The breathtaking accessory - weighing in at a whopping 128.54 carats, with an estimated value of $US30 million ($AU42 million) - was last seen on Audrey Hepburn in 1962 in a shoot for Breakfast At Tiffany's.

In fact, the 2019 Oscars marks only the third time in history it's ever been worn. Before Hepburn, the diamond's first ever wearer was Mrs Sheldon Whitehouse at the 1957 Tiffany Ball in Rhode Island.

According to the New York Times, Lady Gaga's Tiffany deal is the biggest red carpet jewellery deal ever signed.
