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."
