Leave it to pop culture megastar Rihanna to make a touching statement with her choice of jewellery.

At the Fenty x Puma Creeper Phatty Earth Tone launch party in London – which included guests like Aitch, Bianca Saunders, Bree Runway, Dilara Fındıkoğlu and Elarica Johnson – the Diamonds singer accessorised with two chunky nameplate rings.

The first is a custom “Mom” ring from celebrity-loved Beverly Hills jeweler XIV Karats, crafted from 14-karat yellow gold and accented by two dozen diamonds.

More notably, however, she also wore a chunky “Grim” ring owned by her partner, A$AP Rocky. Studded with white diamonds, the sizeable piece refers to the rapper’s highly anticipated upcoming 4th studio album of the same name.

While the designer of the “Grim” ring remains unclear, it’s certainly a touching tribute from Rihanna and speaks to the powerful sentimental and emotional value that jewellery can hold.

It’s also not the first time that Rihanna has opted for jewels with meaning. A staple addition to her off-duty maternity style was a sentimental charm bracelet from London jeweller Annoushka – a bespoke piece purchased by A$AP Rocky for Rihanna in London.

Speaking to Something About Rocks, founder and designer Annoushka Ducas reveals that A$AP Rocky “was very keen to know the meanings behind each charm and chose them based on these. All of the charms chosen represent something very imbued with love and happiness and seem significant for the new chapter they are heading into together.”
