Sure to send music fans in a frenzy, Rolling Stone has announced their list of the top 100 singers of all time.

100 Greatest Singers of All Time

And in a stroke of genius, the magazine enlisted the help of today’s top artists to write about and rank their favorite songbirds. Mary J. Blige covers #1 entry, Aretha Franklin, Billy Joel sings the praises of Ray Charles (#2) and Lenny Kravitz gushes about the Mick Jagger swagger (#16), to name a few.

Of course where there is a list, there is controversy. How can Christina Aguilera make the cut but not Beyonce? Bob Dylan is number 7? And how on earth can the iconic jazz chanteuse, Nina Simone, get a nod but not Ella Fitzgerald, Edith Piaf or Billie Holiday? And perhaps their biggest oversight? Barry Manilow is nowhere to be found!

But despite your personal singing persuasions, Jewelry.com wants to add a little bling to your sing by creating a special jewelry selection to compliment some of the ladies on the list.

Add a little sparkle to your inner songbird!

Feelin’ a little bit country? Bonnie Raitt (#50) and the always-perky Dolly Parton (#73) would tip their cowboy hats to this little diamond and gold gem.

Aretha Franklin’s gold hoop earrings were an iconic presence during her early days. Pay ‘respect’ to the list’s top dog with a glittering pair of your own.

When you see butterfly jewelry, who else do you think of but the list’s leading lady, Mariah Carey (#79)?

Tina Turner’s big wheels keep on turning with a spot at #17 on the list. Big hair and big earrings are the only way to pay homage to this icon.

Christina Aguilera (#58) has come a long way from Disney’s Mickey Mouse Club. Get a cocktail ring similar to the glamorous gem she wears here for a fraction of the price.

Whether you are a die-hard Whitney Houston fan or a Janis Joplin rock-n-roller, this classic diamond note pendant will tell the world you write the songs that make the whole world sing.
