NBA Player Marquis Daniels Blows Big Money On Iced Out Replica Of His Head

By Allen Starbury   /   Published 02/26/10

Marquis Daniels' diamond pieceHip-hop stars and jewelry go hand in hand. But, athletes -- with their deep pockets -- also blow a lot of cash on shiny custom pieces as well.

One of the most ridiculous pieces we've seen, as of late, comes from Boston Celtics guard Marquis Daniels, who dropped a pretty penny on a custom, diamond encrusted replica of his own head.

The NBA baller recently enlisted popular jeweler Jason of Beverly Hills, whose clientele boasts actresses such as Jessica Alba as well as rappers like Lil Jon, for a piece modeled after his own face.

The bling was made using "3D laser-imaging process that took place in the making of the face and head weighing in at over 1,300 grams of 14k gold," the jewelers said on their blog.

It also contains "flawless black, white and cognac diamonds" that "encase a set of life-like porcelain eyes, similar to those used in Madame Tussauds' wax museum figures."

While the cost of the custom piece was not disclosed, it looks to at least a six-figure amount.

Check out the video below to see the process of creating the insane piece:

    Listen to all the haterz... so the man spent some cheese on a custom piece. Don't most rich people buy Jewelry and other lavish items? What makes him a fool? The fact that you don't like it or the the fact that you can't afford it? Nobody would have said anything if he bought a 350K Bentley that depreciates in value the minute it gets driven off the lot and everybody in Hollywood has one of those.
