The saga began last week, with Ben Baller showing off a newly cut $500,000 check from The Hundreds as down payment for the commissioning of the “world’s most expensive, most ignorant chain.” Yesterday, the notorious jeweler to the stars revealed the finished product — a massive Hundreds logo pendant featuring 700 carats of diamonds (16 solitaire 1-carat VS1 E color diamonds and 2090 brilliant round solitaire diamonds ranging from .25 to .34 carats) along with a massive gold chain, together weighing in at a jaw-dropping 26 kilograms of 18K gold. Retail for this bit of finery? $3,115,000 USD. Naturally, the timing of the project indicated an elaborate April Fool’s prank, but today finds Ben taking to Twitter to announce “So its April 2nd now … The Hundreds Chain is real. No more speculation.”
Check out the chain’s debut on the season 2 premier of Ben Baller’s show on the Loud Channel, featuring acting that falls just shy of Oscar-worthy. We’re still not sold, but it’s a good story. Press play on the video below.
