Drake has an affinity for custom jewelry and it appears he’s copped another exclusive piece formerly owned and designed by Pharrell.
While still vacationing in Saint Barths, Drizzy was photographed alongside Norwegian influencer/model Sara Benedikte Nilsen and he looked to be wearing Skateboard P’s Jacob & Co. double skateboard pendant chain.
Pharrell’s glistening chain was part of the lucrative Joopiter auction where he sold off two decades worth of sneakers, jewelry and clothing for over $5 million. The chain was one of 20 Jacob & Co. pieces sold in the auction. The double skateboard netted $103,750 and it looks like Drake was the lucky buyer.
“Spiritually it’s a very rich experience, an enlightening experience to let…stories go,” Pharrell said at the time of the auction.

According to Complex, the “22 karat gold piece features white, pink, and yellow diamonds and weighs approximately 401 grams.”
The auction lot provided a history of the chain’s inspiration: “When everyone in the game was flipping it regular, P did it switch. Pharrell’s interpretation of a Jesus Piece was two 18K gold (fully functional) fingerboard-sized skateboards, complete with nearly 2,000 round, brilliant diamonds, dangling from a 26” 22K chain. One of the decks features a diamond depiction of Jesus, while the other features a diamond cross. If Skateboard P had a signature chain, this might have been it.”
Other rare items sold from Pharrell’s closet include a “Women’s Rights” embroidered motorcycle jacket, a gold-and-diamond encrusted G-Shock watch, and a few gorgeous pendants. The hitmaker said he had “11 different storage units” overflowing with garments.
Drake has extended his vacation since spending the holidays in Saint Barths with the likes of Diddy, Fabolous, Quavo, Meek Mill, Lil Baby and French Montana, the latter of whom the 6 God will be serving as executive producer on his upcoming documentary.
“It’s called For Khadija, that’s for my mother,” French explained. “You know she came out here and sacrificed for us. My father had left and she stayed, and she helped me become who I became, so I dedicated it to her. Drake is executive producing it.”
