Blue Ivy Carter isn’t afraid to put up the big bucks.
At the 2022 Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles on Oct. 22, the 10-year-old participated in a luxury auction, where she vied for the highest ticketed item of the evening.
In a video shared from the event, the 10-year—with the supervision of her parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z—bid over $80,000 on a pair of Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings her grandmother and event organizer Tina Knowles was wearing that evening, which once belonged to the “Single Ladies” singer.
Blue Ivy—who wore a blue flapper-inspired look, complete with strands of pearls and feathered headband—eventually lost out to founder of Mielle Organics Monique Rodriguez and husband Melvin, whose winning bid was $105,000.
The theme of the gala was “Harlem Nights,” celebrating fashion from the 1920s to the 1950s. Beyoncé wore a custom, strapless Gucci mermaid gown that had stars embellished at the bust. She completed the glamorous look with pink opera gloves with ruffles at the shoulder, a pair of Lorraine Schwartz earrings and a Dolce & Gabbana clutch.
