Forget all the chatter about what color Lady Gaga’s Valentino dress was (although for the record, it was periwinkle), — lets talk about those diamonds for a moment. There were a lot.
Gaga was exclusively decked out in Tiffany & Co. jewels, all of which were sustainably sourced. Her set included the Tiffany Victoria bracelet, valuaed at $45,000; a flower-inspired bracelet worth $130,000; and a tennis bracelet valued at $145,000. She was also wearing a pair of earrings that cost $115,000. The total cost of her accessories comes out to a cool $435,000 — and it doesn’t even include the most prominent item.
The real piece de resistance was her necklace. The custom item (made with her dress in mind) was dubbed the Tiffany Aurora necklace, and it features 300 diamonds, including a 20-carat pear shaped pendant. The price? It’s only available upon request. But based on her smaller pieces alone it’s safe to guess that the Aurora has a six-figure price tag.
Was it excessive? Absolutely not. 1. It was The Golden Globes, and her jewels were no more expensive than what stars have worn in the past; 2. Her Valentino gown likely cost somewhere in the six-figure range as well, and; 3. She’s Lady Gaga. She invented excessive. Besides, look how happy she is:
