Blue Ivy Bids $80,000 on Earrings
On Saturday, Blue Ivy attended the 2022 Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles with her parents Beyoncé and Jay-Z. During the event, she showed interest in one pair of earrings. She even stood confidently and bid over $80,000 on a pair of Lorraine Schwartz diamond earrings.
This earring was worn by the grandmother and host of the evening Tona Knowles. Some information about the earring revealed that it was once owned by Beyoncé herself.
A video of the gala also surfaced on the internet. An inquisitive and excited Blue Ivy is seen sitting between her parents as she waved her auction paddle. She wore a blue outfit and completed the look with a black pair of shades.
In the end, Blue Ivy did not win the auction. She was outbid by the founder of Mielle Organics, who won the bid at $105,000.
This bid may have become news but it is not the first time that Blue Ivy has bid at an event. In 2018, when she was only 6 years old, she bid on an acrylic painting of Sidney Poitier. She waved the paddle high and bid $17,000.
Jay-Z jokingly tried to snatch the paddle from her and failed. She again bid for the item at $19,000. The art was sold to someone else for $20,000. But that did not stop Blue Ivy. She big again for the next artwork and won the piece for $10,000.
While many people ridicule Jay-Z and Beyoncé for allowing their 10-year-old to bid, some people were happy to see a confident kid being supported by her parents. The fact that Blue Ivy has super-rich parents cannot be ignored.
But it also cannot be ignored that the parents have to do what they deem for their child and not act according to what the rest of the world would think. So, another angle to look at this thing would be how parents are teaching their child to be confident in public and understand how money works so that once she is old enough, she can figure out her way in this world.
