Style Queen in Emerald Green

It could be argued that the ever-glamorous Beyoncé stole the spotlight at President Barack Obama’s second inauguration last week, when she appeared wearing a gorgeous, glitzy pair of emerald green earrings – worth no less that a staggering $1.8million! 

Accompanied by a stunning, embroidered floor-sweeping black Emilio Pucci gown, Beyoncé looked truly divine when she took to the stage to perform the US National Anthem in Washington DC. 

The Lorraine Schwartz earrings were designed exclusively for Beyoncé to wear at this significant occasion, and the designer has quoted the earrings as ‘important but understated.’ Ms Knowles may have been accused of miming, yet there’s no way she can be criticized for the way she looked, as that was simple sensational.

Get her glitterati look for yourself, as Sophie’s Closet are pleased to present our pick of the best emerald-green gems to get your outfits racing.
