Celebrity Diamond Jewelry Styles at Essence Fest 2019
Earlier this month one of the most exciting events of the summer took place in New Orleans in Louisiana as thousands poured in to celebrate their glowing lives and style at Essence Fest. Beautiful stars from around the country arrived to show us how it’s really done! We highlighted some of the best looks from the ladies of Essence Fest 2019 and did a deep dive into our personal collection to help you rock their look without breaking your bank. We were blown away by styles from Missy Elliott, Big Freeda, Mary J Blige, and H.E.R. who all showcased unique pieces of jewelry to compliment their personal designer style. Don’t be afraid to stand out with some of these amazing statement pieces, you’re a star too!
Missy Elliott is a spearhead in the fashion community, setting serious trends for over 20 years in the game so it’s easy to select her as a go-to icon for inspiration. For Essence Fest, Missy did not hold back (as if she ever would!) on impressing us with her taste that we had to jump into our bag and pull out the most supa dupa fly rings we could find. Missy is flexing metals with flair that fit over the fist and are artfully flamboyant, statement pieces that are bright and beautiful. Get like her with a big snowy 4ct Diamond Ring (even one covered in beautiful black diamonds!), or a more haute appeal with an extravagant look using a large bold diamond and pretty settings. If you’re feeling more low-key, try the Butterfly Cocktail Ring to keep you covered while playing up your look.
Big Freedia is a driving force to be reckoned with! A pioneer in bounce music and native to New Orleans, Big Freedia is an inspiration for all. We love an artist with style that shines big and bright, and we love to try and channel that vibrant energy! We want big shapes, glowing accessories, and undeniable designs that keep the funky feelings alive! Get like Big Freedia, check out this gorgeous statement art deco diamond bracelet in 18K gold accented with big white south sea pearls or this darling 14K white and yellow diamond flower ring! The possibilities are endless when you’re ready to make a statement.
Mary J Blige is one of the godmothers of entertainment. Her styles have reverberated through culture for decades, it’s only right to highlight her next best look! At Essence Fest Blige rocked out in pearls and diamonds accenting her aesthetics. We took a closer look and pulled out some statement pieces so that you can get like her! For earrings, we’re going big bold and brilliant with these blinding 3.5ct 14k inside out diamond hoops! If you’re into blinging out your hands, try on these classic statement diamond gemstone rings in ruby and aventurine.
Last but definitely not least, H.E.R. – a young up and coming musician who is taking the music world by a storm. Seen in ever modern styles, a woman who loves to layer up her jewelry! We’re not one to shy away from stacking up gold and diamonds, and are so ready to tap into this look! Stackable diamond bracelets are undeniable, and with so many ways to layer them up you can really switch up your look everyday! Check out this set with a 3ct tennis bracelet, a pave diamond bangle, and a flirty diamond bracelet with a unique bolo clasp! For the ladies who love to strut with a simple chain, piling them up feels so good! Check out these two delicate and unique necklaces, the first in 14k gold with diamond accents and the second a cute cable chain design for the modern woman.
