Ruff Ryders Lookbook

The Ruff Ryders x King Ice Collection serves as a collectors item for 90's era hip-hop fans. Founded by brothers Darrin “Dee” Dean and Joaquin “Waah” Dean, Ruff Ryders helped solidify hip-hop by introducing legendary acts to the industry such as the late great DMX, Swizz Beats, The Lox (Jadakiss, Styles P, Shiek), Eve, Cassidy, and more. Classic hits like “Ruff Ryders Anthem”, “Party Up”, and “What's My Name” cemented the signature Double R logo in hip-hop culture for a lifetime.

Continuing the legacy, King Ice has developed two all new Ruff Ryder pendants, one classic logo pendant and one Double R dog tag pendant, one championship style ring, and two pairs of earrings - all available in 14k white gold and 14k yellow gold. The collection also features two Young Ryders pendants for the new age Ryders as well as a two finger ring. The best part about culture is being able to share it.

Cannabis Collection Lookbook

King Ice has always designed accessories that are reflective of Los Angeles lifestyle and culture.

Our latest edition to the cannabis collection features four new necklaces with the signature five leaf pendant, a new set of hoop and stud earrings, and one new cannabis leaf ring that comes in two classic 14k yellow/white gold color ways.

Can’t Stop Drippin’ Lookbook

King Ice teamed up with Justice Barrios, an aspiring pro boxer and actor, to shoot the Summer Essentials: Can’t Stop Drippin campaign. Originally, the idea started as a joke in a discussion amongst our team - You would never see a person soaking wet walking down the streets of LA because, well, it never rains. As we advanced the conversation, it clicked, “what if he was soaking wet because he ‘can’t stop dripping… from the jewelry.” An obvious play on jewelry being referred to as “drip” and a person literally “dripping” from the water. The irony of it all, on the day of the shoot, it was actually raining in Southern California.

The jewelry we chose for this shoot consists of core chains, rings, bracelets and shades that are essential for Summer 2022. Some of our favorites are the multi-colored 3mm Spectrum Tennis Chains and bracelets, The 18mm Miami Cuban Choker with Baguette Stones, and the Hollywood Buff Sunglasses.

We were inspired and took a chance on creating something we’ve never seen before. Within the photos, you will see images of Justice shadow boxing, (referencing his boxing career) and locations we found interesting in Downtown Los Angeles. Most importantly, he is soaking wet because he “Can’t Stop Dripping.”

Arctic Watch Collection

Watches communicate so much about you without saying anything at all. They often symbolize the change and transitions from past to future, from one vision to another, and a person's growth from boy to man. The watch you wear represents the point of your life that you are in, your symbolic change in time. From the moon, into the future.

Our new collection of King Ice Arctic watches features three carefully crafted styles and two timeless colorways of 14k white gold and 14k yellow gold. The Arctic I is the perfect "Plain Jane" that is sleek, to the point, and subtle in design. The Arctic II is smooth, cunning, and casually lets them know “he’s here.” The Arctic III is electrifying and leaves no doubt in their minds who is the alpha in the room - for the man with style.

No Limit Records Lookbook

Percy “Master P” Miller, founded No Limit Records in 1991 out of his small record shop in Richmond, Ca. He sold 100,000 million records worldwide and earned an estimated $400 million by 2001, making him the highest-paid rapper in hip-hop history according to the Guinness Book of World Records. What people didn’t see before the money and fame is, he sold his first 200,000 CDs out of the trunk of his car. He later went on to sign acts like Mystical, Mia X, Silk The Shocker, C-Murder, Lil Romeo, Snoop Dogg - and managed to play a short career in the NBA. Before No Limit Records was founded, P’s grandfather told him, “there are ‘No Limits’ on life - wait on no man, start your own army,” hence the No Limit tank was born.

As a brand heavily inspired by hip-hop, it is important for us to bring forward stories that properly highlight history. The No Limit tank represented more than a shiny piece of metal, it’s a true American success story of kids who turned a little bit of nothing into a multi-million dollar empire that changed the lives of hundreds of people directly, and millions of people indirectly.

Our first capsule highlights the No Limit Records tanks in two colorways, 14k yellow gold and white gold. The tank is featured in 3 sizes and 4 variations. There is also one championship style ring which represents the 20 certified gold albums that charted on Billboard in one single year.
