video of the Tiffany diamond on display

No Comments 14 April 2007

They’re calling it the Breakfast at Tiffany’s diamond, and that assumption seems to draw in even more people. NECN has video footage up of the rare yellow Tiffany diamond being installed at the Smithsonian museum in Washington, D.C., and interviews some gawkers admiring the diamond. While no one interviewed said they came because they were an Audrey Hepburn or Breakfast at Tiffany’s fan, I’m sure quite a few people did end up making the trip because of that Audrey tie-in. It’s funny to see how relatively small the diamond seems to be, yet it’s still larger than the most famous diamond in the world, the Hope Diamond (though I guess being cursed does help you become famous, as the case is with the Hope). I’ve seen the Hope diamond in person and it does look a lot larger when you’re face to face with it. Does anyone have plans to visit the Tiffany diamond?

If you are in the Washington, D.C. area or plan to be between tomorrow and the end of September, you may want to make a detour to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. Why? Because the enormous yellow Tiffany diamond, worn only twice in its history, will be on display! You can finally see, up close and personal — barring the glass and security alarms — the 128 carat gem that Audrey Hepburn was lucky enough to wear. You may remember from an earlier post that Audrey was one of two people to ever wear this priceless stone, and that it was remounted in a custom-made necklace for her publicity photos. Tiffany & Co. was kind enough to loan the diamond to the Smithsonian institute, and you can see it, along with the Hope Diamond and some other iconic gems, through September 23.
