Kanye West Teams With Jacob The Jeweler For New Line

Kanye West has a passion for Jesus Christ evident

in his song “Jesus Walks” and now the religious figure can symbolically

walk with the producer/rapper at all times.

West and famed Jacob The Jeweler have joined

forces to produce a line of “religious-themed” jewelry, which includes

diamond studded Jesus pendants.

Presently, the pair released a lavish Jesus piece

for potential consumers to view. The gold piece features a crown of diamond-set

thorns on Jesus’ head, two sparkling diamond eyes and red rubies that form

tears flowing from the Savior’s eye.

Diamonds and other gems are sprinkled throughout

Jesus’ hair, beard and face to complete the shiny work of art. [To see

West and the jewelry merchant have yet to announce

a name for the line, but such details will be made public in the near future.

In the song “Jesus Walks,” which spawned

the union, West reveals his need for Jesus in his life. “God show me the

way because the devil [is] trying to break me down.”

Jacob Arabo is the jeweler of choice among Hip-Hop

celebrities. Arabo, a Russian immigrant, recently signed a licensing deal with

the NBA for the rights to place the NBA logo and all 29 teams on his famous

Five Time Zone watches.

After founding his company in 1981, Jacob’s

fortunes took off in the mid-1990’s when Faith Evans found his New York-based

store as she was seeking jewelry for her upcoming CD cover.

Later, she returned with her husband, the late

Notorious B.I.G., who became a loyal customer and recommended the jewelers creations

to numerous high profile friends in the entertainment business.
