GACKT has been quite busy lately, between his Camui Gakuin events, and preparing to play with the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra on December 26th, he’s also found time to collaborate on jewelry and snowboarding apparel.
The artist has teamed up with the jewelry designer, Loree Rodkin, to release a special “GACKT STONE”. After purchasing the stone, customers can choose from a variety of collaboration rings or pendants to have it set into.
GACKT has chosen three different diamond cuts, which have all been inscribed with GACKT’s logo, but done so using a special laser which does not lessen the quality of the gemstone. Please note that the prices listed below are the prices for the stone only. Furthermore, if you order today or tomorrow, you will receive 20% off the price.
GACKT STONE DIAMOND ROUND: S – 37,800 yen (About $375 USD)
Size: 0.1ct, about 3mm
Comes with a special proof of seal card.
GACKT STONE DIAMOND PRINCESS – 58,800 yen (About $580 USD)
Size: 0.25ct, about 3.5mm
Is inscribed with a serial number, and comes with a “scientific identification of precious stones” certificate.
GACKT STONE DIAMOND ROUND: M – 294,000 yen (About $2900 USD)
Size: 0.3ct, about 4.2mm
Is inscribed with a serial number, and comes with a “diamond grading report”. Can also be inscribed with up to 12 characters.
The GACKT STONES are available now, however, the Loree Rodkin pieces to set the stones into won’t be available until March of next year. To order your GACKT STONE, visit Dresser Japan.com.
