White-hot diva Beyoncé rocked the Grammy Awards Sunday night wearing seven statement cocktail rings, waterfall diamond earrings and her own flawless 18-carat (with a “c”) emerald-cut diamond engagement ring. The value of her scintillating jewelry ensemble totaled more than $15 million.
Lorraine Schwartz, who designed Beyoncé’s $5 million engagement ring in 2008, provided the songstress with an impressive assortment of bling for the award show’s red carpet. Beyoncé wore six rings on her right hand — three stacked on her right ring finger and one each on her index finger, middle finger and pinky. All the rings featured large diamonds, except for the pinky ring, which was highlighted by a large, rectangular ruby.
On the index finger of her left hand was an unusual inline three-stone diamond ring that overlapped two knuckles. The waterfall diamond earrings boasted a total weight of 50 carats.
Beyoncé famously sang, “If you liked it then you should’ve put a ring on it” in 2008’s “Single Ladies,” but on Sunday she opened the Grammy Awards show with a rousing performance of her new song, “Drunk in Love,” during which hubby Jay Z joined her on stage for the final chorus.
