Celebrate the Jubilee with Gary James McQueen, The Immersive Kind and Jevels' virtual crown, an exciting new development in the jewellery world

23 May 2022

The digital artist Gary James McQueen has teamed up with The Immersive Kind and Jevels to release a virtual Jubilee Crown to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. The piece is wearable via an augmented reality (AR) filter, which is accessible through a QR code.

McQueen, who is the nephew of the late Alexander McQueen, chose the digital format so that everyone can have the chance to enjoy the crown during this time of celebration and occasion.

“I wanted to convey a feeling of the quintessential English garden and took inspiration from the Victorian ‘Posy’ flower arrangement where a crown of flowers circulates a single crowning Rose,” says McQueen. “For me this is the perfect tribute to the nature of our Queen Elizabeth II who leads with nurturing kindness and love.”

The crown can be accessed through social media, see below, and can be worn in online meeting rooms as well as on social media. It will later be released via tokenised NFTs on the Ethereum blockchain and be available in two limited editions in Tier 1 and Tier 2 with additional perks, including the source file for wearability in the Metaverse and a virtual meet with the artist himself.
