Beyonce strips down for sexy jewelry photo

Beyonce has given fans a sneak peek at the raunchy side of her marriage to rap icon Jay-Z after posting an apparently topless photo of herself posing with her husband's jewelry.

The usually-private pop superstar has become more open about her personal life since becoming a mom to daughter Blue Ivy in January (12), introducing her baby girl to the world with a series of pictures on a specially-dedicated Tumblr.com page, and showing off snaps of her and Jay-Z through the years on her official website.

But her latest photo update is her most revealing to date - the Crazy In Love hitmaker is shown without make-up as she gazes seductively into the camera, seemingly wearing nothing but Jay-Z's diamond and platinum Roc-A-Fella Records necklace, which she holds between her lips as her curly brown hair falls on her breast to preserve her dignity.

It is not known when the picture was taken, but Jay-Z famously rapped, "Got the hottest chick in the game wearing my chain" on the Public Service Announcement interlude from his 2003 release The Black Album.
