Not that we're complaining, but we've seen more of Lady Gaga in the last few weeks than we have our own family. On Sunday February 24 The 'A Star Is Born' actress rocked the Oscars red carpet wearing a piece of bling worth an unimaginable price tag. Like, for real.

Yes, the singer-turned-acting-superstar arrived wearing a Tiffany yellow diamond (one of the largest yellow diamonds in the world) from the Tiffany & Co vault and matching earrings worth a cool £52 million ($69 million or Dhs249,624,429). No biggie.

Not only is the necklace's value literally mega, but it's the first time the jewel has been released from the Tiffany’s vault since Audrey Hepburn wore it. The late icon donned the necklace for the promotional pictures for 'Breakfast at Tiffany’s' in 1961, and the brand has never let the diamond out of its vault since then.

“The priceless Tiffany Diamond is one of the largest and finest fancy yellow diamonds in the world,” a statement from Tiffany & Co read. “Released from the vault specifically for Lady Gaga, this marks the first time in history that the legendary Tiffany Diamond has graced an awards show red carpet.”

The 141-year-old 128 carat Tiffany Diamond is a rare and precious gemstone, and seeing Gaga in it on the red carpetre reminded us of a scene from 'Ocean’s 8' (we've got our eye on you, Sandra Bullock).

Gaga, who missed out on the gong for Best Actress but took home Best Original Song for 'Shallow', which she shared with co-writers Mark Ronson, Andrew Wyatt and Anthony Rossomando, paired the necklace with a fitted black gown by Alexander McQueen and a pair of elbow length gloves.

In her speech, she thanked her director and co-star, Bradley Cooper, for “believing”. She added: “There is not a single person on the planet that could sing this song but you.”

She went on to say: “If you’re at home, and you’re sitting on your couch, all I have to say is this is about hard work... I worked hard for a long time. It’s not about winning, it’s about not giving up. If you have a dream, fight for it”.
