Blue Ivy, Daughter of Beyoncé and Jay-Z Bids Over $80K on Diamond Earrings

Being the daughter of a billionaire and an internationally admired pop star can give you access to things no other child your age can obtain. Blue Ivy, the daughter of Hip Hop entrepreneur, Jay-Z, and platinum artist, Beyonce made a bid for an item that costs more than some families earn in a year.

According to Fox Business News, the 10-year-old daughter of the Carters placed a bid on a pair of diamond earrings for over $80,000.The bid sent shockwaves even among the auctioneers who announced the expensive piece of jewelry. Those auctioneers, her grandmother, philanthropist Tina Knowles-Lawson, and actor/TV host, Keke Palmer were surprised when she placed the bid on a pair of Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings.

A video showing a portion of the bid was taken by Abbott Elementary‘s Quinta Brunson and placed on her Instagram account and reposted by a Twitter user over the weekend.

Carter did not win the item as she was outbid by Mielle Organics founder Monique Rodriguez and her husband when they placed a final bid of $105,000.

This event took place at the Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 22.

This isn’t Carter’s first attempt at buying an item at an auction. Today reported that at the same event back in 2018, the young girl, who was six at the time, also placed a bid for a piece of artwork. The item was an acrylic painting of a young Sidney Poitier. After first placing a bid in the amount of $17,000 for the art, she placed a higher bid of $19,000 before losing out to the winning bid of $20,000. That artwork was taken home by filmmaker, Tyler Perry.

She did manage to take home an item from that auction. For $10,000, she bid on and won a 36″ x 36″ art piece made out of deconstructed law and medical books. According to Vanity Fair, $10,000 was the price Carter paid for it.
