Remember When Lady Gaga Rocks $30 Million Tiffany Diamond At The 2019 Oscars

So much sparkle for Lady Gaga who showed up wearing one of the most expensive pieces of jewelry in the world at the 2019 Oscars. This is the third time someone has rocked this rarest diamond which is the most cherished piece of jewelry of Tiffany & Co. In 1877, someone found the 287.42 carats diamond and sold it to Tiffany the next year.

Tiffany’s chief gemologist, Dr. George Frederick Kunz cut the beautiful rock to 128.54 carats and placed it under lock and key for protection. The jewelry is only lent to celebrities considered worthy of wearing the rare piece. Mrs. Mary Whitehouse first used the diamond with its 82 facets in 1957 at Tiffany Ball in Newport, Rhode Island.

Audrey Hepburn took permission to use it for promotional purposes and a role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. 1n 2012, this $30,000,000 diamond became a necklace to celebrate Tiffany & Co’s 175th anniversary. But, Lady Gaga is the first person to use it for an award event.

Gaga complemented the diamond with a custom black Alexander McQueen gown. Tiffany will not sell the diamond to anyone no matter how much you are offering. The brand may change this decision if someone offers what they cannot resist.
