A Star is Born, Tiffany’s yellow and white diamond necklace

The “priceless” star studded yellow diamond Tiffany necklace made a recent debut at The Academy Awards. Lady Gaga, nominated for a few golden Oscars in “A Star is Born, wore the necklace at the ceremony. She sang the theme song “Shallow” with co-star Bradley Cooper, winning the best song category. Jewelry can appear shallow, but this necklace has history, glamour and is designed by one of the world’s most famous jewelry houses. The diamond was worn by Audrey Hepburn at a promotion for “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”. The cushion-cut Tiffany diamond weighs 128.43 carats and was created to celebrate the store’s 175th anniversary, in 2012. The necklace is set with 120 carats in Lucida (R) cut white diamonds and 58 brilliant-cut diamonds. The yellow stone was discovered at the Kimberley Mines in South Africa and was acquired by Charles Lewis Tiffany in 1878. The piece was at the World’s 1893 Columbian Exposition and the 1939-1940, World’s Fair in NY. The necklace has been worn only three times and has been shown in museums around the world. The yellow and white diamond necklace paired with matching earrings is a stellar example of “old” Hollywood.
