Legendary king of Rap music, Tupac is still breaking records even in death, as his ring is been auctioned for $1 million.
The diamond-encrusted gold band is topped with a gold circlet studded with a cabochon ruby and two pavé-cut diamonds and was designed specially for Tupac after his release from jail and signing with Death Row Record label.
The star’s ring surpassed the estimated auction house price more than three times during the themed sale, making it the most valuable hip-hop artifact sold at an auction.
De La Soul’s Kelvin Mercer, a guest curator for the sale, spoke on the uniqueness of the ring on the Sotheby’s website.
He said,” What’s so special about this ring is that it shows him in a moment where he was not necessarily on the front lines as an artist, but just a man expressing his love for another person, and that’s beautiful to see”.
