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.

Wilkerson: “They Feel Like Family”

Newton’s Jewelers in Fort Smith, Ark., was a true institution. But after being at the helm for most of his life, owner (and descendent of the original founder) Kelly Newton decided it was time to retire. He chose Wilkerson to handle the sale. “I’ve known the owners of Wilkerson for a long, long time. I felt at home with them,” he says. The final retirement sale was just a “blast” and the Wilkerson sales team made it so very simple and straightforward, says Newton. Would he recommend Wilkerson to others? Absolutely. “They’ve done incredible work,” says Newton. “They feel like family.”
