Sponsored Love: Hip-Hop Jewelry At The American Museum Of Natural History

May 22, 2024

Ice Cold: An Exhibition of Hip-Hop Jewelry celebrates hip-hop’s cultural influence through stunning jewelry from some of its iconic stars.

Highlights include Slick Rick’s glittering crown, the Notorious B.I.G.’s legendary gold “Jesus piece,” the diamond-studded Roc-A-Fella medallion for the record label co-founded by Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj’s sparkling “Barbie” pendant, and pieces from Erykah Badu, A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, and FERG, among others.

Building on New York City’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop as a global phenomenon, Ice Cold highlights the evolution of jewelry in hip-hop over the past five decades, starting with oversized gold chains embraced by rap’s pioneers in the 1980s and moving through the 1990s, when M.C.’s -turned-business-moguls sported record label pendants sparkling with diamonds and platinum.

 My latest Style Guide says this: emcee. Use M.C. for master of ceremonies; use emcee if referring to the action of serving as master of ceremonies. If referring to a performer, defer to their use of punctuation, within reason.
