About Guardian Angel Jewelry
The centerpiece of hip-hop jewelry is the pendant, because it sits around the center of the torso, attracting other’s attention. Pendants are made from many precious metals, but the most popularized is yellow gold, usually covered in precious gemstones such as diamonds, rubies, sapphires, or emeralds.
Originally made to be worn underneath the shirt, pendants such as crosses and angels were placed next to the heart on the chest, but as times have changed, trends have as well, moving to the new trend where the jewelry is out, rather than away. Hip-hop culture has brought upon the move to open neck jewelry, and the openness of expressing his/her religion on their chest. Pendants such as angels praying are ways to not only flash style and bling, but to also latently display their faith in a modern elegance.
Angel Pendants as Part of Hip Hop Jewelry and Culture
Hip-hop jewelry began in the ‘70s with DJ Kool Herc who introduced hip-hop to the world. Then, around the early ‘80s, hip-hop began evolving from an underground music scene to a mainstream form, with legends such as Kurtis Blow popularizing chains with oversized pendants. Rappers like Slick Rock and Run DMC also wore gold chains, furthering the scene for hip-hop jewelry, and by the time the ‘90s rolled in, hip-hop jewelry trends became that of Cuban link chains, platinum necklaces, and pendants to help differentiate themselves even more.
The ‘90s helped popularize not only chains and pendants/medallions, but also the stylish addition of adding diamonds to any jewelry item, whether it was earrings, rings, necklaces, grills, or pendants. Artists such as Jay-Z, Diddy (Puff Daddy; P. Diddy), Juvenile, and The Hot Boys all wore luxurious, blinged out fashionable jewelry laminated in diamonds. Like with gold chains, when it comes to diamonds, the more, the better. Diamonds are a sign of financial status, so the more iced out a piece of jewelry is, the higher the stature you sit among everyone. Most blinged out jewelry, such as charms, are usually filled with diamonds, if not, Cubic Zirconia (a laboratory produced replica) that still brings the same visual appeal, but at a much smaller cost.
By the time the ‘00s were here, artists were beginning to transition into wearing more pendants and medallions to represent their labels, sports, cartoons, and religions, usually covered in stones. Rappers have been seen to use different types of pendants to showcase their allegiances to certain labels, with some labels known to advertise their own branding, like Roc-A-Fella and Death Row, as well as artists on OVO wearing owl pendants, while others such as Meek Mill sporting Dream Chaser pendants.
Rappers such as Lil Jon have worn extensive pendants to show off their wealth and money. One that stands out amongst the crowd, was his five-pound pendant, specially designed by his Beverly Hills jeweler, Jason Arasheben. Lil Jon’s pendant was laced with 3,756 white diamonds, round-cut, being named the largest diamond pendant to date by the Guinness Book of World Records.
Angel Pendants as a Fashion Trend Today
As of today, the trend continues with more bling jewelry, such as delicate rope chains, to more customizable Cuban chains, Jesus Pieces, and angel pendant necklaces. Hip-hop jewelry is all about extravagance and expression of a luxurious lifestyle and character, so the more jewelry, the louder the expression. As for pendants, the larger and more decorated the pendant, the easier to be recognized and admired for your magnificence.
