Celebrities wear jewelry every single day, yet it seems as though some of the most beautiful pieces often include emeralds. Case in point were Angelina Jolie’s Emerald Drop Earrings that she wore to the Oscars a few years back- who will ever forget those?! The latest in the line of gorgeous green-hued jewels are the emerald earrings Beyoncé wore this morning to President Obama’s inauguration.
Beyoncé’s emerald earrings were designed by Lorraine Schwartz and are a whopping 80 carats. I admit that while Beyoncé sung one of the best renditions of the Star Spangled Banner I’ve ever heard, I couldn’t keep my eyes off her spectacular earrings.
While I can’t find anything quite like Beyoncé’s inauguration earrings on the market yet (give it a couple of weeks and there will be tons of replicas), I found a couple of statement-making emerald earrings at BaubleBar that will suffice until a closer replica is available.

Something tells me we’re going to see an onslaught of emerald earrings this year thanks to emerald being the 2013 color of the year, but I hope we get a true replica of Beyoncé’s emerald earrings first!
