Mary J. Blige's Super Bowl Earrings Included 33 Carats of Diamonds
A stage as elite as the Super Bowl halftime show calls for some equally impressive threads. Obviously, fashion icon and singer Mary J. Blige is prepared to tackle it with style and glam.
The Queen of Hip-Hop Soul teamed up with her longtime friend and design collaborator, Simone I. Smith, to make some special jewelry for her time in the spotlight at Super Bowl LVI this Sunday. The duo, who own and co-founded jewelry brand Sister Love, designed a blinged-out version of their beloved Queen Hoop for the big night. The 14-karat gold earrings will undoubtedly sparkle in the L.A. sunshine with their whopping 33 carats of diamonds.
"Working with Mary on Sister Love is always fun, but working together on these earrings was on another level," Smith tells InStyle. "We wanted to create something totally over the top for the Super Bowl, so we decided to fully bling out our Queen Hoops — we wanted them completely dripping in diamonds. 33 carats later, we had the perfect hoop."
The one-of-a-kind, diamond-encrusted set will also be available by special order only for a limited time exclusively through Simone I. Smith. Or, you can snag the bedazzled accessories in 18-karat yellow gold over sterling silver with simulated diamonds in a large and extra-large size, ringing in at $1,500 and $2,500, respectively.
