The focus on Beyoncé’s recent performance at the grand opening of Atlantis The Royal in Dubai has been on her whopping paycheck — reportedly $24 million for a 90-minute, 19-song set. But one highlight of the show was her extravagant wardrobe and her diamond accessories by jeweler-to-the-stars Lorraine Schwartz.
The 41-year-old singer wore $7.5 million worth of Lorraine Schwartz jewelry, according to Robb Report.
Beyoncé’s Jan. 21 performance marked her first full concert in more than four years, and was attended by 1,500 invited notables, journalists and global influencers.
All Those Jewels
Beyoncé, who is worth an estimated $500 million, opened the show wearing a yellow feathered couture dress by Filipino designer Rayan Al Sulaimani. Beyonce stood alongside her 11-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy, when the mother-daughter duo performed their Grammy-winning song, “Brown Skin Girl.” During that performance, Beyoncé wore a pair of Lorraine Schwartz earrings featuring two 100-carat emeralds surrounded by 60 carats of white diamonds. She was also donning a 30-carat yellow-diamond ring.
For her next outfit, Beyoncé wore a striking red jumpsuit that featured an appliqued bodice. The outfit by Lebanese designer Nicolas Jebran was completed with a matching train and gloves. The “royal attire” style outfit was accessorized with a sunburst-style crown, Lorraine Schwartz’s gold lace, 80-carat diamond earrings (though, some sources described the earrings as having a 50-carat diamond in the center).
Her final costume was a sheer pink minidress with leggings embroidered with crystals by Ukrainian designer Ivan Frolov. For this outfit, she sported a pair of diamond pyramid earrings totaling more than 60 carats, Vogue reported.
Beyoncé and the Lorraine Schwartz Connection
Beyoncé has a working relationship with the high-end jewelry designer.
Beyoncé has worn Lorraine Schwartz jewelry to the Grammys every year for more than a decade, including a yellow ring she wore at the 2004 Grammys, according to The Adventurine.
Beyoncé’s $5 million, 24-carat flawless emerald-cut engagement ring was also designed by Lorraine Schwartz.
The two women also have a scholarship they partnered on, the Beyoncé Knowles-Carter x Lorraine Schwartz GIA Scholarship. Annually, two Black recipients are awarded a full tuition and paid expenses for GIA’s (Gemological Institute of America) Graduate Gemologist program.
