The American rapper Lil Uzi Vert (26) is known not only for his music but also for his eccentric jewelry, tattoos, and other striking ‘decorations’. Still, long gold necklaces with a dollar sign are no longer enough for him: on social media, Lil Uzi Vert shows off his new ‘piercing’, an 11-carat pink diamond worth about 20 million dollars.
Lil Uzi Vert had previously announced on Twitter that he had bought a pink, oval-shaped diamond from the famous and renowned jeweler Elliot Eliantte. “I’ve been paying for a natural pink diamond from Elliot for years now. This one Stone cost so much I’ve been paying for it since 2017. That was the first time I saw a real natural pink diamond,” the rapper wrote at the time.
He immediately set his sights on the gem, although he had to be patient for a long time. “It took me a long time to get this amount together,” wrote Lil Uzi Vert, who also indicated that the diamond cost more than all his cars and his house put together.
Implanted on forehead
But where do you keep such a valuable jewel? Lil Uzi Vert apparently seemed like a smart idea to have the stone implanted on his forehead. Anyone who wants to be beautiful must suffer pain: “beauty is pain,” the rapper writes in a video in which he shows his latest accessory.
He also comes with a matching diamond ring and a pair of large ornate sunglasses. “A long rod was just put in because I just had it pierced, and there is swelling. When that swelling subsides, I get a short rod so that the stone no longer moves.”
At the request of his followers, the rapper showed how ‘shaky’ the piercing is still by moving the diamond back and forth with his finger. His fans react with a lot of amazement to the images.
