With Valentine's Day just over a month away, rapper Kanye West gifted his wife a fancy necklace engraved with a series of iMessages. 

Kim Kardashian-West tweeted a screenshot and photo on Sunday revealing that Kanye had a vintage Cartier gold necklace engraved with text messages he previously sent to her.

Below a photo depicting the couple's cream-colored living space and manicured outdoor lawn, Kanye sent Kim an iMessage that began with "This is your life."

"Married with four kids," Kanye said. "Get people out of jail," he continued, referring to Kim's prison reform advocacy work. He went on to list her other achievements including a Vogue cover and "go to church every week with your family."

The rapper concluded the text with "Dreams come true."

He then commissioned a third party to sketch the text messages into a gold plaque necklace and gave it to his spouse of almost six years. In the past, Kanye gave Kim a thousand red roses, a giant wall of white flowers, and in 2019, he donated $1 million to his wife's favorite charities on her birthday. 

"He’s always the most thoughtful when it comes to gifts," Kim said in a tweet. She also posted a photo of her wearing the text-engraved necklace along with a screenshot of the original messages. 

If you're inspired by the tech-friendly gift idea, there are several more budget-friendly ways of recreating it using your own texts. Multiple sellers on Amazon offer personalized jewelry for as low as $8.99.

Etsy is also known for its sellers who offer unique, custom etchings for special events at various price points.
