Solange Knowles shared her son's heart-warming words of comfort

"My son said, mom I'm just happy YOU didn't fly off the float, & that your safe, & that you still get to have the love you have. *tears dried," she wrote.

The 29-year-old reportedly lost her ring when she was enjoying the carnival celebrations as the Honorary Muse to local all-female group, the Krewe of Muses, on an impressive stiletto-shaped float.

While she was throwing beads into the cheering crowds, Solange's art deco inspired ring, given to her by husband Alan Ferguson on their wedding day, reportedly slipped off her hand.

Solange’s 1.1 million Instagram followers will no doubt be familiar with the ring as the singer often shares snaps of the dazzling piece, which features two facing diamond stones set on an open gold band, a unique creation designed by Solange herself and fine jewellery designer Lorraine Schwartz.

"Aaaaaand it begins!!!! #turnupmardigras," she wrote in the photo's caption.

“Also, I can't put into words how grateful I am to be given the Key to the City! NEW ORLEANS, from the bottom of my soul, I am so thankful” she wrote on Instagam alongside a selfie in which she held the key.

New Orleans is clearly close to the songstress's heart, as it was where she and music video director Alan tied the knot in November 2014, in a spectacular three-day ceremony with family and friends.

Tina Knowles, the singer’s mother, revealed days after her daughter’s wedding that there wasn’t a dry eye on the place” when the couple announced their personalized vows. "They were just so heartfelt and I just think the wedding epitomized Solange as a person and her and Alan’s artistic flair," Tina told Entertainment Tonight.
