The Jan. 21, 2013, presidential inauguration will go down in history with a powerful speech from Barack Obama, an always-chic first lady, and plenty of celebrity appearances. But in the jewelry universe and likely beyond, all anyone is talking about is Beyoncé’s incredible emerald earrings from Lorraine Schwartz, which added oomph to her (lip-synched?) performance of “The Star-Spangled Banner.” The clustered earrings the celeb wore featured pear-shape emeralds gathered to form a loose star silhouette, a statement seen from a mile away. And while Queen B’s earrings and ring are proof that the Color of the Year is being wholly embraced, the statement style would look great in just about any color or gemstone. And that’s exactly what we have here: five clustered-style earrings in diamond, tourmaline, and more. Still looking for emerald? Satisfy your craving with these 25 jewels in the Pantone Color of the Year.
