T-pain got a lot of heat a few years back for his ‘big ass chain’. Hella disrespectful considering we were still in the recession. Hilarious though.

Now Ben Baller has created something just as gaudy and ignorant. Commissioned by The Hundreds, the celebrity jeweler set out to create the world’s most diamond-encrusted chain and he posted these flicks up on his instagram.

The celebrity jeweler states that 26 kilograms (approximately 57 lbs) of 18K gold are used in the chain

Additionally over 3,000 stones mark the rest of the chain ranging from 16 solitaire 1-carat VS1 E color diamonds and 2090 brilliant round solitaire diamonds ranging from .25 to .34 carats. The chain carries are suggested retail price of $3,115,000 USD.



Crazy! Hypebeast speculates this may be an April Fool’s hoax (yeah, probably) but if it isn’t, I think it’s a major win for the Asian community. We outshinin’ T-pain, dawg!
