What matters most to you when you receive a gift? Well, monetary valuation cannot be excluded from the process of appreciating a gift. Most of us cannot afford whole islands or an entire line of shipping vessels, so our loved ones have to settle for the little jewellery and “toys” we can afford believing we put all our love in them. The Wealthy and mighty, however, do things differently. They are the category of humans whose desire and that of their loved ones can be comfortably met by their financial power, which is why these 10 will shock you.
Rang Yai Island
The most expensive gift one can give you is a cool private island with sandy beaches and palms to cool your back on a sunny day. Not all islands are costly, though; for instance, some islands cost less than a modestly sized property in London. But you do not want that kind of island because it is the type formed by windswept rocks of the coast of Canada.
Rang Yai Island in Thailand has an estimated price of over $160,000,000 advertised a few years back as the dream home of peace seekers, which got billionaires throwing bids. The island is considered the holiday paradise because of its magnificent white sand beaches and lush tropical forest. The Thai government, however, prohibited its sale to foreigners quashing the requests from many billionaires to buy it. It is now owned by a private eco-tourism company that only rents it out to willing billionaires.
Cobblestone Yellow Diamond Bracelet
Ever thought of what stones to buy at Tiffany’s for your loved one? The most expensive one they got is the cobblestone Yellow Diamond Bracelet. The price is rarely quoted in public but is currently estimated to be $1.4 million. The overpriced bracelet has a combination of 59 yellow diamonds and shiny white diamonds totalling to the count of more than 100 carats. The bracelet`s rather ugly and heavy ornate appearance is just glorious. If you have some millions to splash for a single dinner date, you can always rent it.
AudioQuest Speaker Cable
They say nothing says “I love you” as perfectly as a speaker cable, right?. If you love a musicophile, then Futureshop UK has just the cable to do the job. Their revered piece of cable is priced at $175,000. The AudioQuest speaker cable is 100% solid with a smooth-finished surface, a silver conductor, and a multilayer carbon-based noise dissipation, which may explain its “reasonable” price. Reviews of the cable are also positive, although it may not be worth it for a regular guy considering its price could get you a small home somewhere in LA.
Steinhausen Luxury Accessory Case
The most interesting question is, where do you put your expensive items after you buy them? Well, maybe this pretty costly luxury accessory box will do. The Steinhausen luxury accessory box can store about 20 watches, and it is a price tag on Amazon stands at $99,999.00, which is approximately a thousand more than the Millage Flying Tourbillion watch. Critics didn’t spare the ambitious sellers, but they seem to have tucked a whole life-changing lottery ticket in there! Some people have already bought it; hopefully, their reviews will tell us more.
Millage Flying Tourbillon Watch
The Millage Flying Tourbillon was going for $99,000 a few days ago in Amazon, and you wonder what it has. Well, the watch comes in different colours, and the straps are made from the alligator leather. Oh, don’t forget the seven-year guarantee. So, We are not sure what brought the price of the watch close to that of a Rolls Royce. Most critics took to the review sites to pinch at the alligator hide watch seller asking whether the alligator was golden. Either way, it would make a hell of a gift, right?
Ralph Lauren Alligator Ricky Bag
Alligator hides seem to be giving rhino horns and diamonds a run for the money on Amazon of late. Here was a Harrod tasteful handbag that is unambiguously gold. The Ralph Lauren Alligator Ricky Bag has a price tag of a whopping $28,000. The bag is made from the alligator skin, and the bag was named after Ralph, Lauren’s wife. Well, the description says it has multiple strap configurations with roomy pockets inside, but then, 28k, really?. You could probably buy the entire alligator with that!
Cristal Louis Roederer Champagne Jeroboam 2012
With a champagne bottle covered by gold-art ribbons from the world’s best goldsmiths, you can impress anyone. The champagne is wrapped in a ribbon that has been dipped in 24-carat gold. There are only 400 bottles made with a particular design and customized with each order, so yours will not look like someone else’s. Different things are the perfect gifts that target to impress your dear ones.
The champagne is also worth tasting, carrying a mixture of citrus, white roses, and a combination of sour grape and rosewood flavour. Now, it costs $26,000, so the question is whether this money is paying for the ribbon or the rich fruit flavour, because, on a normal day, you can get both separately for far less!
The Globe Clutch is one of the Harrods ridiculously bling items. Buying something like a luxury handbag for $6,750 is modestly fair. However, would you pay that for a Globe Clutch? Now, according to Harrods, that is what they will charge you for a customized globe clutch, so make sure you are well armed before you walk with your children in there. Critics took to the site blasting them for selling a globe clutch for the same amount it costs to travel the entire globe anyway! Why not just book a flight and check out the globe yourself, right?
The next item on the list is from the British department stores, the Gina Courts shoes that are available for $2100 at Selfridges. The shoes depict features of gold, with a decorated wedge heel and a classy peep-toe covered in hundreds of Swarovski crystals in green, red, and gold. The design and appearance of the shoes make them a perfect Christmas because where else will you wear Red. Green and Gold? The shoes are described as the walking style statement on the Selfridges website, and that is where the money test comes in. Reasonably, for that type of money, one expects to get more comfortable looking insole and less plastic, right? Well, apart from the bling, it is just an old Chicago Glamour plastic shoe that you would get for 100 bucks or less.
Clive Christian No 1 for Women, 50ml
Please note the quantity! 50ml is all. The item made it to the list because it was billed as one of the most expensive perfumes in the world. The perfume comes in Fortune and Mason in 50ml bottles that cost $750. The most disappointing part is that the perfume is now on eBay at $9.9. the shiny gold bottle is impressive, and all but then the reviews confirm it is simply the same product which makes you wonder where the $750 one was manufactured.
