Lady Gaga knows how to wow audiences with both her voice and sense of style. So it’s no surprise that for the biggest movie awards show of the year, she chose what Tiffany & Co. calls one of “the largest and finest fancy yellow diamonds in the world.”
The singer-actress sported “The Tiffany Diamond” at the Feb. 24 Academy Awards. The famed stone measures an inch wide and is a cushion-shape brilliant-cut stone weighing in at 128.54 carats. It has 82 facets, which is 24 more than a traditional brilliant-cut stone.
Audrey Hepburn was the last person to wear the famous rock, which she donned for a “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” promotional photo shoot. The stone had only been worn in public one other time before that.
Lady Gaga, who is a Tiffany spokesperson, has been wearing Tiffany jewels throughout this awards season, including to the Golden Globes, SAG Awards and Grammys.
But it seems she saved the best for last. The Oscar nominee wore the huge yellow diamond on a 100-carat white diamond necklace with matching drop earrings.
Lady Gaga donned the opulent stone for both of her 2019 Oscars ceremony looks. Her red carpet outfit was a black strapless Alexander McQueen ballgown with long black leather gloves.
She wore another black dress, this time a more sporty number by Brandon Maxwell, for her on-stage performance. The singer performed “Shallow” with her “A Star Is Born” co-star and director, Bradley Cooper.
Their performance of “Shallow,” which went on to win the Oscar for Best Original Song later in the evening, might have sparkled even more than the Tiffany diamond.
Even “Good Morning America” tweeted that it was “living for this moment” between Cooper and Lady Gaga.

Entertainment Tonight called it a “stunning rendition” of the song with undeniable chemistry between Gaga and Cooper. The pair received two standing ovations, and fans at home loved it as well.
In her emotional acceptance speech for Best Original Song, Lady Gaga told those at home, “If you have a dream, fight for it.”
