Eric Da Jeweler speaks on his celebrity clients, his upbringing and the undying hustle.
Eric Da Jeweler is one of the music industry's favorite jewelers. It's a dream for some to get iced out by Eric and you know that once you get a chain from him, you've officially made it. He's always been a hustler, working since he was 14-years-old as he handed out flyers for a jewelry store. Soon, he would work his way up to the top of the food chain after spending time in several jewelry stores. He's now one of the most acclaimed jewelers in the world, showing that hard work truly pays off.
As he was running a jewelry shop when he was 19-years-old, DMX came to his store and he was invited to an exclusive event when he decided he wanted to ice out all of the famous rappers. 2 Chainz and Big Sean were just getting started out at that point and it was Eric's goal to connect with everybody in the rap world. From that point on, he started networking like crazy, quitting his job 6 months later and working all by himself.
As of late, he's been diving into the soccer world. He's making products for Paul Pogba, Neymar, and a few of the top players in the world. Of course, his most memorable piece was one that he made for 50 Cent. Fiddy was one of the first rappers to have worked closely with Eric Da Jeweler, acting as a stepping stone for him to reach a whole other group of artists.
Watch Eric talk about his life before becoming a jeweler to the stars in the latest episode of The Plug.
