This Friday, June 10th, the city of Baltimore will be awaiting the arrival of one of the world’s biggest stars: Beyoncé. For years, this talented performer has been singing songs that captivate many audiences and make people want to get out of their seats and dance. Something that has flown slightly under the radar over the years of her fame has been one underlying theme: diamonds. Although they haven’t been the sole focus of her songs, Beyoncé has had many hit songs with lyrics about diamonds, and without including them in some of these songs, their messages would be less effective.
In “Upgrade U,” she sings about all of the ways her success can be measured with material things. She even sings about “diamond creamed facials.” She also says “That little glimpse of light/Makes that diamond really shine” in this song, which adds to a descriptive image of a glimmering diamond in the sun.
Of course, there is also the well known “Single Ladies,” an anthem to all women who have had relationships that haven’t worked out. Here she tells everyone, “If you liked it then you should have put a ring on it,” a message for men to seal the deal with the all-time symbolic form of commitment: a wedding ring.
In a more recent song, “Flawless,” Beyoncé sings about many ways that she is flawless. Her popular lyric, “This diamond, flawless/My diamond, flawless” is one we hear on the radio today. It exudes Beyoncé’s self-confidence which rubs off on other women when she says, “Ladies, tell ’em, ‘I woke up like this: flawless.'” Here, the diamond is an accessory of an overall style that can make anyone feel flawless.
Diamonds definitely have significance for Beyoncé when she is trying to make a point about wealth, and what better jewel to use in a song to help symbolize that? You can be even more “flawless,” too, just like Beyoncé, with all the diamonds we have to offer at Samuelson’s. Rings, earrings, bracelets, necklaces, you name it, we have it, made with diamonds. And ladies, whoever you want to “put a ring on it” will most certainly do so if he sees the variety of stunning engagement rings and wedding bands our store has to offer.
