bling-bling

noun; sound symbolism
shiny metal trinkets, necklaces; objects of luxury This magazine article had a humorous picture of a game character with gold chains and rings. I have also heard this word phrase used on MTV and other places to describe excessive gold and metal objects worn by celebrities, rappers, and pimps. I think it came about from the sound all the metal makes clanging around a person's neck, arms, hands, etc.
 
He's the king of bling-bling
