During your life time you have, at one time or another, found yourself looking to buy a necklace for your loved one. Unavoidably, you must have hit upon some abnormally expensive necklaces, but you can count yourself very fortunate if you have ever managed to actually see any of the most expensive necklaces – these necklaces go for tens of millions of dollars! |
Although there are many different types of super expensive jewellery including rings, tiaras, and bracelets, below I am going to through 5 of the most expensive necklaces that currently exist in the world. The most expensive necklace in Singapore displayed for the public.
Incomparable The list of the most expensive necklaces in the world could simply not start with any other but the so called 637-carat L’Incomparable diamond necklace, which also broke the Guinness record to become the most expensive necklace ever in 2013. With the flawless yellow gem having more than 407 carats, the necklace is beautified even more with the 90 white diamonds weighing as much as 230 carats. Its current owning company Mouawad, who are also known for breaking other jewellery-related Guinness records such as The Very Sexy Fantasy Bra in 2003 and 1001 Nights Diamond Purse in 2010, have actually put it to sale at approximately $55million! To make things even more interesting, the massive centrepiece diamond found in this necklace was found by a little girl on a pile of rubbish, many years ago. Originally collected on a diamond mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo, the rubble was deemed worthless by the workers and thrown to the nearby garbage. The girl’s uncle figured it was worth something and sold it to some African diamond dealers, who in turn resold it to other buyers. Its value kept increasing with each of its sales before finally falling on the hands of Mouawad, who turned it into the finest piece of necklace!
Heart of the Ocean Most of us are already familiar with a replica of this necklace thanks to the Titanic movie, where Kate Winslet was seen having it on. Unlike the replica though, which was valued at $10,000, the original Heart of the Ocean is worth $20million, largely thanks to its 15 carat blue diamond making it absolutely shiny and beautiful!
Heart of Kingdom Ruby Valued at $14million, this electrifying diamond necklace was expertly crafted by the famous Garrard & Co. and weighs 155 carat. Its main rubble is a Burmese Ruby weighing 40.63 carat and was specifically investigated by two independent Swiss laboratories guaranteeing its rarity! Another extraordinary crafting characteristic of this hand-made necklace is its ability to be easily turned into a Ciara at any time.
Briolette Diamond Necklace Although initially valued at over $8.5million, the Briolette Diamond Necklace was actually sold for over $11million at an auction in Hong Kong! Weighing at over 75 carats with a perfect and flawless purple-pink marquise diamond, it took William Goldberg 6 months to craft it into a perfect shape. The chain of the necklace is made of 18 carat white gold and can be adjusted as per the owners wish.
Neil Lane Diamond Necklace Valued at at $4million, the Neil Lane Diamond Necklace was unsurprisingly named after the creating company who are distinguished as one of the major companies to provide the most magnificent jewellery pieces to celebrities throughout the world.
