Lady Gaga deslumbra con diamante Tiffany en los Premios Óscar

La cantante y actriz Lady Gaga brilló en la alfombra roja, no solo por su vestido negro del diseñador Alexander McQueen, sino por su collar, en el cual se destacaba el diamante Tiffany, uno de los más grandes y finos diamantes amarillos del mundo.

Liberado de la bóveda especialmente para la ganadora por la Mejor Canción Original “Shallow”, de la película A Star is Born, es la primera vez en la historia que el legendario diamante adornó una alfombra roja de los Premios Óscar.

Valorado en 30 millones de dólares, el diamante Tiffany de 128.54 quilates solo había sido utilizado dos veces, la última por Audrey Hepburn en el 1962, para una sesión fotográfica de la película Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

There are no words. Just kidding. I have so much to say about this. I want to know who decides such a thing? Did Tiffany approach Gaga? Gaga’s peeps approach Tiffany? Why now, after almost 60 years, was it decided that it was time to show this nugget the light of day again? For those who didn’t do the deepest google dive of all time the moment they saw Gaga appear on the red carpet tonight wearing THE TIFFANY DIAMOND, enjoy the fruits of my labor: It was last worn by Audrey Hepburn in 1961 for a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” publicity shoot. I’m not saying Gaga doesn’t deserve to be wearing it, but what do we think this is saying about Gaga and “A Star is Born”? She kinda has to win now, right? Unearthed from South Africa’s famous Kimberley Mine in 1877, this 128.54 cts. diamond is one of the largest yellow diamonds and, as of today today, is the MOST EXPENSIVE PIECE OF JEWELRY EVER WORN AT THE OSCARS. Gaga is only the third person ever to wear this gem. (The first was Mrs. Sheldon Whitehouse at the Tiffany Ball in Newport in 1957, then Hepburn, now Gaga). I know the jewelry community is all abuzz about this, but I hope the rest of the world understands how momentous this is. I just can’t imagine. I hope Gaga understands. A STAR IS WORN! 💎 💎 💎 #LOTRWD #tiffanydiamond #ladygaga #academyawards #oscars2019 #oscars #breakfastattiffanys #jewelryhistory #yellowdiamond #schlumberger #tiffany #tiffanyandco #redcarpet #astarisborn

En esta ocasión, el diamante está suspendido de un collar de platino que alterna diamantes redondos y el llamado corte cojín (cushion-cut). El diamante tiene 82 facetas, 24 más que el corte tradicional de 58.
