Oscars 2019: Lady Gaga’s $30 million necklace with 128-carat diamond

Lady Gaga channeled an iconic Audrey Hepburn look at the Oscars. From her black gown and elbow-long gloves to her sleek updo and glitzy diamond jewelry, Gaga looked like a 21st-century Holly Golightly.

The giant canary-yellow diamond at the center of her necklace is, in fact, the same stone that Hepburn previously wore in a publicity photo shoot for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”

The 128-carat Tiffany diamond was found in South Africa in 1877, and was later brought to Paris where it was cut into a cushion shape.

The diamond, which is said to be worth at least $30 million, has been set in jewelry on at least four occasions, most famously when Hepburn wore it in the 1961 photo shoot.

Since then, the diamond has been stored on the main floor of the Tiffany’s Fifth Avenue flagship store in New York City. According to a press release sent to E! News, “this marks the first time in history that the priceless 141-year-old Tiffany Diamond has graced an awards show red carpet.”

Still many others were comparing the iconic look to a similar scene from “How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days.”
