Bessie Smith was known as the Empress of Jazz for a reason. She was one of the most influential voices in blues and jazz, and the most famous female singer in the 1920s and 30s. Often incorporating social commentary into her music, she gave a voice to the issues that the African American middle class were facing at the time. In true empress form, Bessie had a collection of fabulous earrings and we’d like to think her namesake earrings would've been part of the regular rotation.
