Diamonds come in various colors, sizes, shapes, and cuts. A diamond is measured in carats. The more carats a diamond has, the more valuable it is designated to be. High-carat diamonds are usually bigger in size.
Diamonds are often turned into items of jewelry—a necklace, a ring, a pair or earrings, a tiara. There a few particular pieces of jewelry made with diamonds that are considered the most expensive in the world. Only a few extremely wealthy individuals can afford these diamonds, as they are expensive beyond most people’s means.
First among these diamond jewelries is the Chopard Blue Diamond Ring. It is worth $16.26 million. How can a diamond ring be worth this much? A blue diamond is extremely rare. The rarer the diamond, the more valuable it becomes. In addition, this particular diamond is 18 carats, which works out to be a hefty $1.7 million per carat.
Next on the list is the Heart of The Kingdom Ruby. This piece of jewelry is a ruby necklace embedded on a 155-carat diamond mount. The diamond is valued at $14 million. Additionally, it can be turned into an equally stunning tiara.
The Diamond Drop Earrings, a pair of earrings made in 2006 by Harry Winston, the founder of the House of Winston, is the third most expensive piece of diamond jewelry in the world. This pair of pear-shaped diamond earrings is worth $8.5 million.
Moving down the list, we find the next most expensive piece, which is the Blue Diamond. Any rare diamond will be worth a fortune, but as stated, blue diamonds are the most rare and elusive. This attribute gives them a higher value than their regular counterparts, which themselves are by no means easy to obtain. A blue diamond is worth $7.98 million.
Finally, there is a diamond necklace exquisitely carved by Stefano Canturi that is worth $5 million. At this price, there may now be certain people out there for whom this is not too high a price for a lavish gift or personal possession.
It is often said that a diamond is a girl’s best friend. It is also true that for some men who are stricken with true affection, no diamond is too expensive a gift for that special woman. Still, the world’s most expensive diamond jewelries are such that a man, or a woman for that matter, would have to amass more wealth than many individuals are fortunate to have in their entire lifetime, in order to afford even the least expensive of these items.
In reality though, any man or woman would be greatly pleased to come into possession of even a mere one-carat diamond.
