21 Times Beyoncé Dazzled In Jaw-Dropping Jewels

13/11/2020

Queen Bey’s collection of jewels is legendary. Over the years, Beyoncé has accumulated an impressive collection of opulent crowns, statement necklaces, custom hoops and even 18-carat sparklers, with a large amount of her treasure trove designed by celebrity jeweller Lorraine Schwartz.

It was Schwartz who was enlisted by Jay-Z to create Beyoncé’s show-stopping, 18-carat, emerald-cut, flawless diamond solitaire engagement ring complete with a split shank, with which he reportedly proposed in 2008 – the very same year she first sang the immortal words, “If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it”. (Message clearly received.)

While the designer wasn’t behind Beyoncé’s wedding ring – the Carters opted for matching “four” tattoos on their ring fingers instead – Schwartz was the designer who put her stamp on the 18-carat, emerald-cut sapphire ring Jay gifted the megastar to mark the birth of their first-born, Blue Ivy, in 2012.

On the red carpet, the Lemonade singer operates under a strict “more is more” policy. Not content with the casual $10 million (£7.7 million) worth of Schwartz jewels – 100 carats of diamond rings, 50 carats of emerald rings and 80 carats of emerald-and-diamond chandelier earrings – she wore to the 2015 Grammys, she adorned herself with a $12 million (£9 million) Schwartz necklace comprising 400 jewels for the 2017 Grammys.

Earlier this year, her incredible visual album Black Is King was commended for its inclusion of jaw-dropping jewellery from numerous independent designers. Among them: Laurel DeWitt, an LA-based designer who masterminded several dazzling looks for the visual album – a pearly headdress, glistening turban, a crystal choker and body jewellery all made it to the historic film.

As the singer covers the December 2020 issue, British Vogue looks back at her sparkliest accessories – from multimillion-dollar necklaces to icy diamond rings.
