These earrings are inspired by the art of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The crown was his signature motif. In some paintings, the crowns top nameless, generic figures; but more often, they crowned his heros. These included renowned jazz muscians and celebrated athletes. Like the royal titles that famous African American musicians have sometimes adopted as nicknames - such as Duke Ellington or Count Basie - Basquiat used crowns to ennoble his icons.
