Tina Knowles Claps Back at Criticism of Beyoncé’s Tiffany Diamond

Spread the love

Tina Knowles is speaking out in defense of Beyoncé after the pop star was criticized for wearing the Tiffany Yellow Diamond.

The “Lemonade” singer wore the 128-carat Tiffany Diamond for her and husband Jay-Z‘s appearance in the luxury brand’s new “About Love” campaign. As such, Beyoncé became the fourth woman and the first Black woman to wear the jewel, which was bought by Tiffany & Co. in 1878. 

Lady Gaga previously wore the priceless necklace to the 2019 Oscars, while Audrey Hepburn wore it to promote Breakfast at Tiffany‘s in 1961.

Additionally, the Jean-Michel Basquiat painting, Equals Pi (1982), was included in the backdrop of the campaign photos, marking the first time it’s been shared with the public.

Despite these history-making moments and Tiffany’s promise of a sizable donation to HBCU’s (Historically Black Colleges and Universities), many on the Internet have taken issue with a prominent Black artist wearing a diamond that was mined from South Africa during the colonial era.
