Back in May of this year, musician Machine Gun Kelly (real name Colson Baker) walked the red carpet at the 2022 Billboard Music Awards sporting a $30,000 diamond manicure.
The killer claws were a collaboration from Marrow Fine Jewelry and Nails of LA, using 11.4 cts. t.w. of diamonds and more than 10 hours of creation time. At the time, we spoke with Marrow Fine founder and creative director Jillian Sassone about the viral red carpet moment and the manicure’s lasting impact—she told us the stones would be upcycled into a series of limited-edition rings.
That moment has come, with the brand yesterday unveiling an 18-piece capsule collection comprising 880 diamonds upcycled from MGK’s mega manicure. And, as promised, all profits from the collection’s sales will go to a charity of the rock star’s choosing—to Shaker Heights High School through the Shaker Schools Foundation. The charity, based in Ohio, benefits the high school that Baker attended.
Four unique designs available in 14k white, yellow, or rose gold make up this collection (note the Colson bands are made in 14k yellow gold), using white or black diamonds from that unforgettable look.
“Machine Gun Kelly’s red carpet moment at the Billboard Awards was such a viral moment for Marrow Fine, and I am so excited to share the final collection with the world,” said Sassone in a statement. “The collaboration with Nails of LA and Machine Gun Kelly was an exciting opportunity and I am thrilled it’s supporting those in need here in the United States.”
The rings retail from $1,950 to $5,000, and are available at marrowfine.com now.
