The actress created an iconic fashion moment in 1961 when she accessorized a little black dress and evening gloves with the 128.54-carat Tiffany Yellow Diamond for Breakfast at Tiffany's promotional photos.

If there's one woman who has the most enviable collection of jewels, it's the Queen.

Passed down in the British royal family since 1821 when it was made for King George IV's coronation, the crown's center cross features the 4-carat brilliant yellow diamond, surrounded by over 1,300 white diamonds and pearls, the Royal Collection Trust reports.
