Beyonce Gives Butterfly Ring From JAY-Z to London Museum
A pricey bauble from Beyoncé’s jewelry collection now sits alongside other exquisite jewels from Catherine the Great, Elizabeth I and Empress Josephine at a London museum.
According to Mashable, Queen Bey’s gorgeous butterfly ring can be viewed by visitors at the Victoria and Albert (V&A) museum.
In the video above, you can see that the “Papillon ring” features titanium wings, encrusted with green tsavorites and surrounded by diamonds. And when you wear it on your ring finger, you can actually manipulate the wings.
It’s truly an extraordinaire ring designed by good friend and jewelry designer Glenn Spiro (AKA “G”). The ring was an actual gift given to Beyoncé by her hubby JAY-Z.
"Beyoncé is a figure whose personal style the V&A is proud to represent and a gift from whose personal collection we are honoured to receive," said V&A's jewellery curator Clare Phillips. "The papillon ring she has gifted is an exquisite example of contemporary jewellery design by one of Britain’s master jewelers."
The ring now sits proudly on display in the William and Judith Bollinger Jewellery Gallery at the V&A in London.
