The Jewelry Insider

August 21, 2008

As the most famous Material Girl turns 50, takes a look back at the jewels, diamonds, necklaces and styles that have transformed Madonna from ‘Madge’ to ‘Her Majesty’.

Brace yourselves jewelry lovers. Madonna turned 50 last weekend. It seems like yesterday her madgesty was rolling around on stage in her wedding dress. Or maybe that’s just the denial talking.

What to give the woman who has everything? Rumor has it that husband, Guy Ritchie, is giving in to Madonna’s wish to adopt another child from Africa and is throwing in a is $470,000 diamond necklace from Bulgari for good measure. A baby and a bauble – what more could a gal ask for?

Some of you may have been in diapers when the Material Girl came on the scene, so to celebrate her half century, would like to highlight a few of our favorite Madge jewelry moments. You might have to take out a second mortgage for tickets to her Sticky & Sweet tour, but let’s face it – she’ll probably be performing until we all start collecting Social Security, so there’s time.
