No doubt the world is filled with very expensive things, some of them so pricey you might want to scream.
Here are some of the world’s most expensive things:
1. A million dollar shoes
The world’s most expensive pair of shoes ever worn in a film – $666,000 – are the ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz (1939).
Originally sold at auction in 1998, the pair of shoes set the same record at the time with a sale price of US$165,000 and would go one to break and re-set the record in 2000 at a Christie’s auction when the shoes were sold for US$660,000!
2. The world’s most expensive wristwatch
The world’s most expensive watch is named the Graff Diamonds Hallucination.
Crafted with 110 carats of diamonds in a rainbow of colours with a price tag of $55 million, the Graff Diamonds Hallucination watch qualifies more as an art piece than timepiece.
3. The world’s most expensive phone
The world’s most expensive phone is custom-made Falcon Supernova iPhone 6 Pink Diamond which costs a whopping $48.5 million!
The owner of this over-the-top phone is Nita Ambani, wife to successful Indian businessman Mukesh Ambani. According to ValueWalk.com, the phone itself is 24-carat gold, featuring an enormous pink diamond and platinum coating.
4. The world’s most expensive car
The world’s most expensive limited-edition car is the Rolls Royce Sweptail which costs $13 million.
This one is tricky due to the fast-paced nature of the automobile industry, but after careful consideration of all current price data, the ultra-luxurious and personalized Rolls Royce Sweptail seems to be top.
Some of the cool features of the rare breed of machine include bespoke seating, panoramic sunroof, center-console champagne dispenser and a leather-wrapped casing for your laptop.
5. The world’s most expensive TV
The most expensive television in the world is the Stuart Hughes Prestige HD Supreme Rose Edition costing $2.25 million.
The prestigious TV boasts diamond buttons, with 18-carat pink gold and 48 additional diamonds used in the frame.
6. The world’s most expensive domain name
The world’s most expensive domain name ever sold is CarInsurance.com.
According to Wikipedia, the domain was sold in 2010 for a whopping $49.7 million!
Clearly someone really wanted the name for their company, but would you blow just under $50 million on a fancy domain name?
7. The world’s most expensive purse
The world’s most expensive purse is the Mouawad 1001 Nights diamond purse which costs $3.8 million.
Holding the Guinness World Record since 2011, the Mouawad 1001 Nights diamond purse was handcrafted by artisans who took a total of 8,800 hours to complete the unique handbag.
The one-of-a-kind piece purse also features 18-carat gold and 4,517 diamonds!
