Starting over? Beyonce and Jay Z 'design new wedding rings'
Beyonce and husband Jay Z are reportedly putting the past behind them with newly designed wedding rings.
The couple looked stronger than ever at the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards in New York City on Monday.
Beyonce was accompanied by Jay Z and daughter Blue Ivy, four, as she accepted the Fashion Icon Award. By contrast their past relationship turmoil appeared to be documented on Beyonce’s explosive album Lemonade, which is allegedly about her husband’s cheating.
But sources close to the stars claim the release of Lemonade has brought the couple closer, and as a symbol of their renewed love, they’ve had new wedding rings designed.
“They are starting over,” a source told Britain’s Heat magazine. “They’ve even had new wedding rings designed as a way to show off their fresh start.”
In snaps obtained by the magazine, Jay is pictured wearing a black and gold engraved ring. His original ring was a plain gold band.
“Jay is wearing his, but Beyonce is still finalising her design. She wants something more symbolic and special,” the source added.
The singer was pictured without her wedding ring at the start of her Formation World Tour in April as speculation mounted about the couple’s marriage.
Since then Jay, 46, and Beyonce, 34, have been spending plenty of time together in a bid to work on their relationship while the singer is on the road.
“They are together all the time. Jay doesn’t go to clubs or travel without her – ever. He’s joined her on her world tour and is trying to build trust again,” the insider said, adding that it’s a slow process and Beyonce is “still healing”.
Jay is also reportedly planning to make his own album addressing his version of the events after the fall out from Beyonce’s hit record – and the Formation singer will make an appearance on it too.
“If Lemonade was Beyonce’s declaration, then this one is Jay’s redemption,” the source noted.
