Ben Baller’s IF & CO. has unveiled its latest madcap creation: an insane, Takashi Murakami-inspired chain made for the Colombian singer J Balvin.
Two of the pieces, confirmed as an official project between Baller and Murakami, have been made. Previously, Murakami had said he was interested in owning a piece similar to Balvin’s flower spinner chain, which was also created by Baller.
The new ice feature a 300-gram 18k white goal pedant body that arrives alongside a 400gram brushed and polished 18k white gold snake-cut Cuban link chain. Even more insane is that each piece boasts over 5,000 stones, including gemstones and VVS1 E/F color diamonds.
One of the chains will go to J Balvin while the other will remain with Murakami. It’s estimated that each chain cost around $560,000 to make.
