The American Museum of Natural History in New York City will highlight some of rap’s most notable jewelry pieces in the upcoming “Ice Cold: An Exhibition of Hip-Hop Jewelry” exhibit.

Opening on May 9, “Ice Cold” will feature the likes of Slick Rick‘s gem-encrusted crown, Biggie Smalls‘ gold Jesus piece, JAY-Z‘s diamond-studded Roc-A-Fella medallion, Nicki Minaj‘s “Barbie” pendant and more pieces from the collections of Erykah Badu, A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, A$AP Ferg and Tyler, the Creator, to name a few.

“Building on New York City’s celebration of the 50th anniversary of hip-hop as a global phenomenon, Ice Cold will highlight the evolution of jewelry in hip-hop over the past five decades, starting with oversized gold chains embraced by rap’s pioneers in the 1980s and moving through the 1990s, when emcees turned business moguls sported record label pendants sparkling with diamonds and platinum,” the exhibit announcement read.

“Ice Cold: An Exhibition of Hip-Hop Jewelry” opens May 9 and will be on view in the Melissa and Keith Meister Gallery.
