For years, the kings of cool have made statement pieces of jewelry part of their standard uniform, the number one piece being an impressive chain or chains depending on the occasion. 

From Run DMC’s gold ropes and Flavor Flav’s clock chains of the ‘80s to Kanye’s Jesus piece and Big Sean’s lion pendant, the trend has spanned over thirty consecutive years and does not seem to be budging anytime soon.

Take notice of these remarkable pieces and take a stab at how much these bad boys may have invested into them while you’re at it!
