Now, You, might be asking: Who is GLD? -The GLD Shop self describes themselves as "Hip Hop Jewelry" and gained attention with people in the community such as Future, Snoop Dogg, and Wiz Khalifa sporting their merchandise. GLD currently has another partnership with the NBA and has gained a much wider audience from it. Most recently they were dubbed "the Nike of men's jewelry" by Forbes. Though it should be noted they do have women's jewelry for sale.
