Although Tiffany has not confirmed the value of the necklace, when Paris Hilton got engaged to Chris Zylka in 2018 her 20 carat diamond ring cost 2 million dollars (which is approximately £1,638,060), to give you a rough idea of how much the stone would set you back.

Forget Marilyn Monroe's classic line, "Square cut or pear shaped," Anya made us nostalgic for heart-shaped bling. The moment was a throwback to the 'Kate Winslet in Titanic-inspired craze' that the iconic 'Heart of the Ocean' necklace fueled after the film's 1997 release date. Thankfully for us magpies, the decadent jewellery didn’t stop there. She also wore Tiffany & Co. diamond studs (worth £1,800), the brand’s Soleste pear-shaped Halo Engagement Ring with a diamond platinum band and a Tiffany & Co. High Jewellery ring in platinum with a diamond of over 5 carats.

For her outfit she entrusted longtime stylist Ryan Hastings. The diamonds paired spectacularly with her sheer Dior haute couture dress, which featured scalloped embellishments, and championed the visible lingerie trend which has also been touted by the likes of Rita Ora and Hailey Bieber recently. The beige translucent material of the skirt was completely see through, adding a sense of modernity to the otherwise prim ensemble, for the final touch she added embellished Jimmy Choo strappy heels.

An A-list glam squad was led by Gregory Russsell on hair, who coiffed her stunning Audrey Hepburn-esque up-do and makeup artist Georgie Eisdell who revealed on Instagram that she used Dior Beauty products to achieve Anya’s classic smokey eye. 

The actress attended the event with her musician partner Malcom McRae, who showed off his signature edgy style. He has played in the band More alongside Kane Ritchotte for the last three years, and is signed with Warner Records. 

Based on her romantic jewellery choice it’s clear she’s up for wearing her heart on her sleeve (or should we say decolletage?)...
