Get Inspired by Beyonce’s Bold Statement Jewelry

bey bracelets

I love statement jewelry and my muse is our Bellyitch Bumpwatch alum Beyonce Knowles Carter.

Each outfit she wears is accented perfectly with just the right ring, bracelet, earcuff, bracelet, necklace or body jewelry to complete her look. I was most impressed with the exquisite unique pieces Blue Ivy‘s mom wore in the videos to her 2013 self-titled album.

My fave was the Black Lynn Ban PVD Armor Ring that she wore as knuckle rings in the “Superpower” music video! They retail at $420 each so you’d be set back  over $3,000 to replicate the precise look on your hands. She also wore 16 of the designer’s  Pave Coil midi rings in the “Haunted” video. They are embedded with white diamonds and black diamonds which retail at about $3500 each   I think that vid helped bolster the midi ring craze that following Spring.

You can get a similar style for under $20 from Free People or Ily Couture. And you can find the bold statement rings she wore in the “Telephone” jewelry at mid price range from other jewelers.

Another coveted set of jewelry are the Edie Borgo wrist cuffs and ear cuffs Bey rocked in the “Jealous” video.

That was one of my fave tunes from that visual album. Can you tell I recently discovered that the videos were released to the public last November? This past weekend, I relived my enjoyment watching  them all again on a larger screen. I  first purchased the album back when it first came out and had to view the videos on my iPhone.

The other great thing I discovered was that the Edie Borgo pieces from that video all are in a mid-range price point under $150 so they’re totally affordable!

And when Bey‘s not killing the game in her edgier looks, Mrs. Carter steals the spotlight in her bright and vibrant pieces, like these colorful Aztec art necklaces paired with that fab Mayan-inspired ring in that photo on the right.

I was totally crushing on those eye-catching accessories and adornments.

Revisiting that album last weekend also reminded me of how much I really dug the complete layered jewels look in the “XO” video too. I curated and assembed some inspiration pieces from our partners at ShopStyle for you to consider getting or using as a guide for the next time you’re out jewelry shopping.

If you want to nab some of  these glam pieces of jewelry, you can be creative and check out arts and music festivals this Summer.  Those events that have vendors who are at-home jewelry makers. They typically sell interesting and one-of-a-kind selections, and usually you can find big bold selections as well.

Happy shopping fellow jewelry lovers!

Fashion Confession: I’m a fan girl of Arm Candy

The right accessories can really help accent and in some cases, make a look or outfit. Even if you are pregnant and sticking to black to hide your growing waistline, a wonderful conglomeration of jewelry at the wrist is a fab distraction.
Right now I’m coveting arm candy. It’s the sugar and calorie free reference to series of bracelets, bangles or watches worn together for maximum style and effect. Here are my faves I’ve seen in recent searches for inspiration and ideas.
