Remember the time when the triumphant French football team received those big diamond studded rings by Paul Pogba? Well, the jeweller who made those rings is actually pretty famous and is the go-to jeweller for many famous sports stars and celebrities.
Meet Jason Arasheben, owner of ‘Jason of Beverly Hills’, who is known for his iconic pieces of jewellery across the world of sports and entertainment.
Recently, the LA-based firm was in charge of designing the famous World Cup rings for the French team after their historic win at the world-famous tournament.
The company has been working with some of the worlds most famous footballers since they opened doors in 2002.
Football icons like Ashley Cole, Didier Drogba, Daniel Sturridge, John Terry, and Antoine Griezmann are just some of the big stars Jason has worked with.
Didier Drogba was very generous when he created the trend that Pogba followed. The Chelsea legend had ordered similar Superbowl-style rings for his team back in 2012. The Ivorian reportedly spent around £800,000 on the pieces that were a celebratory gesture to the Blues’ Champions League win.
In an exclusive to The SunSport Arasheben said, “I’ve made jewellery for a lot of British-based footballers, even though I’m based in the States. A lot of players come to Los Angeles, especially in the summer time.”
In the past year, Jason and Pogba have become close along with French star Griezmann who enjoys holidaying in LA. Pogba and fellow teammate Griezmann love holidaying in LA. The idea for the rings came up when Paul Pogba learned about the rings made by Jason for the Golden State Warriors from the NBA.
The rings took around two months to be ready; they are made up of white gold and includes a mix of rubies, diamonds, and sapphires.
“With the piece, we’re trying to tell the story of that particular World Cup, showing the year, a picture of the trophy, we wanted to symbolise the entire tournament and the accomplishment they achieved,” Arasheben said.
Joining the A-lister was Antoine Griezmann who had commissioned Jason of Beverly Hills with another special order.
“Antoine reached out to me and said he wanted us to design the ‘Take the L’ Fortnite dance,” Arasheben revealed.
“He said it was something he did with his goal celebration and he wanted to commemorate that with a piece.”
“It was made of black gold, black diamonds had ruby eyes and there are some emeralds in there too.”
“Those are the fun pieces that not everyone can pull off. But when you’re a top footballer, and you want to have something fun, that’s something they can afford.”
The whole bling-game is out there for us to see with almost every famous sportsperson donning the rarest of designs.
