Hoorsenbuhs is an upscale unisex jewelry brand specializing in rings, necklaces, and bracelets. It’s named after a 16th-century ship sailed by Founder/Creative Director Robert Keith’s ancestors. Keith, a former fashion photographer, launched the business in 2005 when he taught himself to make a single chain-link ring. He brought on Kether Parker, a childhood friend, as Brand Ambassador and they steadily gained a following that now includes music’s top tastemakers: Pharrell Williams, Jennifer Lopez, Kanye West, Rihanna, Jay Z and Mark Ronson all own pieces. The pair also gained buzz with its collaborations, which include a gold knuckle ring with Jay Z and a partnership with visual artist Damien Hirst, with whom Parker and Keith are designing a wristwatch.
