Los Angeles, CA – Tyler, The Creator rewarded himself with an IGOR-inspired necklace that came with a $275,000 price tag, according to TMZ. The chain is highlighted by an iced-out pendant of his alter ego.
Celebrity jeweler Ben Baller, who made the blinged-out piece, said it’s comprised of 18K gold. Tyler’s new jewelry features multiple types of diamonds, including blue, black, white, chocolate and cognac. The clasp is a diamond-encrusted “T” and “IGOR” is inscribed on the back of the pendant.

Today felt like a good day to shut down the internet. FYI: You can’t just book me to make you a piece. Out of 100 people who ask, I say NO 100 times. I have to super fuck with you to get down on a piece in this day. T has never got a piece from anyone else. This is my last piece of 2019. My last piece of this decade. So I knew I had to fucking crush it. I’m not even gonna get into specifics. Just know it’s heavy as fuck. Made out of 18K gold and has a lot of cognac, chocolate, blue, black and white diamonds. The gradient levels of brown to match T’s skin tone and especially when different shades of light hit it? 🤧. The overall aesthetic and how you can kinda see the curvature of the nose but also can’t see it. The VVS1 D color 1 carat solitaire earring in IGOR’s ear tho 👀😤 Thank you T for always trusting me. Even though I hate your guts in person, but I also LOVE YOU! I have seen you grow into something insane. Congrats on all your success. You deserve it 100% Luck had nothing to do with where I am today, this was all meant to be. #IGOR #BenBallerDidTheChain #IFANDCO
In an Instagram video posted by Baller, the jeweler points out the details of the expensive necklace and how the colors appear when hit by sunlight. He also noted Tyler’s pendant was his last work of the decade.
Tyler’s IGOR album sold 164,866 units in its first week, much to the dismay of DJ Khaled. The project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned him a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album.
