Added on: 25th May 2015
THE PINK GRAFF RING
Going for $11.8 million this diamond came from the mines of South Africa.
It comes with a 5-carat pink diamond and has been mounted with Graff
diamonds to raise the price even more.
WALLIS SIMPSON’S PANTHER BRACELET
Owned by King Edward VIII at one point, this piece of jewellery was sold
for $12 million and the buyer was rumoured to be Madonna.
EMERALD AND DIAMOND TIARA
Commissioned by German Prince Guido Henckel von Donnersmarck,
he gave this tiara as a gift to his second wife Katherine in the year 1900.
There are also rumours that this tiara belonged to the wife of
Emperor Napoleon III of France. Regardless of passed ownership, however,
it contains a row of 11 polished pear shaped emeralds at about 500 carats
in total and an anonymous bidder paid $12.76 million for it.
BULGARI TWO-STONE DIAMOND RING
This easily becomes one of the most expensive rings in the world due
to the two large diamonds it contains. Created in 1972 from the Bulgari
collection, an Asian collector willingly bought the ring for $15.7 million
after an intense bidding war.
HEART OF THE OCEAN DIAMOND
Gloria Stuart wore one of the most expensive jewels ever at the 1998

and replicas are being sold for $3.5 million in auction sales.
THE WITTELSBACH-GRAFF DIAMOND
Sold for $24.3 million to Laurence Graff in 2008, it was rumoured to be the
diamond from the Indian Kingdom of Golkonda and that King Philip IV
of Spain bought it to include in the dowry of his teenage daughter,
Margaret Teresa, in the year of 1664.
THE $30 MILLION DIAMOND BIKINI
The record price for a single piece of jadeite jewellery was set at the
November 1997 Christie’s Hong Kong sale: Lot 1843, the “Doubly Fortunate”
necklace of 27 approximately .5mm jadeite beads sold for US$9.3 million.
THE GRAFF PINK
Said to be the most expensive piece of jewellery in the world, it was sold
for a staggering price of $46 million in November 2010. Famously
known as “The Graff Pink”, it is classified as a type II colour diamond
and has a perfect rating which gives it a price of about $1.85
million per carat.
