Speaking to Rolling Stone, Simon Babaev of jeweler Eliantte & Co. outlined just how Lil Uzi Vert‘s now-infamous pink diamond was implanted into his forehead.

Apparently, the trend-setting project took four years to come to fruition with rapper paying off the $24 million USD price tag of the naturally colored stone in installments. “We didn’t think he was serious about it, but as he started making payments on the specific stone, he made it clear that he was very serious.” Babaev also assured fans that that implantation is as safe as any other piercing if maintained correctly, “We made sure that prior to getting anything done that Uzi brought someone in to consult on everything. We didn’t just do this randomly.”

Highlighting that Uzi’s body modification uses a specific mounting with a mechanism that clips and locks in place that was specifically engineered by the team at Eliantte & Co. The system also goes beyond standard stainless or surgical-grade steel, utilizing precious metals for a luxurious and safe implantation.
