People packed into the Staples Center on Monday to remember Kobe and Gianna Bryant. Although he was unable to make the service, superstar jeweler Ben Baller created a piece in memory of the late legend.
Baller took to Instagram where he showed off a pendant dedicated to Kobe. The double-sided piece featured Kobe's "Sheath" Nike logo on one side. On the other is Bryant's original jersey number, eight.
"I wish I could have been at Staples center today," Ben Baller wrote. "So in honor of legend, friend and the greatest Laker ever, I made myself this piece to remember you Kobe."
Ben Baller went on to explain the deeper meaning behind the piece. In a comment, the jeweler stated that he created a two-sided pendant to also pay homage to Gigi Bryant. As known, Gigi wore the No. 2 when competing for her father's Mamba Sports Academy AAU team.
"'2' sided chain in honor of Gigi Bryant," Baller commented.
Additionally, the baguettes are eternally set to show Bryant's lasting impact.
Kobe and Gianna's public memorial service was a star-studded affair. Beyoncé opened the ceremony with a performance. There were also speeches from Vanessa Bryant, Diana Taurasi, Bryant's idol Michael Jordan, and more.
