COVID-19 may have taken over the world in the span of a few short months, and while we are staying at home to prevent the spread of the virus, that doesn’t mean that we should forget about the good things that are sure to come our way. To remind us of better and brighter—or in this case—shinier things, here are a few icy pieces that we know will help keep our mood up during these hard times!
Megan Thee Stallion may be relatively new in the rap industry, but with her increase in popularity and record sales, it's only natural for someone who's getting in the big leagues to cop a piece that shows off their style and status. Before the end of 2019, the rapper copped a white gold and flawless Baguette set, made by the King of Bling himself.
Lizzo has been active in the scene since 2013, and we couldn’t be happier when news of her copping her first grillz from Paul Wall surfaced. The singer slash rapper was live on Instagram when the package with icy goodness arrived, and the artist happily showed off her brand new fronts—a solid yellow gold set for her top row, and a gorgeous iced out drip set in rose gold for her bottom row.
Migos member Quavo is known for always being at the top of his game, and the emerald-cut diamond grillz that Johnny Dang made for the rapper last year was a definite major game-changer in the grillz industry. With each tooth looking like intricate church-windows, Quavo’s 16-piece $250K set is the first of its kind—a certified, one-of-one!
Patek Philippe is not just a luxury brand—it is an icon among icons when it comes to fine craftsmanship, design, and status symbol. It doesn’t come as a surprise at all that a timepiece made by the company is a must-have for royalty, dignitaries, and celebrities alike. The white gold Patek Philippe Nautilus, bustdown with 1,343 diamonds and boasting an 18k gold dial plate, is one of those pieces that have become a favorite among artists like Post Malone and DJ Khaled.
Producing some of the best timepieces in the market, watchmaker Audemars Piguet has long-since held its spot as a celebrity favorite, like other iconic brands such as Richard Mille, Patek Philippe, and Rolex, among many others. Iced out or not, the Royal Oak is one of those masterpieces, usually seen resting on wrists belonging to motorsport legends like Michael Schumacher, Kpop superstars like Lisa from BLACKPINK, and rap royalty Jay-Z.
Icy and shiny doesn't always have to mean expensive, but we can't help but add Katy Perry's grillz to this list of frosty goodness. Though the set only briefly appeared in the songstress' Dark Horse music video in 2014, the pink and white diamond-encrusted grill, paired with other precious gemstones, has left a clear mark on the grillz industry. Designed by Dr. William "Bill" Dorfman and created with the assistance of DaVinci Labs and XVI Karat Jewelers, the grill is the world's most expensive—confirmed by Guinness World Records to flash a price tag of $1M.
With no vaccine for the virus in sight yet, there's no way of telling when things will go back to normal or when we can all safely sit right next to each other to admire more iced-out pieces together. We hope these bustdown grillz and watches help bust down the Corona blues for you, though! Stay tuned for more, and more importantly, stay safe and healthy!
