Last week, during the Givenchy fashion show in Paris, superstar rapper Kanye West unveiled a prototype piece from his upcoming jewelry line. The 30-year-old has teamed up with artist Takashi Murakami, who also designed the artwork for Kanye's recent Graduation album, to work on the upcoming Manga-style jewelry collection. The hip-hop artist told WWD that "They'll be more accessible, they won't be all diamonds." At present no release date has been set.

After all, what can you really expect from hip-hop mogul Kanye West other than some attitude and cutting-edge style. I would love to purchase jewelry from Kanye West and I can bet I'm not the only person who wishes they could!
