To open the Renaissance World Tour in Toronto Beyoncé wore a custom Tiffany & Co. Elsa Peretti® Mesh dress. The unique one-of-a-kind dress drew inspiration from some of the late jewellery designer’s most famed designs: Diamonds by the Yard and Mesh. Sparkling chains that mimicked fabric were adorned with bezel-set stones for the ultimate sparkle and sensual look and feel. As per Tiffany & Co., the handcrafted dress took over 200 hours (about 1 week and 1 a half days) to make and was created from 150 feet of mesh ribbon woven with 300,000 rings through the mesh, side panels and shoulders.
