The Star Wars jewelry collection we’ve all been waiting for will finally debut at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con!
StarWars.com released a preview of the 11-piece collection from RockLove Jewelry and words cannot express our joy over these stunning and original designs.
Up until now, Star Wars jewelry has been largely unexciting with unimaginative logo rings and flimsy necklaces. This new collection from RockLove is out of this world and promises to be the best one yet.
Not only that, but a second part of the collection is also on the horizon.
“I’ve been hard at work on the second part of this collection and have lots of tricks up my Jedi-robed sleeves, keeping in mind all the diversity of fandoms in the [Star Wars universe],” wrote CEO and Designer Allison Cimino on Twitter in response to a conversation about merchandise and licensing. Will this continuation of the collection include pieces inspired by Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker or characters from the animated shows? We’ll have to wait and see.
For now, take a closer look at this 11-piece collection:
Ahsoka Tano Ring
The Ahsoka Tano Ring is exactly the kind of Star Wars jewelry I’ve always wanted. It takes a fan-favorite character’s iconic detail and transforms it into something chic and wearable. Best part yet is how the words “AHSOKA LIVES” are engraved on the inside of the band, and the idea came from Ashley Eckstein herself.
“The Ahsoka Tano Ring is exceptional in that I got to design it with Ashley Eckstein, the voice of Ahsoka Tano in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels,” Cimino said in her interview with StarWars.com.
“She asked me if I could help her on an Ahsoka ring, so I got to weigh in and collaborate,” Eckstein added in a recent Instagram live video, where she gave fans a closer look at the ring as well as the packaging.
This is a limited edition ring and only 1,000 pieces were made. Additionally, the ring will include an authenticity card autographed by Ashley Eckstein.
Fans attending SDCC will be able to purchase the Ahsoka Tano Ring ($85) at the RockLove Jewelry booth (2913-N) and the Her Universe booth (2913-O) as well as the RockLove and Her Universe website.
AT-AT Walker Necklace
The AT-AT walkers and their variants throughout the years are some of the most formidable weapons in the Imperial arsenal, but they’re not completely invincible. In Star Wars Rebels, we saw Kanan Jarrus slice through an AT-AT’s legs with his lightsaber and Ezra Bridger shoot one down with the help of the Force. Now, you can wear a miniature version with articulating legs in the form of a necklace.
“I couldn’t resist animating the AT-AT — it’s such a unique and quintessentially Star Wars shape,” Cimino said. “Articulating each leg gave the AT-AT the ability to realistically walk and interact… and is totally me living my dream of having one as a pet.”

Gonk Droid Necklace
The gonk droid is a fan-favorite design that keeps on winning the hearts of many, including those who attended The Mandalorian panel at Celebration Chicago. In one of the exclusive looks, a gonk droid leads the Mandalorian character to a meeting room. The audience loved that detail and there’s no doubt fans will also love this Gonk Droid Necklace with articulated legs that swing back and forth.

Jawa Earrings and Necklace
While I know better not to underestimate them, I always liked the squirrely nature of the Jawas. They like to scavenge and hoard things. They can also be intimidating when they want something, but in jewelry form, RockLove made them look super cute in a chibi-inspired style.
“I find these characters adorably menacing with their orange eyes and blasters,” wrote Cimino on Instagram. “But how to make them wearable as jewelry? While most of the collection is sculpted as realistic as possible, the Jawas I designed to be rounder and cuter than their screen counterparts.”
Thermal Detonator Necklace
Most companies often fall back on the “I love you”/”I know” scene between Leia and Han from The Empire Strikes Back, but Leia is more than that. Threatening Jabba the Hutt with a thermal detonator while disguised as Boushh is a vastly underrated Leia moment. Thankfully, RockLove is known for thinking outside the box and this Thermal Detonator Necklace celebrates Leia’s courage and determination.

The Planetary Medallions ($135) are some of my favorite in the collection because the matte enamel backgrounds combined with the sculpted sterling silver designs give the medallions an elegant and modern look.
“I wanted the Planetary Medallions to be matte to feel rugged as if these coins were actual souvenirs collected by visiting their demanding ecosystems,” Cimino told StarWars.com. “Developing these coins was my homage as a Star Wars fan — they encompass the most memorable face from that world paired with the most awe-inspiring scene.”
You can find each individual medallion below:
For fans attending SDCC, find RockLove Jewelry at Booth 2913-N in the Lucasfilm Pavilion. Limited quantities will be available for purchase on Wednesday, July 17, during Preview Night.
The collection will also go online on Thursday, July 18, at 9 am PST.
Once you get your hands on a limited edition Star Wars piece, share a photo on social media with the hashtag #StarWarsXRockLove.
While you’re at Comic-Con, don’t miss out on these geek fashion panels: Careers in Geek Fashion and Behind the Design: Star Wars Fashion Collaborations. Both panels will include Cimino as a panelist, so make sure to show RockLove your love and support by attending.
RockLove Jewelry will also make an appearance at D23 Expo with her Disney collections as well as New York Comic-Con, where both her Star Wars and Disney collections will be on display for fans.
