Drake Made A Diamond Necklace Out Of 42 Engagement Rings
The “Hotline Bling” rapper, infamous for flaunting his money, just spent a fortune on a diamond necklace made of several pieces of diamond engagement rings.
The elaborate piece was made from 42 engagement rings that Drake had previously considered gifting to ladies who planned on marrying.
In the caption of his Instagram reel, famous jewelry designer Alex Moss noted that the bling is made up of “42 engagement rings, 351.38 carats in diamonds.”
Charlamagne Tha God Calls Drake’s Behavior ‘Maniac’
In a recent video on his “Hell of a Week” channel, radio host, Charlamagne called Drake out on his diamond necklace purchase.
“Drake got a new necklace made out of 42 engagement ring diamonds, each diamond is said to represent a woman he thought about proposing to,” Charlamagne explained per Page Six.
He then went on to call out the rapper on his “maniac behavior” while telling him “to let that hurt go,” as he compared his number of rings to basketballer Lebron James.
“Most of us, unless we’re J.Lo, find one, maybe two people that we want to propose to in a lifetime, but you had 42 different women that you wanted to propose to. And why do you buy a new ring every time? Why not buy one really good ring and wait until you find one really good woman to give it to, okay?”
Drake’s Necklace May Be Worth $12.5 Million
The “Rich Flex” rapper’s jewelry may be worth as much as $12.5 million, according to Page Six.
Diamond expert Zack Stone is quoted as saying that the necklace, which honors all the ladies Drake came close to proposing to, may be worth an insane amount of money.
“Drake’s ‘Previous Engagements’ necklace is a magnificent piece of jewelry and probably the most impressive we’ve seen since Kendrick Lamar wore his diamond crown of thorns headpiece during his Glastonbury headline set back in June,” the diamond expert told the media outlet.
“A beautiful piece like this is tough to evaluate, particularly without information about the quality, but it looks to be worth roughly $12.5 million,” the jewelry expert noted.
He went on to say that “pear-cut diamonds are a timeless, vintage cut that represents an emotional bond or connection,” implying that the rapper may be honoring rather than mocking his failed relationships with the piece.

Following Alex Moss’s Instagram reel, several fans expressed their thoughts on the rapper’s necklace.
In pointing out the number of times Drake almost went on his knees, a particular fan said, “42 times??? Drake needs a better therapist.” Another curious fan wrote, “I wonder which one was Rihanna’s?”
“This is the pettiest, most toxic, and most beautiful thing I’ve ever seen,” a fan noted.
Another fan was not having it when she said, ” the Americans starving, homeless, dying of disease in which they can’t afford meds or surgeries to treat or cure and he has seen fit to spend 13 million on this display of narcissism.”
Although it’s unknown to whom the diamonds were intended, the rapper has over the years been associated with several A-listers, including Rashida Jones, Tyra Banks, SZA, Julia Fox (before she dated Kanye West), and Rihanna.
The Grammy-winning musician is the father of 5-year-old Adonis, whom he had with former pornstar and French artist Sophie Brussaux.
