Reggaeton singer and rapper De La Ghetto turned to Avianne & Co., an elite custom designer jeweler, to produce his latest jewelry set, a project that took two weeks to complete and cost more than $35,000.
Avianne & Co. recently presented De La Ghetto with two Jesus head pendants that feature micro pave settings, two rope chains and a custom cross.
The custom cross that De La Ghetto ordered features 75-carat gold-colored diamonds in a 14-karat yellow gold setting. The piece weighs about 6.7 grams.
The 14-karat yellow gold Jesus head pendants are adorned with white diamonds using the micro pave technique, a little-known method of intricately setting small gemstones in fine jewelry. The technique involves placing diamonds so closely together that they are “kissing each other.
Avianne & Co.'s designers are equipped with an extraordinary skill set, allowing them to create world-class jewelry on an unprecedented level,” said George Avianne. “Much of their expert knowledge is shared by only a handful of people across the country.
In recent years, Avianne & Co. has seen a spike in jewelry featuring religious imagery for men and women alike. Pop singer Ciara owns an 18-karat gold Jesus pendant, which she wore for photos featured in a recent issue of Harper’s Bazaar.
To complete his look, De La Ghetto sought out the custom jeweler for a red-dial, 18-karat gold Rolex President watch without diamonds on which he spent approximately $15,000.
De La Ghetto is a regular customer of Avianne’s, having previously chosen its services to create iced-out diamond rings and custom diamond chains.
