Expensive diamond jewelry (aka "bling" aka "ice") has been one of the more important accessories for a rap star’s image since the beginnings of hip-hop. Some of the pricey chains rappers have purchased are often related to rap lyrics, some are significant to their label affiliations while others can be outlandish like cartoon characters, animals or food condiments.

Lately, rappers have been hiring celebrity jewelers to make them one-of-a-kind blinged-out custom pieces. Big-name rappers like Drake, Lil Uzi Vert, Gucci Mane, Kanye West and Migos' Offset and Quavo have spent a mortgage payment on their expensive necklaces.

Even R&B singer Mack Wilds dropped a couple of bands to get his pendent customized so he can floss on the red carpet. The price tag for some of these sparkling diamond pieces will blow your mind - they cost more than your average home.

So without further ado, here are 10 rappers and singers who have copped some expensive diamond chains that are disrespectfully icy.
