Michael Hill has again partnered with INXS to release a limited edition unisex jewellery range that features signature band motifs including guitar pick pendants, rings, cuff, and a time capsule locket. This is following its award-winning “JEWELLERS” campaign that was announced as one of the world’s top 200 campaigns in 2022, where the fine jeweller featured INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart” ballad as the lead soundtrack.

The new line marks the 47th anniversary for the band, who are coined as one of the greatest bands of all time, with more than 70 million records sold worldwide and over 4 billion streams. The nostalgic jewellery range includes five unique pieces, encapsulating the effortlessly cool aura of INXS.

Maria Then, Michael Hill’s Head of Product Design said: “As an iconic band, INXS is a powerhouse. We are so excited to have this incredible opportunity to collaborate with them on the exclusive Michael Hill x INXS collection.

“When we were planning and conceptualising each piece, we wanted to ensure we honoured the band’s stylistic history. We have worked closely with INXS to build our jewellery range, which features an autographed guitar pick pendant that replicates the band’s actual guitar picks, heavy chains with hardware closures, and nods to some of their beautiful lyrics.

“We love the rockstar vibes of this collection and the romantic lyrics also make for a great Valentine’s Day gift.”

Jo Feeney, Michael Hill’s Chief Marketing Officer said: “Michael Hill has a long history of creativity, with music also at the heart of our brand. We wanted to honour that by using a soundtrack that matched the meaning and emotion of our origin story and INXS’ “Never Tear Us Apart” was the perfect match.

“Since releasing the campaign, we have been working with INXS to find another opportunity to collaborate on a project that provides synergy to both our brands. We are proud of this exclusive jewellery range and we hope our customers love these unique pieces as much as we loved creating them.”

The adoption of 100% recycled silver in the Michael Hill x INXS collection is part of the jeweller’s Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) goals and ambition to be one of the most sustainable jewellery brands in the world.

“INXS is synonymous with music, but also fashion and lifestyle. Whether we were onstage performing live, filming a video or simply hanging out in our recording studio, we enjoyed finding and wearing funky bohemian jewellery which had personal meaning as well as catching a twinkle of light, while adding a sprinkle of attitude. We are really digging these Michael Hill designs that reflect some of the things we still wear today – I still wear my INXS dog tags!” said INXS’s Jon Farriss.
