Tupac’s Crown Ring Sells for Over $1M

Tupac Shakur’s famous crown ring, made of gold, rubies and diamonds, made it to auction this week and was sold for $1,016,000 — making it the most valuable hip-hop artifact to ever be sold at an auction.

Shakur designed the crown ring himself, with the diamond-studded band sitting strongly as the base for the large gold crown adorned with more diamonds and rubies, including the 2 pavé cut diamonds and the cabochon ruby as the main decoration of the crown. The ring also included the inscription “Pac & Dada 1996” on the inside of the band, which Pac included as a nod to his engagement with Kidada Jones.

Tupac’s godmother, Yaasmyn Fula, was the one who delivered the ring to auction, as well as the one who helped Pac design it. She told reporters that they created the ring to celebrate Tupac’s endurance and survival of a difficult time of his life.

The auction house had originally estimated the famous ring to go for around $300,000. With the final bid of $1,016,000, it is safe to say that they exceeded their expectations for this auction item.
