Lady Gaga rumoured to be wearing Audrey Hepburn’s 128-karat Tiffany diamond on red carpet

Lady Gaga is wearing a necklace featuring a stunning yellow diamond to the 2019 Oscars, rumoured to be the ‘Tiffany’ diamond previously worn by Audrey Hepburn.

Walking the red carpet in Los Angeles, the singer was seen dressed in a black strapless Alexander McQueen dress with black latex gloves which was teamed with the famous canary yellow diamond owned by Tiffany & Co.

Audrey Hepburn wore the aptly-named “Tiffany” diamond in a necklace in publicity photos for Breakfast At Tiffany’s in 1962.

The central stone of the necklace is reportedly a 128-carat diamond and cut in a cushion shape.

Fans of the A Star Is Born actor have taken to Twitter to share their excitement at the singer’s choice of jewellery.
