Kendrick Lamar’s Iconic Custom Crown Took 10 Months To Design And It Has Over 8,000 Diamonds | Photos

Kendrick Lamar’s custom Tiffany & Co crown of thorns, which he wore during his Glastofest set over the weekend, took 10 months to design and features over 8,000 pavé diamonds

Handcrafted by four artisans over a span of 10 months, and a total of 1,300 hours setting the thousands of diamonds, these expert craftspeople brought the design to life from 16 individual pieces that were assembled to form the final design.⁠

The custom-designed crown features over 8,000 diamonds totaling over 137 carats and was crafted from high-polished titanium. Each diamond on the crown was set by hand and the prongs were also handcrafted.⁠

The custom crown is engraved with “Mr. Morale”—a reference to Lamar’s latest and fifth studio album, Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers.⁠
