The polarity of the savage and yet all-too-civilized man sculpted on a chain pendant. Possibly also self-referential because of his beastly nickname, Tee Grizzley.  A stunning piece of rapper jewellery, it features over 100 carats of VVS Diamonds on solid gold, fetching a reported price of close to half a million dollars!

He might not be going for the bling, but he definitely has something to say with his jewellery so he deserves a shout.
In an interview when he was asked about his clock chains he reportedly replied:
"The reason why I wear this clock is because it represents time being the most important element in our life." "Time can't afford to be wasted, but not only that, but God only gave us one life. Each minute we live, we got to live each second to our best value. Time brought us up in here, and time can also take us out."
Deep stuff.
