There are many stages to a relationship. There’s “matched on Tinder.” Then there’s “We’re talking.” Next, you’re “hanging out.” And so forth, climbing up the levels of seriousness until you get to “He’s wearing my necklace.” Hailey Baldwin and Drake may have just started talking, but they’ve already reached necklace-swapping levels of seriousness, so draw your own conclusions.

Despite only having started being “very affectionate” at Drake’s Memorial Day party Monday, and despite sources saying they’re “dating super casually” and “taking it slow,” all signs seem to point to confirming the fact that Drake’s “really into her” — based on the fact that he just left the club wearing the model’s Jennifer Fisher “H” pendant.

Drake, 29, was spotted heading out of The Nice Guy (where else?) with Baldwin, 19, wearing the $550 small Gothic letter pendant that she’s been seen in twice before — once out in N.Y.C. in May and once at Coachella. (You may also recognize the design from the Rita Ora lemon bra incident; these necklaces are packed with meaning.)
And this isn’t the first time members of Kendall Jenner’s model squad have used a necklace to send a message. Kendall shares BFF necklaces with Gigi Hadid and Cara Delevingne, and Gigi not only has a favorite “Zayn” necklace, she also wore her Z pendant while on her “girls’ night out” Thursday. (And don’t forget the OG of coded message jewelry, Taylor Swift, whose paper airplane necklaces with Harry Styles even made it into her song lyrics.)
What do you think of the Drake/Hailey necklace message?
