In our world, money seems to be cheap. There was always a section of people who were rich and who could indulge in different kinds of expensive things. History talks about rich merchants and traders paying painters and sculptors to develop their portraits or a statue.
Nowadays, the rich go out of their way to get a richer variant of a common product. And these products are so expensive that it really makes you wonder how much money a few people possess.
Here are a few pictures that showcase the most expensive things in the world:
1. The Crystal Piano
Built with crystal, this is a beautiful piece. Any person who wants to decorate their house would love to have this at the centre of their living room so that people can see it. However, we can’t really say if anyone would play it or ever dare to touch and stain it somehow. At 3.2 million dollars, it is too hot to handle.
2. Gold-Plated Bugatti Veyron
The Bugatti Veyron has a powerful engine which is one of the best in the world. Of course, the car itself is costly. But then, imagine how the cost would increase when you plate the car with gold. It goes up to a whopping 10 million dollars. No one would want to drive it!
3. 201-Carat Gemstone Watch
This is a watch crafted with care by Chopard. Embellished with Haute Joaillerie, the watch is covered with gemstones and diamonds making the price go up to 25 million dollars!
4. Diamond Panther Bracelet
A bracelet studded with diamond is very expensive. Add to that a famous history, like the love story of Edward VIII and Wallis Simpson and you get one of the most expensive panther bracelets in the world. It costs around 12.4 million dollars.
5. The Perfect Pink Diamond
We have all seen diamonds that look white and twinkle in the sun. But have you ever seen a diamond that is pink in colour? Most of us haven’t – it is so rare! No wonder it will be very expensive if there exists something like it. The 14-carat perfect pink coloured diamond ring actually exists and it costs 23 million dollars.
6. Yacht History Supreme
We would all love to have a yacht ride of our own, but there are some yachts which will make our adventure richer. The Yacht History Supreme has an exterior which is gold plated with 10,000 kg of gold, while the insides are studded with diamonds. While some say the diamonds might be fake, it doesn’t stop the price from going up to 4.5 billion dollars.
7. Expensive Television
While television is slowly getting obsolete with the introduction of Netflix and various online streaming portals, it doesn’t stop the producers from making one premium TV for the rich crowd. With a rose diamond plating, this television will cost you 2.3 million dollars! I hope they give 4K with it.
8. Magnetic Floating Bed
Imagine sleeping in the air. That is what the Magnetic Floating Bed promises. The bed will keep you 1.2 feet above the ground and it can handle about 2000 pounds. A special technology with magnets keeps the bed floating on the air and bumps its price to 1.6 million dollars.
