Lil Uzi Vert Wants to Implant a Pink Diamond in His Face

Lil Uzi Vert revealed his plans to have a natural pink diamond implanted in his forehead in a series of tweets yesterday. According to the rapper, he started forking over millions for the diamond back in 2017 and has just finished the payments. He purchased the diamond from Elliot Eliantte, the jeweler known to create pricey pieces for Migos and Travis Scott among others.

The cost appears to be significant; Uzi stated in replies to fans that the diamond is his favorite and most expensive purchase yet, worth more than his multi-million dollar car collection and his home.

He also shared an image of the 10, almost 11 carat, marquise-cut diamond held against his forehead, which appears to be roughly a U.S. quarter coin’s diameter in height.

In other high-priced jewelry news, Gucci Mane revealed an impressive $2.5 million USD chain last month, which is rumored to be the largest Cuban link ever made.
