Lady Gaga dazzled at the 2019 Oscars in a $30M Tiffany Diamond, last worn by Audrey Hepburn πŸ’Ž πŸ‘  The iconic stone weighs more than 128 carats and is one of the largest yellow diamonds in the world! Let's dig a little bit into the history of the stone:

It was discovered in 1877 in the Kimberley Mines in South Africa and at the time of its excavation was a rough stone totaling 287.42 carats. It was purchased by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1878 and cut into a cushion-shaped diamond featuring 82 radiant facets — roughly two dozen more than a round brilliant diamond — to highlight the stone’s brilliance.

The Tiffany Diamond has never been worn on an awards show red carpet. It was last included as the center stone of a necklace for a publicity shot Audrey Hepburn did for — what else? — 1961’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Gaga complemented the necklace with a pair of earrings featuring fancy vivid yellow and white diamonds set in platinum and 18-karat yellow gold, from the house’s 2019 Extraordinary Tiffany Collection.
