The Most Expensive Gifts Ever
When you have loads of money, it seems pretty pointless saving it. And there’s no better way of spending it than on a gift. Here are some of the most expensive gifts in history.
12. The diamond bra – $10, 000
A shiny fantasy of every woman. This bra was inspired by the Angels Collection from Victoria’s Secret, and if you asked any woman, it is more than worth it!
11. The Star of the East – $100, 000
A daughter of a wealthy Irish immigrant received a gift on her wedding day that made her the richest woman in the world at that moment. The gift was a huge diamond that has since become popular as the “star of the east.”
10. “Imperial Majesty” perfume – $215, 000
If you really have no idea how to make a woman truly happy, getting her this beauty might be what you are searching for. This perfume by the British designer Clive Christian has recently been written in the Guinness book of records as the most expensive perfume in the world.
9. Taylor’s Diamond – $1, 050, 000
The beautiful actress Elizabeth Taylor is known to have received many precious gifts. However, but nothing matches the beauty she got in 1972 from her husband at the time. Richard Burton got her a 69.42 karats pear-shaped diamond as a gift for her 40th birthday. It was worth $1, 050, 000 at the time, but that was more than 40 years ago. Don’t even dare to guess what it’s worth now.
8. iPhone 3G Kinds Button – $2, 400, 000
It is a phone. The Austrian jeweler Peter Aloisson is still developing this unique phone, which was named as the most expensive in the world. It is made with quality diamonds and gold to add to it something special, which makes people go “wow.”
7. Luxury BMW7 – $10, 000, 000
The famous Indian film RA1 with Kareena Kapoor and Shahrukh Khan was a hit all around the world. Because of its massive success, Khan decided to get movie members expensive gifts. No more no less than brand new BMW7 cars. This gift became famous not only because it is luxurious, but also because this was the first time someone gifted something this expensive to these many people at once. Each car cost around $10 million.
6. Chopard wristwatch – $15, 000, 000
Adorned with three heart-shaped diamonds and one 15 karats pink diamond, this timeless watch by Chopard is worth amazing 15 million!
5. Luxury jet – $60, 000, 000
Not often does one gets to say “I got a luxury airbus for my birthday.” One of the richest men in the world, Mukesh Ambani, gave this jet as a gift to his wife Nita Ambani for her 44th birthday. For her, it was a dream come true. To be honest, it would be so for us as well. The jet was equipped with luxurious bar room, music systems, boardroom, bathrooms, bedrooms…
4. Yacht – $85, 000, 000
Anil Ambani, an Indian businessman, bought his wife Tina the most extravagant gift. It even shadowed the example of Shah Jahan-Mumtaz Mahal. The gift was marked as one of the most expensive in the recent history. Some people claim that it looked a bit vulgar considering the huge poor population in India. However, we think that after all, it’s their money to spend.
3. The Kohinoor – $13, 000, 000, 000
The British Monarch Queen Elizabeth got this gift from Raja Duleep Singh as a token of his respect. The Kohinoor diamond is considered to be the most expensive diamond gift to date. This gem is one of the most important parts of the British crown. India is asking for it back, but seriously, who would return a gift like that?
2. The bronze sculpture of Roman Abramovich – $14, 000, 000, 000
One of the wealthiest men in the world spent a staggering $14 billion on a gift for his now former girlfriend. To keep a smile on her face, he bought her a bronze sculpture!
1. Taj Mahal – priceless!
No matter how much money you spend, you cannot beat the marvelous Taj Mahal. A famous ruler constructed this architectural masterpiece in memory of his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal. It took 22 years to complete the complex, as well as 20, 000 workers and 32 million Indian Rupees (which was an insane amount at the time). A great, undying symbol of love just had to be number 1 on our list!
