This necklace is an iconic piece because it features a 128.54-carat diamond, and the Grammy-winning, top performer, wore this stunning piece as elegantly as anyone can imagine.
Notably, the diamonds on this diamond necklace have some of the largest yellow diamonds incorporated in it. We should also mention that the iconic Tiffany diamond was first and unearthed initially or mined in 1877 in South Africa.
It’s since been worn by several other A-list celebrities like singer Lady Gaga (in the 2019 Oscars), Audrey Hepburn (who also popularized the whole Breakfast at Tiffany’s romantic comedy as she wore the necklace during the film’s press tour in 1961), and Edwin Sheldon Whitehouse’s wife – Mary Whitehouse (During the 1957 Tiffany Ball in Rhode Island); among others.
Why is this such a big deal? Well, the diamond necklace not only boasts Tiffany’s iconic diamonds, but also the diamond incorporated in the necklace is valued at $30million. Beyonce wore the necklace when she, alongside her husband, Jay Z, was unveiled as Tiffany & Co’s new faces.
