Honoring the life and legacy of Nipsey Hussle, Charlamagne tha God is giving the late West Coast legend’s longtime girlfriend Lauren London a very special piece of jewelry from renowned jeweler Greg Yuna. Specifically, London is receiving a striking pendant with Nipsey Hussle’s face on it as a gift.

“I originally wanted to make a tribute piece regardless of being approached, but to make one with this purpose was even more fulfilling,” Greg Yuna tells us, sharing some insight into his motivations for this particular creation.

“I had to find the best picture of him that I thought would be most suitable and iconic,” Yuna explains, breaking down how he created Charlamagne’s special gift for Lauren London. “Then we make a cad and spend tedious endless hours on the computer trying to get as much detail as possible in so we can print it on a state of the art 3D printing machine. Finally, we cast it in gold and laser in the tattoos and do the finishing touches including the hand-selected full cut diamond in his ear.”

“The paisley on the back was a symbolic depiction of his roots and a lot of what he represented,” Yuna adds, sharing the message he wants to convey with this piece. “‘God will rise’ is what his name means and I think that says it all.”

Although Yuna can only recall one in-person encounter with Nipsey Hussle, he says he has the “utmost respect” for the West Coast legend, praising him as a “phenomenal artist” whose musical legacy will thrive forever. “Even from one interaction you can tell he was a beautiful impression,” he reflects.
