Beyonce Lights Up Instagram in Emeralds by Lorraine Schwartz

The music icon is serene in emerald green worthy of a queen.




SINGER, RAPPER, SONGWRITER, actress and all-around human luminary Beyoncé Giselle Knowles-Carter recently blessed the internet with a series of Instagram photos featuring some truly jaw-dropping jewelry.

Our favorite of these jewels was an absolutely luscious Lorraine Schwartz emerald suite that Queen Bey paired with a plunging halter-neck gown that radiated Old Hollywood style glamour.

The necklace is multi-tiered, featuring two magnificent rows of diamond swags dripping with verdant emeralds. The earrings are of a similar style, with cascades of diamonds that begin and end with large emerald drops.

There is a whisper of controlled chaos about the design, with diamonds that overlap and emerald placement that doesn’t quite follow a rigid pattern. The slight wildness is emblematic of Lorraine Schwartz’s designs and keeps this extremely high-carat look feeling fresh.

Despite the fact that we got three Instagram slideshows with multiple photos each, there is no clear view of Queen Bey’s hands. The slinky skirt of her knockout dress has pockets and Beyoncé couldn’t resist tucking her fingers inside for several shots (the stars, they’re just like us!). We’re pretty sure she’s rocking an enormous emerald ring on her left hand, but we had to zoom in and squint to catch a glimpse.

Many modern celebs shy away from matching suites like these, but Beyoncé has reminded us why greats like Elizabeth Taylor also loved this style: the look is exquisite, regal without being stuffy, sensual without being tawdry, luxurious without feeling vulgar. In a word: perfect.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
