Two Reasons Why Hip Hop Jewelry Becomes So Popular

Tuesday, August 30th, 2016

hip hop jewelry

Hiphop jewelry is the term given to jewelry that is flashy and has plenty of bright stones on it. It was made popular by rap stars like 50 Cent, Eminem and Dr. Dre. While the jewelry that they wear usually costs thousands of dollars, now anyone can afford iced out jewelry. You may wonder what is the fascination and why everyone is buying it. To answer that, we have to dig deep and rediscover the roots of this lasting trend.

First and foremost, it is a status symbol. Hip hop jewelry is made with large amounts of precious metal like gold and platinum then laced with rare gemstones such as diamonds, rubies and sapphires. Because of this, it is very expensive, more so than most other types of jewelry. This makes it a status symbol because only a select few can afford to wear it. Within hip hop, it is a symbol of success and hard work. Not many fans and stars come from rich backgrounds. Most of us have to work hard and ride out the hustle in hopes of a brighter future. Along the way, some hip hop jewelry is a reward as well as a constant reminder of how far we’ve come.

It is a fashion statement as well. Much like the clothes you wear and the shoes you buy, hip hop jewelry says a lot about you. With tons of designs to choose from, there is something that fits you style. Most bling exudes attitude. It screams out I am a unique individual and I don’t care what you think. This is why the stars keep buying bigger and crazier pieces, regardless of how ridiculous it looks. The bottom line is that is their preference and it reflects their unique personalities, anyone who objects probably can’t afford to buy it anyway.

Luckily for us and many others, hip hop jewelry doesn’t have to be expensive. It can be made with cheaper base metals like brass and sterling silver. The jewelry can be set with replica diamond stones instead of real diamonds. This makes it available to the masses and now you can buy hip hop jewelry without recklessly spending your hard earned dollars.
