An Artistic Expression
Kendrick Lamar and Dave Free approached Tiffany & Co. with a specific creative vision for the crown and worked directly with the House’s designers and craftspeople to realize it. The design draws inspiration from Jean Schlumberger’s iconic Thorns brooch. The archival brooch—which features a 47-carat sapphire—is on display at the House’s “Vision & Virtuosity” exhibition in London this summer.

The custom crown is engraved with “Mr. Morale”—a reference to Lamar’s latest and fifth studio album, Mr. Morale and the Big Steppers.
