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.
