Adorned in jewels, Taylor Swift left the MTV Video Music Awards decorated with awards. She equalled the record for the most awards won in a single evening. But the event set the web ablaze when the singer misplaced a diamond worth…$12,000!
On September 12, the MTV Video Music Awards 2023 were held at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey. Hosted by Nicki Minaj, the event brought together the biggest artists of the moment to reward the best music videos of the year. And if glamour and elegance were the order of the day, it was an unusual adventure that caught the eye.
Singer Taylor Swift, nominated in several categories, paired her look with an assortment of jewelry, including an onyx and diamond ring from high-end jeweler Van Cleef & Arpels. According to Joseph Saidian & Sons, the 18-carat yellow gold ring retails for $12,000.
However, at some point during the evening, it seems that the singer managed to dislodge the stone in the center of the ring and misplace it!
As a video shows, the “Anti-Hero” alerted a security guard as soon as she noticed the diamond was missing, holding out the ring without its impressive stone, and grimacing. Taylor Swift is then seen bending down to inspect the floor in the hope of finding the stone.
