At the first annual VH1 Rock Honors, members of KISS, QUEEN, Def Leppard and Judas Priest will be presented with a custom ring. Not your average show, not your average award… VH1 and Commemorative Brands, Inc. have produced 40 “class rings” to be awarded to the “VH1 Rock Honors” honorees. As we sing the praises of the artists whose music has made a lasting mark on the history of hard rock, VH1 will honor them with a 10 Karat white gold ring, with onyx, diamond and garnet stones. The “Rock Honors” ring celebrates the legends that have influenced the sound of hard rock for all time and symbolizes the long lived connection to heavy metal that will thrive as long as it is honored. Beginning this year, the ring will embark us onto a tradition that will continue to flourish for each generation to come.
