Legendary rock band Queen have partnered with Hatton Garden-based jewellery designer Johnny Hoxton to create two limited-edition, bespoke pieces. A 9-carat gold ring and a solid sterling silver chain and ‘Q’ pendant will be available to purchase exclusive to pop-up store Queen – The Greatest on Carnaby Street, which celebrates the band’s historic five decades of music.
Renowned jeweller Johnny Hoxton is known for his cool, fresh and disruptive designs. Drawing inspiration from underground pop culture iconography, his jewellery blends genuine craftsmanship and nods to street culture, so partnering with one of the world’s most visually iconic bands seemed a perfect fit.
This limited-edition Johnny Hoxton collaboration is the latest ‘Queen – The Greatest’ drop, as part of November’s Art & Design Month in store. Merging well recognised Queen iconography with Hoxton’s craftsmanship and aesthetic, each of the made to order pieces in the collection are true statement pieces. Made up of a solid sterling silver chain and ‘Q’ pendant of the Queen The Greatest emblem and a solid 9 carat gold ring engraved with the word ‘QUEEN’- the pieces retail at £145 and £245 respectively and are available now.
“I’m very privileged to have had the opportunity to be involved as a creative contributor to the celebration of one of the most influential bands of my generation,” says Johnny Hoxton. “I can only hope that my humble input does some justice to this beautiful legacy.”
Queen – The Greatest was launched to celebrate the band’s historic five decades of music. Created in partnership with Bravado, Universal Music Group’s merchandise and brand management company, the pop-up store is designed to take you on a visual journey through one of the world’s most iconic bands’ contributions to music, culture and fashion. The shop features limited-edition music releases, new product drops and exciting fashion collaborations, with each month of its three-month stint having a different theme: Music, Art & Design and Magic.
Queen The Greatest’ is at 57 Carnaby Street, London, W1 until January 2022.
