September is Beyoncé’s birth month and we’re here to add some bootylicious jewelry inspo to the month of September too. Queen Bey – as if she needs an introduction – first blew up on the radio with her girl group known as Destiny’s Child. Since their split in 2005, Beyoncé went solo and the rest is history. She’s now an international icon with innumerable awards to her name. In addition to her music career, she has secured roles in some major motion pictures. Beyoncé is a true superstar and fashion icon which is why we’ve decided to look to her for some jewelry inspiration.
EMERALD AND DIAMOND EARRINGS
Beyoncé wore one of her favorite designers, Lorraine Schwartz, to the 2016 Video Music Awards (VMAs). She hit the red carpet wearing $1.8 million dollar earrings designed specifically for her. In fact, many of Schwartz’s pieces for the icon are custom made. The first (of many) pieces she wore during the night made one of the largest impacts. The million-dollar earrings were made of Colombian emeralds, intense pink diamonds and Paraibain tourmalines. It was a show stopping moment fit for nothing but a Queen!
Her engagement ring was projected throughout the world in a frenzy which can only be described as what happened when two supernovas collide. But, we don’t know what was more responsible for her engagement ring craze, the knowledge that it was Beyoncé’s or the sheer size and perfection of her engagement ring. The ring we’re referring to is an 18ct Flawless Emerald Cut Diamond set in a Platinum Split Shank. Naturally, a ring like that doesn’t come cheap and her engagement ring is rumored to cost no less than $5M. Perfection definitely doesn’t come cheap!
MAKING A STATEMENT
When you’re Beyoncé you’re used to making a big statement by doing the most mundane tasks. Maybe this is why she has an affinity for wearing statement pieces when it’s time for her to be in the spotlight. We usually spot her wearing statement earrings, but she’s also stepped out a few times with some absolutely, jaw-dropping statement necklaces. So, if you’re really feeling inspired, grab (or purchase) a phenomenal statement piece worthy of Beyoncé!
Beyoncé’s birthday kicked off the month of September and we wish you nothing but good health and an abundance of wealth. Beyoncé has worn some of the world’s finest jewelry and you too can get the look with the likes of Blue Nile and Adiamor for a fraction of the price.
