Hip Hop Jewelers: The Biggest Scammers in Hip Hop

Im a jeweler. Buy weight. Melee diamonds are worthless. If you buy under 1 carat you can get a decent price break by the carat. Buy gold and have your jeweler work the metals you provide. If a client provides the material i only charge my labor. Saves them a ton. And i don't mark my stuff up 1000% usually around 300%. Do my best to be as fair as possible with also making my wages. Take care.

@Anthony Smith cutting stones takes lapidary equipment. Look up Pixie Cab Machine. If you want to learn metal smithing start with a kit from Rio Grande jewelry supply. Get some copper sheet and wire to start bezel setting cabachons. Learning to solder is a big one. Controlling the heat is essential. I started with sterling silver working abalone shell. Now I’m using precious metals and fine gems. There are tons of avenues to take. Personally I went towards hip hop style jewelry to make for myself but the southwestern style is what sales the best. Turquoise, coral and lapis lazuli are big sellers. Got anymore questions hit me up. Be easy!

I find the topic interesting. To be clear, scamming a rapper by selling him/her fake jewelry is a different issue from their financial decision to spend their money on jewelry instead of prepping up for financial stability. The issue of showing off as part of the hip hop culture is not financially wise. However, this does not excuse the scammer.

As someone who owns 4 vintage Rolex watches ,it always stuns me when I see some rapper getting one customised with supposed diamonds , they are immediately devaluing the actual and potential value of the watch itself , very stupid , to me all I see when I look at these blinged up rolex watches Is how truly low class and ignorant the owners are , class is in the name and design of the piece itself .

I used to work for a jeweler and I found that the items that have small but numerous diamonds; it is usually that the diamonds are "machine cut" industrial diamonds. They are the leftovers from the high end diamonds. The value of each machine cut diamond is about $5 each. Most don't know that large diamonds (1 carat) is where the money is at.

@N Stratford By definition diamonds (jewlery grade) ARE inherently worthless. Diamonds only have intrinsic value, meaning its value is ONLY what people are willing to pay for it, but it is INHERENTLY worthless. It's literally the same for a fiat currency such as the USD. Money is paper and only has intrinsic value. Diamond is useful for cutting or drilling because of its hardness, but that's just the dust being used or a small shard for glass cutting. Diamonds (jewlery grade) have absolutely no practical use... Its different than say gold for example. Gold has very important practical uses because of its properties.

I will never forget learning about jewelry. Bought my girl a necklace with a diamond pennant that had a white gold chain and diamonds totaling around a carat in weight. We break up so I eventually head to a pawn store. Guy weighs it and says you got like 30 bucks here. Im like how and he goes "the 30 dollars is for the weight of the thin white gold chain those diamonds arent worth anything even the larger ones because they cannot be reset they are what us in the industry refer to as chip diamonds. If you have a bunch you can sell them to certain industries that make diamond coated drill bits and such but they are not worth your time." I should have known the scam the necklace was originally like 500.00 marked down to 350.00 due to a sale that I am certain never ends. Sold it to a coworker for 40.00. Live and learn.

@J Bo I’ll say it’d understandable for the jeweler to be called out on selling fake stuff. Because even people who can afford it - you’re paying for what’s been said. Taking it to average terms you buying what claims to be Oreos from the Oreo company at the store but you get home taste them and it’s some generic brand. You should get your money back definitely. The store at fault or the company. However if you spent your last bit of money on Oreos over baby formula for your baby and claiming “I could’ve used this on baby formula! That extra money could’ve been used on my baby” that’s 100% on the buyer. You knew you didn’t need Oreos. You knew you could’ve bought baby formula. This wasn’t a decision between two needs. It was an unnecessary want.

Jewelry itself is not a bad purchase or investment. The issue comes with CUSTOM pieces. It doesn't matter how many diamonds and how much gold, platinum etc are in your chain. If you have something along the lines of T-Pain's Big Ass Chain, it doesn't matter if it cost you 100k or more. You're not gonna be able to resell it later for anywhere near that, unless you get lucky and find a super fan who also happens to be obscenely wealthy, and that's not common. There's nothing wrong with buying some nice, expensive jewelry whether you're a rapper or not. But don't buy a rolex or a pendant that's so full of stones that it doesn't even make sense. Just buy the actual Rolex, or just a nice Cuban Link. The difference is that they'll hold their value, or even go up in value, the shit that's custom or "bust down" will NOT.

A bunch of jewellers got caught once that machine came out. Ppl started putting their pieces in the machine only to realize damn near half the diamonds were lab. So they charged you for 60 carats if diamonds meanwhile there was only 30 & then they also tell you it’s vvs while it’s only vs, then they cut the gold down to a lower %. Tell you it’s 14k but really give you 12-13k. After all that they still have the nerve to hit you with the ultra premium rapper price😂 so you really got fucked in each and every way.

I really have a hard time thinking of rappers as victims for getting scammed by jewelers. If you are an adult you're responsible for your own purchases and if you're so blinded by wanting to flex that you rush into buying the first thing that shines you got nobody to blame but yourself. Plus when you think about how much hustlers are praised in the rap/hip hop community it's beyond hypocritical to cry when you get hustled yourself. How a rapper gonna rap about hustling their community by dealing drugs then whine when they get worked on some jewelry. Time to grow up, stop whining about your own bad choices and learn to spend your money and stop praising hustlers if you don't like being on the other end of it.

Their scamming them because they know how to make the rappers feel they can trust them. You start by selling them real pieces then once that bond is formed you know you can start selling them fakes because you know they wont question that your stuff is real.

as a female, I don't get why they gravitate towards jewelry. I f*ck with function more than form. If it makes you efficient then go ahead splurge. If not, I'd rather buy stocks or properties 🤣

This needs a part 2 because you didn’t talk about the fake prop square diamond testers, the gold plated silver custom jewelry from China. How moissanite pass almost every diamond tester and are the only stones that look even in color on a piece. How jewelers sell you 14k but really be 12k or 10k be 8k(not considered precious metal). And my favorite! The replica iced out watches made in chine real movements replica case and bands. I got the ig manufactures as proof.

Why would you rant about something they aren’t trying to do? These rappers aren’t buying jewelry with the intention of selling it lol, ur anger is about as valid as getting mad about said rappers buying brand new hyper cars that’ll lose 80% of their value in 5 years. Now, someone like blue face could take your advice as he actually does see chains as investments(he’s an idiot in general tho and has what’s widely regarded as the worst deal in the game with 3 different labels taking a cut)

Very interesting subject well presented video. First, I feel they're all Entertainers. Sure it's alot cooler to picture the jewels and luxuries as authentic status pieces. But this all comes down to costumes and embellishments anyways...just as with TV shows, film or stage play wardrobes. I dont judge them as frauds perse. It's all cool. Except for the parts of "jewelers" (thieves/criminals) cheating buyers out of Real Money. If the rappers had purchased with fake 💰 Everyone on this thread would find fault in the scamming rappers and validate the idea of the Jewelers being deceived/victimized. So again it's always this color shh that anchors most people's opinion or lack of..smh.

6:52 ; This is ridiculous tho. Targeting black rappers to spend 6 figures on jewellery when they could’ve instead been feeding their families. I understand selling counterfeit is bad, but this argument is rubbish. If someone coming up has 6 figures in liquid cash, they need to sort out their priorities such as feeding a family rather than being “scammed” for 100K

I remember getting my first job. I saved up the whole summer. Even walked to/from work every day. Picked up extra shifts, etc. Had a little over 2k saved and bought a gold chain that I really wanted. Literally a few days later, I’m damn near broke and so frustrated with myself. I saw some of my peers putting down payments on cars/ apartments, but my dumbass went and bought a chain. Almost a decade later, I still have it lol. Daily reminder to be financially responsible.

Even when it is real, it is so hypercustomized that it has no resale value. So is it really that expensive or covetable if no on else wants it? It is also such a draw for potential robbers. I guess part of the reason why these rappers have to have multiple people with guns (licensed or not) around them is the amount of jewelry they wear, besides the obvious violence culture.

I’m the last five to ten years I feel like people have gone away from wanting to spend money on an actually good product or get a good deal for the value the product holds. Now it seems like people just want to spend as much as possible just to show that they got it like that, even if the product is no where near worth the price.

When you buy something 200K from a booth on the diamond district I cant feel sorry for any of these goofs for getting scammed. From poor quality diamonds to Frankenstein watches its all game in the grey market when all these uneducated fools wanna do is flex. You dont go to a back alley to buy stocks or make investments with "Silky Jay". And Wall St execs do not go to grey market for luxury goods looking for best price. Hood needs to find a real flex- like property and true investments so they're not broke in 5 years. Bottom line- a fool and his money are easily parted.

I been looking at a bit of jewellery lately, when it comes to my other hobbies, wether it's hats, shoes, action figures, cards and clothes, I always buy legit. But when it comes to jewellery, for one I can't afford thousands of dollars of jewels, and 2 even if I could I wouldn't throw my money away on stuff that is just artificially inflated in price, and most likely uses some sort of slave labour to get the goods too
