A Look Back at Our Beyoncé Jewelry Stories

In honor of her ‘Homecoming’ special on Netflix

by Marion Fasel

I did not intend to watch all of Beyoncé’s Homecoming on Netflix. I just thought I would take a glimpse late Thursday night. The special had me hooked from the beginning. It wasn’t just the performance at Coachella Beychella, it was also the behind the scenes making of the career-defining moment. Queen B shared personal stories about her difficult pregnancy with twins and how she had to work her way back into shape. Mainly she showed how hard she worked on the production. It’s astonishing the way she adds layers of meaning to her pop music through clothes, dance and all kinds of cultural references. Everything is done with intention and purpose.

While there isn’t a fine jewelry story to tell from Homecoming, the brilliance of the film reminded me of all the times we have covered the star as the sole subject of a story on The Adventurine because of her amazing jewelry and messages. Take a look back at the posts below.
