Kanye West Wears Necklace Bearing Daughter’s NameBy: Kimberly Ripley - June 26, 2014
Kanye West has been spotted recently wearing a rather delicate gold necklace bearing the name of his and Kim Kardashian’s daughter North West. ‘Nori’ is what the pendant on the necklace reads and Kim wears one that is identical to it, too.
Kanye flashed a peace sign to photographers in recent days as they snapped photos of him wearing the jewelry that pays homage to his 1-year-old daughter. He flashed a slight smile as well–a bit unusual for Kanye West–and revealed a grill that adorns his bottom teeth.
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West celebrated little Nori’s first birthday recently with a ‘Kidchella’ themed party. Modeled after the music festival Coachella, there were tents, a ferris wheel, and food stands at the bash that was held in Kourtney Kardashian’s back yard. That’s quite an extravagance for a 1-year-old who won’t remember a thing about her first birthday. True to Kardashian fashion, however, the birthday was done up in style, and was likely far more for the adults in attendance than for Nori anyway.
Do you think Kanye’s display of the delicate ‘Nori’ necklace shows a softer side to the rapper that many people have never witnessed? He has openly lauded his life as a husband and father in the months since both North West’s birth and his marriage to Kim Kardashian–a far cry from the hard rap persona he evokes when on the concert stage or in a recording studio.
Perhaps Kanye West and Kim Kardashian will set a trend for new parents to bear their baby’s name on pieces of jewelry following their births. Do you predict a new hot item for sale at the Keeping Up With the Kardashians DASH boutiques in L.A. and Miami? How much do you suppose these little gems will cost? Unless some other company starts producing them, you can bet you’ll pay a pretty penny to procure a Kardashian original.
