Jeweller's limited-edition range created for Black History Month.
London-based jeweller Doreth Jones will this week launch a limited-edition collection celebrating the life and work of black political leader Marcus Garvey.
The range has been created to mark Black History Month, which takes place in the UK each October, and the 100th anniversary of the Universal Negro Improvement Association (UNIA), which Garvey founded in 1914.
The collection launches on October 30 and features coin pendants, bracelets and rings bearing Garvey’s face, each with their own serial number and certificate. The range also includes a modern take on the classic sovereign ring, decorated with gemstones and cut-out details in the shape of stars and Africa.
The pieces are presented gold giftboxes bearing the Jamaican lion motif, representing the Rastafari movement, which ordained Garvey as a prophet. The collection has already won interest on an international scale and has been worn by US rapper A$AP Rocky.
The collection will be available for the duration of Black History Month and will be sold through Doreth Jones’ website and the JeDeCo shop at the Oxo Tower in London.
