Taylor Swift recently showcased a sentimental piece of jewelry during her visit to the recording studio. The 34-year-old “Lavender Haze” singer complemented her casual athleisure attire with a necklace featuring a quote from the late sports icon Kobe Bryant. This special piece is part of Vanessa Bryant’s 2022 capsule jewelry collection, Mambacita x ZC Jewelry, created in collaboration with Zoë Chicco Fine Jewelry.
Swift’s necklace boasts a gold circular pendant engraved with the motivational words “Bet on yourself,” with Kobe’s full name underneath the quote. The pendant is adorned with diamonds, adding emphasis to the inspirational message.
Although the necklace is no longer available online, as Vanessa’s collection had a one-month public release, Swift also sported a Men’s Adidas Graphics Animal Polar Fleece Jacket during her Thursday outing, retailing for $120 online.
Vanessa Bryant had previously shared that the limited capsule collection’s proceeds would entirely benefit the Mamba and Mambacita Foundation, dedicated to making a positive impact for underserved athletes and children in sports.
Swift’s choice of jewelry reflects one of several ways she has honored her late friend Kobe and his daughter Gianna Maria-Onore since their tragic deaths in 2020. The pop star had previously taken a moment during her Eras tour stop at SoFi Stadium in L.A. to hug Vanessa and Kobe’s daughter Bianka, 7, who attended the show with her mom and sister Natalia Bryant.
The touching moment was shared on Instagram by Vanessa with a caption expressing love for Taylor Swift. The couple’s youngest daughter, Capri Kobe, 4, did not attend the concert.
