"Ice Cold: A Hip-Hop Jewelry History" is a dazzling exploration of the integral role jewelry plays in hip-hop culture, spanning from the 1980s to the present day.

Authored by Vikki Tobak, the book captures the evolution of hip-hop jewelry as a statement of identity and self-expression. Lavishly illustrated with hundreds of images featuring major hip-hop artists, it showcases the transformative journey from iconic pieces like Run-DMC's gold Adidas pendants to the extravagant designs of Pharrell Williams, Jay-Z, Gucci Mane, and Cardi B.

Tobak delves into the work of pioneering jewelers such as Tito Caicedo, Eddie Plein, and Jacob the Jeweler, as well as newer artisans like Avianne & Co., Ben Baller, Greg Yuna, Johnny Dang, and Eliantte.

The book is a treasure trove of dazzling styles, featuring the work of leading photographers and offering a visual journey into the hip-hop jewelry universe.

With a foreword by Slick Rick and essays by A$AP Ferg, LL COOL J, Kevin "Coach K' Lee, and Pierre "P" Thomas, "Ice Cold" goes beyond ostentatious bling to tell a transformative story that is both loud and proud.
