Tupac’s godmother, Yaasmyn Fula, helped commission the piece and said, “That ring is a powerful symbol. Whoever wore that ring had to accept that they have a responsibility to have an impact on the world.”

The ring was inscribed with “Pac & Dada 1996.” Dada (Kidada Jones—Quincy Jones’ daughter) was the name of Tupac’s fiancé at the time. They had recently gotten engaged before the entertainer was shot and killed in Las Vegas on Sept. 13, 1996.
