You can’t be 13-time Grammy winner and wildly influential producer, singer and rapper Pharrell Williams, but you can wear his jewelry—for a price.

Pharrell Willams, best known for his incredible lyricism and melodic creations, is giving us a chance to purchase some of his custom pieces in an upcoming auction titled “Son of Pharaoh.”

Many of the 52 prized pieces set to hit the auction block can be seen on Williams’ person in music videos and photos taken of the artist throughout the late ‘90s and early 2000s; and 19 of them were made by hip-hop favorite “Jacob the jeweler” of Jacob & Co.

Even better, portions of the proceeds will help support the music man’s Black Ambition Foundation, which supports ethnic minority entrepreneurs in the United States.

Get your hands on the original “nerd” pendant, commemorating Williams’ time with his band N.E.R.D.; or his signature, yellow-diamond astronaut necklace.

“Pharrell was always into Astronauts,” Jacob Arabo of Jacob & Co. is quoted in a press release. “This one used to go with him on stage. It got him so much publicity. People were screaming when they saw this jewelry on him. He was the first one to wear this.”

Other items up for grabs include the Asscher-cut Tennis Platinum necklace; a diamond-encrusted and color-correct Super Mario who hangs from a chain mid jump; shimmering skateboard pendant necklaces and more.

Jacob & Co and Williams have maintained a long and storied partnership throughout the producer’s career.

“Collecting is about showing a set of values and ethical intelligence through spending,” Williams says. “This was all me proving things. Even down to the diamond dice, it was me willing to take a chance.”

Williams took a chance on Jacob & Co, and the result was a friendship and partnership that would last a lifetime.

“That was everything to me,” Williams continues. “You know the Rubik's Cube? These pieces meant I was playing games with everybody, and nobody could figure me out. The carabiners meant I'm climbing.”

If you want to get a piece of the magic created by this special friendship and other items from Williams’ past—including William’s blackberry 8700, Alpinestar motorcycle jacket and Bape STA’s—tune into the online auction, going live on Thursday, Oct. 20, at Joopiter.com.
