Beyonce’s Daughter Blue Ivy Bids $80k On Pair Of Diamond Earrings, Still Doesn’t Win
When I was 10-years-old, I wasn’t placing bids on nothing. I didn’t even know if my mom’s bid to the power company was going to be enough to keep the lights on.
But Blue Ivy? Well, she’s experiencing life a little differently. The 10-year-old daughter of Beyonce and Jay Z walks around knowing her parents are worth nearly $2 billion combined. She will never have to worry about money.
Just take a look at this video, shared by Abbott Elementary creator Quinta Brunson. In the video, Blue Ivy was with her parents at the 2022 Wearable Art Gala, and she had full control over the bidding paddle.
The 10-year-old raised her paddle for the evening’s highest-priced lot: a set of sparkling Lorraine Schwartz earrings worn by her grandmother (and the event’s co-founder), Tina Knowles, and previously owned by Queen Bey herself.
The earrings were about to be sold for $75,000, but then Blue Ivy raised the paddle at the last second to bid $80,000.

And from there, the price jumped even more. Mielle Organics founder Monique Rodriguez ended up taking the earrings home with a final bid of $105,000. So it was a smart move by Blue Ivy, she got the price up over $100k!
The fancy fête was held in Santa Monica to raise money for Tina Knowles and husband Richard Lawson’s WACO Theater Center. Blue’s aunt, Solange Knowles, also helped chair the glamorous gala, the theme for which was ‘Harlem Nights.’
Several stars were in attendance, including Tyler Perry, Lupita Nyong’o, Keke Palmer and Kelly Rowland.
Safe to say, a lot of money was raised on Saturday night. Lots of rich people in that building.
