When Drake dies, put his jewelry in the grave.

The “Hotline Bling” rapper can’t stop buying more and more diamond rings to add to his collection. The latest? A 22-carat heart-shaped ring set in platinum to celebrate his 33rd birthday.

Created by Gemma Fine Jewelry, Drizzy’s insane design features one enormous bezel-set diamond and also includes three hearts in the bridge underneath the massive rock. The love-centric theme could be a testament to just how much the Toronto native adores himself, but jeweler Ori Vechler also called him “the King of Hearts.”

According to Ajay Anand, CEO of Rare Carat, Drake’s new sparkler could have cost around $500,000. “Heart-shaped diamonds are one of the most unpopular diamond shapes, because they are so tricky to cut right,” Anand told Page Six Style. “This is a great example of one cut very well, which is quite rare.”

It seems like the unconventional shape is enjoying a bit of a comeback; Offset also recently gifted wife Cardi B with a similar design for her 27th birthday.

Drake debuted the bling at his star-studded mobster-themed birthday party last week, where he was also sporting his custom Toronto Raptors championship ring, which boasts more than 30 carats of diamonds.

Suffice it to say that Drizzy’s heading into his 33rd year with a lot more sparkle.
