At the 91st Academy Awards, Lady Gaga wore the iconic, cushion-cut brilliant Tiffany Diamond, weighing 128.54 carats with over 82 radiant facets.
On the red carpet, Lady Gaga wore one of the largest yellow diamonds in the world, last worn by Audrey Hepburn for the Breakfast at Tiffany’s publicity photo shoot.
The Tiffany Diamond, considered among the most important gemstone discoveries of the 19th century, was unearthed in 1877 in the Kimberley Mines of South Africa. Founder Charles Lewis Tiffany purchased the rough diamond the following year, solidifying the brand’s reputations as a diamond authority.
“Lady Gaga is the ultimate creator, innovator and rule breaker, and I’m thrilled that she will be wearing the legendary Tiffany Diamond on the awards show red carpet for the first time since it was discovered 141 years ago” said Reed Krakoff, Tiffany & Co. Chief Artistic Officer.
