Chart-topping singer, one half of music’s biggest power couple, fashion mogul and now mother of three - Beyoncé is an icon. For so many of us she’s a source of motivation, a guiding light in terms of fashion and our go-to for countless girls’ nights out (Freakum Dress, anyone?).
Her jewelry is nothing short of flawless either. She's rarely seen on the red carpet without a head-turning pair of earrings, or a diamond necklace worth more than a 15-bed mansion. Bey accessorises her off-duty outfits equally as well as her on-stage ones. Think oversized gold hoops, layers of chokers and cute custom-made rings.
There’s a lot to be learned from Beyoncé’s ability to elevate any outfit using jewelry. So, let us take you on a journey through some of our favourite Beyoncé jewelry moments...
Grammys’ Golden Goddess
Bey was the ultimate golden goddess at this year’s Grammy Awards. Embracing her baby bump, she wore an incredible custom Peter Dundas gown. But it wasn’t the dress we were wowed by. Who could miss her giant gold headdress complete with golden halo?! The look was topped off with a structured gold choker, huge hoop earrings and stacks of bangles, and will arguably go down as one of her most eye-catching.
£4-million Engagement Ring
Beyoncé and Jay Z tied the knot back in April 2008. In the year previous, Jay Z proposed with a huge 18-carat emerald-cut diamond engagement ring from Lorraine Schwartz, that is estimated to be worth around £4 million.
Double denim ft. Chanel brooches
Beyoncé just answered the age-old question of whether double denim is cool or not. But the real game-changers here are the incredible Chanel brooches. Clustered on her breast pocket and down her sleeve, the addition of glittering double Cs shows just how powerful brooches can be when it comes to accessorising.
Beyoncé’s 2009 Golden Globes outfit was all about the necklace. An Elie Saab beaded strapless gown provided the perfect canvas for a seriously bling, 200-carat bib of diamonds that donned her décolletage.
Her personalised “blue” ring
Bey often removes her engagement ring for various other rings (who has time to wear a hefty £4-million ring anyway?), but none are as special as this one. The custom gold ring is a tribute to her daughter, spelling out “blue” in diamonds.

The 2010 Grammy Awards were a good year for Beyoncé, with her picking up no less than 6 awards. She spiced up a nude Stéphane Rolland gown with a killer pair of hoops.
Layering sparkling black hoops may have looked killer, but proved to be a little impractical for Beyoncé at the Tidal X 1015 concert. The singer, known for her fierce dance moves, accidentally ripped out one of her earrings and was left, mid performance, with a bleeding earlobe. Ever the professional, Beyoncé continued to sing without even missing a beat.
What accessories go with a mint green, wing-like feather collar? A pair of emerald, pink diamond and paraiba earrings worth $1.8 million, apparently. The striking look was finished with a 12-carat pink diamond ring ($9 million) and a 20-carat diamond ring ($1.5 million).
In a recent post to her 106 million Instagram followers, Bey showed off a 90s-inspired cap and hoop combo. She mismatched one oversized hoop earring with a structured drop earring, and finished the look with an abundance of gold chain chokers.

The bee has long been associated with the 36-year-old singer. Often referred to as Queen B, Beyoncé’s fans refer to themselves as the BeyHive. So, it’s no surprise that she’s incorporating her symbol into her wardrobe. We adore this diamond-encrusted honeycomb ring.
Beyoncé has had pretty much every hairstyle going over the years, but we have to admit the 2015 blonde bob was one of our favourites. The angelic white dress she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscars Party was livened up by a glistening diamond choker.
