Pitchfork describes singer Frank Ocean as "never outwardly labeling his sexuality," and yet someone who "became one of the first Black artists to address his queerness so openly."†

And what better way to celebrate queerness than a bejeweled cock ring?

In a related report, Pitchfork writes that Ocean's luxury brand†Homer†has released a new collection of accessories, featuring pendants, earrings, a keychain, and the XXXL H-Bone Ring, a diamond-encrusted 18-karat gold cock ring. Prices range from $310 (the A-OK Keychain in silver) to $25,570 (the cock ring, featuring 60 "lab-grown" princess cut diamonds). The collection is available†online†or at the Homer brick-and-mortar store in New York City (by appointment).

The ring's description on the site reads: "The XXXL H-Bone Ring with Stones is hand made of 18 karat yellow gold with an array of channel set princess-cut diamonds and layers that express a pixelated bone or an H-motif, finished with a high polish."

But the cock ring isn't the most expensive item in Ocean's inventory.†"The store currently lists a white-gold necklace with nearly 14,000 diamonds for†more than $650,000," adds Pitchfork.

Ocean started the brand a year ago with a collection that included printed silk scarves and jewelry pieces that are handcrafted using 18-karat gold, recycled sterling silver, hand-painted enamel, and American lab-grown diamonds. The Homer products are designed in New York and handmade in Italy. A press release notes that the company's name "represents carving history into stone," and that the Homer designs are inspired by "childhood obsessions" and "heritage as a fantasy."

On Instagram Stories Ocean wrote of Homer: "Hand on my heart, this project has kept my mind moving and my imagination turning throughout it all... †This is 3 years in the making and there is so so much I'm excited to share with all you strangers. Love."
