If you’re looking to give your loved ones a set of gilded brass knuckles this holiday season, look no further than Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter’s collaboration with Barneys. Following in the footsteps of Lady Gaga, who designed a holiday workshop for the retailer in 2011, Hova has worked with labels such as Proenza Schouler, En Noir, Rick Owens, Acne Studios, Lanvin, Balenciaga (above, top right), Balmain (above, bottom left), Hoorsenbuhs (who had a hand in the aforementioned ring, above, bottom right), and more to create a series of limited-edition products—all of which will be displayed and for sale in a special gallery in Barneys’ Madison Avenue flagship, beginning November 20. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from the project, which the pair have dubbed A New York Holiday, will be donated to the Shawn Carter Foundation. We’ve got 99 problems (give or take), but, thanks to this team-up, holiday shopping ain’t one.
Valentine’s Day is next week, and some of you are no doubt angling for a diamond, not a box of chocolate. We’re here to counsel patience. Patience because you won’t be able to get your hands on Hoorsenbuhs’ just-launched Forevermark Bridal Collection until April 1, and Hoorsenbuhs’ Robert Keith has designed the most jaw-dropping engagement ring we’ve seen maybe ever. “Everybody was making the same ring over and over,” Keith says, rattling off a list of the most famous jewelry houses on earth. (His business partner, Kether Parker, is brand ambassador.) “And the basic feeling of the designs of those rings—it’s the same category, the same theme, and I can see all of them [for a lot less] in the Jewelry Mart downtown in L.A.” What sets apart this ring is the responsibly sourced 12.10-carat Asscher-cut rock that earns its Forevermark Exceptional appellation, and then some. But each Hoorsenbuhs for Forevermark engagement ring bears some of the 7-year-old brand’s design signatures. And they won’t set your significant other back $850,000 like this one will, either. Opening price points are less than $20,000 for a one-carat ring; a sampling of the line, which also includes diamond studs, is now available at Barneys.
