Press Release (ePRNews.com) - New York, NY - Jul 20, 2016 - RockLove Jewelry has partnered with CBS to created a men’s and women’s special edition jewelry collection including sterling silver, genuine gemstones and premium enamel for the 50th Anniversary of Star Trek. All pieces are handcrafted in NYC by RockLove Jewelry.
After an apprenticeship in Florence, Italy, owner Allison Hourcade fused her love of pop culture fandoms and historical eras with her launch of RockLove Jewelry. Hourcade believes that jewelry surpasses age, gender and trend and loves designing pieces for fans to wear in support of their favorite fandom. This Star Trek 50th Anniversary is a special project for Hourcade. She explains:
“My parents are both academics so while we had music lessons and mountains of books, there was not a lot of TV allowed. However, when I was seven years old, my scientist father used to let me sneak downstairs to watch episodes of Twilight Zone, Young Indiana Jones, and Star Trek. Spock taught me about wisdom, Picard taught me about integrity, and Janeway taught me that a woman could do anything. Working with CBS and Star Trek is an homage to my father, and as the world celebrates 50 years of this iconic series, I celebrate a personal 25 years of life lessons imparted by their legacy.”
“My parents are both academics so while we had music lessons and mountains of books… there was not a lot of television allowed. However, when I was seven years old, my mum went to medical school and my scientist father used to let me sneak downstairs to watch episodes of Twilight Zone, Young Indiana Jones, and Star Trek. Spock taught me about wisdom, Picard taught me about integrity, and Janeway taught me that a woman could do anything (especially when she’s had her coffee!). Working with CBS and Star Trek is an homage to my father, and as the world celebrates 50 years of this iconic series, I celebrate a personal 25 years of life lessons imparted by their legacy.”
