Here’s the full truth: grillz have teeter-tottered in popularity over the past several thousand years (sorry, Google won’t let me check that far back). In fact, researchers date the first grillz sighting to as far back as 2,500 BC when a team of early 20th century archaeologists discovered a man in Giza buried with two gold teeth.
Etruscan women wore grillz as a status symbol up until 100 AD. Mayans wore grillz too. Just not gold or diamond ones. Instead, they preferred to wear jade, inserting the stones directly into their teeth. Ouch. This was a popular trend for them up until the 1500’s. Evidence also suggests that Filipinos sported gold grillz as early as 1500 AD.
During the late 90’s gold teeth were a huge trend in Tajikistan until rising Gold costs and Western influence led to severe decline in popularity. Gold grillz are still popular in Uzbekistan though, were there’s an abundance of “smiling faces with gold capped teeth.”
When examining the origin of gold teeth and their 4,500 year history, one thing remains constant: what they symbolize. Power, status and wealth. They still do. They’re also no longer reserved strictly for the hip-hop crowd, with artists and athletes across all genres and sports rocking them.
