The Met Gala, which celebrated the new exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, included Dua Lipa as one of its co-hosts alongside Michaela Coel, Penélope Cruz and Roger Federer. Dua’s stunning look for the event – a Chanel ballgown in white and black tweed inspired by Claudia Schiffer’s 1992 couture collection. However, it was her jaw-dropping 100 Carat Tiffany diamond necklace that had all our attention (being the first to wear the legendary statement piece.)
According to Vogue, the white diamond, which is set on Tiffany & Co.’s Lucida Star necklace, pays homage to the renowned yellow Tiffany Diamond “via its near identical cushion cut.” The new white diamond, which has 82 facets and is sustainably sourced from Botswana, is described on the label as being D-colored.
The oringal Tiffany Diamond was discovered in 1877 and purchased by founder Charles Lewis Tiffany for $18,000. It was fashioned into the iconic cushion-shape it is today and is valued at $30 million. Only four women have worn it – Mary Whitehouse, Aubrey Hepbum, Lady Gaga, and Beyoncé.
