Queen Bey’s collection of crown jewels is legendary. As the singer turns 37 on September 4, looks back at her sparkliest accessories – from multimillion-dollar necklaces to icy diamond rings.
While Beyoncé’s uncompromising creative vision and formidable stage style evolve with almost every performance, the singer’s penchant for bling means jewelry remains a pervading part of her aesthetic whether she’s on- or off-stage. Over the years, Queen Bey 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 jeweler Lorraine Schwartz.
It was, in fact, Schwartz who create Beyoncé’s showstopping 18-carat, emerald-cut, flawless diamond solitaire ring complete with a split shank, which he reportedly proposed within 2008 – the very same year she first sang the immortal words “If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it”
The 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 behind the 18-carat, emerald-cut sapphire ring Jay gifted her to mark the birth of their first-born, in 2012.
On the red carpet, the Lemonade singer operates under a strict “more is more” policy. Not content with the casual $10 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 Schwartz necklace comprising 400 jewels for the 2017 Grammys.
That isn’t to say that it is all expensive. Mrs. Carter favors serious statement pieces and costume jewelry too, including designs by Erickson Beamon, DylanLex, Fallon, and House of Malakai.
The latter created the Queen Nefertiti-inspired crown the singer wore for her historic 2018 Coachella performance and the gilded crown she created for her 2017 Grammy performance. Like the queens before her, Beyoncé’s jewelry signifies beauty, power, and success.
