Posted by on May 16, 2013

While some people could care less how many karets they have on their finger, there are those that would literally kill to have the biggest “rock”. If you’ve ever seen Blood Diamond with Leonardo DiCaprio then you probably have an idea of how many lives can be tossed aside just to find one little piece of compressed charcoal. That being said, the diamond trade is still very alive and as long as people have a penchant for the ridiculously expensive it always will be. These are the 25 most expensive pieces of jewelry in the world.


Empress Eugenie’s Bow Brooch

This brooch was from Francois Kramer, circa 1855. It was originally designed as an old mine and old European-cut diamond openwork sculpted bow. Napoleon III had it made for his wife, Empress Eugenie. Henri Loyrette, the President of Louvre, arranged a private sale with Christie’s New York in order to bring this piece of historical jewelry back to its homeland of France on April 22, 2008.


Harry Winston’s Diamond Drop Earrings

These drop earrings aren’t just in demand because of the hefty price tag. They are highly valued because they were made for the use of A list Hollywood superstars. With 60 carats and 4 diamonds they also come with a crested platinum set which can only be seen if inspected closely.


Anonymous Diamond Necklace

With a 8.19-carat heart shaped diamond centerpiece the owner of this highly valued necklace remains anonymous.


Queen Mary’s Diamond Riviere and La Peregrina Pearl

It has an estimated price of $1,828,224. This was owned by England’s first female ruler Queen Mary. It is considered to be one of the world’s most exclusive jewels that include a Diamond Riviere. It was crafted from 34 old cut authentic diamonds set in gold and silver and given as a gift by the queen to her granddaughter Princess Margaret.


The Laurence Graff Ring

English jeweler Laurence Graff bought this ring for $2.6 million during a Christie’s Auction. It became one of a kind due to the maroon central color of the diamond and even rarer due to the diamond’s octagonal shape.
