Lady Gaga shines with $30-Million necklace at the Oscars


According to Tiffany & Co.'s Instagram account: The cushion-cut yellow diamond on Lagy Gaga's necklace weighs 128.54 carats, and has only been worn twice before—including by Audrey Hepburn.

We already expected Lady Gaga to look absolutely fabulous at today’s Academy Awards, and the A Star is Born actress did not disappoint.

Her black Alexander McQueen gown with its angular hips was a study in sculpted fashion, but it’s the fine jewelry she chose to wear with it that made our eyes sparkle.

Dangling from a necklace that's set with rather large cushion cut diamonds is a 128-carat canary yellow diamond.

This Tiffany & Co. creation is reportedly valued at $30 million (or PHP1.56 billion based on current exchange rate). The diamond was last worn by Audrey Hepburn for those iconic posters for Breakfast at Tiffany’s, albeit in a different setting.

Lady Gaga began working with Tiffany & Co. when the brand launched its HardWare collection, a line that’s a bestseller here in the Philippines.

Clearly, the partnership has given fashion-lovers looking for a good dose of Old Hollywood glamour something to delight in.
