Jason of Beverly Hills founder and designer Jason Arasheben — known for creating edgy and lavish statement jewelry for celebrities and athletes including Jennifer Lopez, Mariah Carey, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Katy Perry, Rihanna, Justin Bieber and LeBron James — returns as the exclusive championship jewelry designer for the 2013 World Series of Poker.
The 2013 WSOP Main Event bracelet includes more than 28 carats of brilliant white diamonds, including two black diamonds and two rubies to represent each card suit, set within more than 220 grams of 14-carat white gold. The masterpiece required 250 hours of labor to design and produce.
For the first time, the WSOP Main Event bracelet will also be customized to the winner, as the bracelet design includes the two “hole cards” dealt during the WSOP Main Event final hand. Immediately after the event, Arasheben will laser cut each card to correspond to the winning hand of the new World Champion.
In addition to the WSOP Main Event bracelet, Jason of Beverly Hills designed and created the 74 championship bracelets awarded throughout the tournament, including all Las Vegas designs, as well as jewelry for the WSOP Asia-Pacific in Melbourne, Australia and the WSOP Europe event in Paris, France.
The approximate appraisal value of all 2013 WSOP bracelets is nearly $1 million, including the Main Event bracelet, which is considered among the most expensive pieces of championship jewelry across all major sports.
