Jewelry that bought History!

Updated on August 5, 2016

Jewelry and it's Need

Jewelry has a different meaning for different people. It can be merely a display material to show the craftsmanship rather than utilization. It can be otherwise a mark of status or wealth. Even more lively and humanly, it can be a symbol of love! The only difference is whether you choose a Cartier diamond necklace or an ordinary engagement ring. Sometimes rarity of a material makes the difference.

When it comes to expensive jewelry, most of us envision celebrities or royalty walking on the red carpet. Obviously, the super rich collectors would choose to buy the rarest multi-million dollar collections time to time when they appear in the auction market. Here, I would like to share some knowledge about the most expensive jewelry ever made. I thought of making this kind of a hub, because we are not going to see them in any local store. All we can do is to watch them in this way!!

There is a rumour that Madonna, who directed the film about Simpson and her lover Edward VIII, is the owner of the bracelet.

The eyes protrude from the socket which is made of specially cut emeralds that present a natural look. It was auctioned at $12.4 million in spite of the improper condition in which the bracelet was sold. Even though some stones had gone missing, the price was thrice its original value.
