolizes Tyga’s approach to dealing with haters, as he steps all over the doubters. Keeping with his label, “LK” (Last Kings) can be seen in the background of Saint Michael. While there is no exact carat weight of diamonds on the chain, we can see a number of large baguette-cut diamonds at the bail, sword, and on the wings, while pear diamonds make up the halo; there is over 2kg worth of 18k gold in the chain and pendant alone. Other details in this chain include diamonds at the side of the flooded Cuban-link chain and a bible/cross locking clasp.

Ben Baller commented on the chain as being a “true masterpiece” that makes it onto the “Sotheby’s radar.” He then went on to explain: “It’s a different type of drip. Like no other jeweler is in my rearview for the last few years. In fact, I’m not even doing pieces for under $250,000 USD unless you’re a super close friend of mine.”

Tyga is estimated to have dropped over $500,000 USD with Ben, with $400,000 USD going towards the pendant/chain combo, and the remaining $100,000 USD going towards 10 team chains.

Who just dropped $500,000 on a custom diamond Ben Baller chain? Tyga … TYGAAAA???? Yes. Tyga. Some of the highlights: I set pear shaped solitaire VVS clarity diamonds in the halo of St Michael. I added baguettes to the feathers of his wings and even baguette diamonds on his sword. I even iced out the sides of his custom 1 of a kind Cuban link(I made the links with 2 different sized diamonds with the big diamonds having a pavé set border) The devil being stepped on represents satan aka the haters have been defeated and also specifies that @tyga had the biggest comeback of 2018 ?? #Tyga even copped matching pieces for his team. You know who to hit when it comes to making custom genuine fine jewelry. @ifandco NO CVD or HPHT or CE diamonds ever. #IFANDCO or nothing at all ?
