Lil Uzi Vert didn’t take home a Grammy this year … but he dominated the bling game by rolling into the show with more than a quarter mil around his neck.
The rapper — who was nominated for Best New Artist, but lost to Alessia Cara — went to the Grammys donning a custom 60-carat upside-down cross wrapped in a gold and diamond vine … hanging from an 80-carat diamond chain.
We’re told Lil Uzi reached out to celeb jeweler, Elliot Avianne of Avianne & Co Jewelers, 3 months ago to get it made … and dropped about $ 350k on the piece.
We’re told it was finished just 3 hours before the show and hand-delivered to him — just in time for him to walk the red carpet … and give this hilariously awkward interview.
