Get the Look for Less: Beyonce’s “Blue” Necklace

By  |  1 Comment

Beyonce recently shared this picture of her wearing a gold “Blue” necklace (on her Tumblr, where all the cool kids are these days).  I assume the necklace is a tribute to her four-month-old daughter, and not her mood or Katy Perry’s hair or the state of Jay-Z’s balls (I can’t believe I went there, either).  Before having my own kids, I thought wearing jewelry bearing the names of your children was a tad corny.  But now that I have two little ones…?  Yeah, you guessed it:  I wear my personalized baby charm necklace almost every day.  Because here’s the thing about motherhood:  It makes you absolutely, ridiculously corny.  AND YOU DON’T CARE.

“It keeps you close to my heart,” I told Skye the other day as she touched my necklace in our very own Hallmark commercial moment.  (See?  The corniness just naturally spews forth!)

So if any of my fellow corny mamas out there are interested in a necklace similar to Beyonce’s, I’ve hunted down another option that capture the love and spirituality of the piece…but not the undoubtedly high price tag.

Beyonce apparently paired separate necklaces together to achieve this look.  Here’s how you can do the same:

 

A more simple sideways cross necklace.  The damage…?  Just $43 on Etsy.com

A gold nameplate with a similarly modern feel as Beyonce’s — and it’s on sale for $49.99 on LimogesJewelry.com.  (May need to shorten the chain to achieve the same look.)
