The owner of Icebox Jewelry, a Buckhead store renowned for its client list that includes a Who’s Who of big-name Atlanta rappers, endured a harrowing armed robbery over the weekend, according to news reports.
The store’s owner and his wife were reportedly followed home by armed masked men who tied the couple up and then stole the keys to the store, which they then robbed.
Neither the man nor his wife were hurt.
Icebox Jewelry is well-known for its pricey custom pieces that many rappers have forked over thousands of dollars for, earning the store a reputation for being the preferred jeweler for Atlanta’s Hip Hop elite.
Icebox has been in business since 1976.
Police are investigating the incident.
