XXXTentacion, despite being a controversial figure due to his widely publicized legal troubles, gained a cult following among his young fanbase during his short career with his depression- and alienation-themed music. He is no more around us, but the legacy and image of XXXTentacion will live on proudly around his mother’s neck. Thanks to a diamond-encrusted custom pendant that uncannily resembles the late rap star.
Eric the Jeweler told TMZ Hip Hop that Mr. Rugs, a popular Atlanta restaurant owner, purchased the pendant for XXX’s mother, Cleopatra Bernard, as a mark of his affection. The two are currently dating. Cleo had wished for a pendant to keep the “Moonlight” rapper in her thoughts.
Her boyfriend arranged it through Mavani Jewelry in New York City. Eric would not tell the price, but he did explain that the piece is made of 200 grams of gold, white diamonds, and more than 50 carats of blue sapphires, which were used to recreate XXX’s trademarked blue locks.
Eric used enamel paint to detail the 3D pendant to nail down the specifics of XXX’s face, right down to his face tattoos. This piece came out incredibly well, and the resemblance is uncanny.
The matriarch has been riding for her son all year, first assisting in the promotion of XXX’s Hulu-powered film “Look At Me” in March. Cleo told the outlet that she was convinced the film will be a worthy addition to XXX’s legacy. Now she has a new piece of jewelry to add to her collection.
