Classic Old School Bling


(Photo source)

Blender magazine compiled a photo history of classic old school bling back when jewelry meant a little more than a means to brag about what you have. Back in the day, jewelry was a rapper’s one-of-a-kind glittering showpiece created as a image of their self-identity. Today, not so much.

Take for instance the turntable piece above owned by the Mathematiks. “The turntable is built on a spindle and actually has a spring, so if you apply a little pressure, it bounces like a real turntable.”

Ever dreamt of having the blinged-out necklaces and medallions that you see flaunted everywhere? While you keep saving for that pipe dream, Maxim.com has compiled a list of the “The Best Bling Ever.” From Ghostface Killah to the “King of Bling” himself, Slick Rick, check out your favorite stars showing off their astonishing gold, diamonds, and more right here.

    Flashy jewelry meant the same thing back then as it does now. It’s the wearer shouting, “Look what I can afford yall!”
